Weekend Plans

The first weekend of summer vacation is here! And we are GLAD! Friday is the last day of school and also my Peyton's birthday, so a party is definitely in order. She is more low key than Rhett so her party will be low key as well. She has requested pizza and chips with a homemade chocolate cake. Yummmmm!

Saturday is our first day of summer vacation, and just as it should be...we have no plans. I think we may plant the flowers we didn't get to on Memorial Day since it was FREEZING here! Then we have early mass followed by dinner. I am thinking barbecue chicken, baked potatoes, and corn. Saturday night I am looking forward to a quiet night with my family, the TV, and a big bowl of popcorn.

Sunday looks to be a beautiful day. I am planning on making some waffles with fresh fruit for a late breakfast. Then we have Rhett's soccer game in the late afternoon. Sunday evening we can relax and play outside and sit on the porch as long as we want...because school is out! Happy summer friends!

Flynn's summer favorites...sundresses! I love to wear these on my little ladies in the summer. They are so much cooler than shorts, and much more comfortable too. These are from Baby Gap, but last year her favorite was from Walmart.
I picked up a few summer essentials this week.
And I made this delicious cherry cheese pie based on a recipe from my dear blogger friend Kathleen.
You must try it. Today.
My baby's first braid...
This little lady loves spring...
and I don't blame her one bit!
We're still making wishes here...
and I hope hers always come true.
My little Rhett "graduated" from Elementary School today...Flynn and I have a little something special for him when he gets home.
Happy weekend friends!


  1. Hey, the cherry cheese tart looks great in a pie! I think I should try it that way so I can get as big of a piece as I'd like. How sweet to celebrate the moving up to middle school for Rhett. That dress of Flynn's is so pretty with the flowers on the front. Enjoy the laid back weekend. And happy birthday to Peyton.

  2. Oh that dessert looks wonderful!
    Happy Birthday Peyton!! How fun to have your birthday on the last day of school....
    Yay for summer vacation!

  6. I have so much to say! First of all First Braid is adorable and lovely! And oh that spring dress on Flynn.. I LOVE! Okay... my girls wear sundresses all summer long. It actually looks weird to see shorts on Anna. Okay and same as you... I found some cute cute cute casual , perfect for school sundresses at Walmart too. Just took a picture in their sundresses today! And a super happy birthday to Peyton! Have a lovely first weekend of summer friend! xoxo tara

    PS gona be in Philly in June. I made Scott look at the map to see how far you are from Philly... too far and in the wrong direction. But I told him one of these days I'm going to make the trip! :)

  7. Awwww, how sweet is that surprise for Rhett? You are the greatest mama! Love how your little girly girl always looks so sweet in her pretty dresses and bows! My 3 year old won't wear dresses unless I make her. I think she doesn't like having to hold up her dress to go potty. Love those sundresses, very bright and cute!

  8. Oh, and I love your new picture!! You look great!

  9. Love your pictures! We made the same thing for supper last night and it was a big hit! I haven't had bbq chicken in a long time.

  10. Happy Birthday to your Payton. lovely photos of the girls and the cherry chesse cake looks delicious! what a way to start off summer vacation.


Thanks so much for saying hello!
