This was our first 'official' summer weekend, and I'd say we started it off right!
On Friday afternoon when Rob got home, I went to help my friend, Cassi, set up for a surprise party for her daughter and a few of her closest friends. The occasion? Elementary graduation! It was a luau theme, and we all had a blast a the party. Jaqs loooved "swimming" in the pool and wishing she could play with the big girls!
Rob had 7 on 7 all day Saturday, so Jaqs and I just did some chores around the house and ventured out for a little shopping that afternoon. That evening we had yet another surprise party, but this time it was FOR Cassi! Her birthday was last Thursday, so her hubby had some of her friends come in from out of town, and we all met up for a night of fun at a really cool restaurant outside of town. I think we beat her at her own game ;)
The restaurant also has an outdoor stage with a big dance floor with tables all around and plenty to keep kids entertained. There was live music, and it was just a really fun night with great friends! We enjoyed every minute of it. Well, except for the part where a guy started choking/seizing/we don't know for sure what at the table next to us. That was scary, but he ended up being fine.

On Sunday afternoon, my friend, Vanessa (the other one in black above ;)), had her FINAL baby shower before their daughter makes her grand entrance. I went to that while Jaqs napped then hung out with her favorite guy. We had a cook-out with friends later that evening and ended up at a block party where a little old lady was feeding Jaqs cream puffs. That was....interesting, but what am I supposed to do?! I wasn't going to tell her to stop because 1. I don't want to be rude. 2. She thanked us later for "letting her love on our baby!" :) Very sweet.
This doesn't really have much to do with anything, but Jaqs has been so determined to get her shoes on lately, and it's just so precious. She sat on our bed working on this for at least 20 minutes yesterday afternoon. She was concentrating to hard, and she was not giving up on it! Sweetie pie.
I guess it's technically summer vacation for the hubs, but he's working all morning and has football tonight, so it doesn't quite feel like it yet! It will be nice to have him home in the afternoons the rest of this week though!
Hope you lovelies had a great weekend, too!
