Good Monday morning, my friends! I hope you had a lovely weekend. We certainly did here in Pennsylvania. Typical for March, our weather was slightly undecided about which season it preferred. Saturday was beautiful. Warmer and sunny, with a few random showers here and there. Sunday was cold and rainy, and did I mention cold?
Friday evening, Peyton picked Flynn up, and she spent the night with her and Chris! She had such a good time. Peyton made shrimp tacos, and they played games, watched a movie, had pancakes for breakfast, went to mass, and out to dinner.
My Peyton and my Flynn.
Saturday morning, Steve and I had a breakfast date at Perkins, and then we visited with my mom. We arrived while they were doing their morning exercises. It was so nice to see her interacting and enjoying herself! We had a nice, long visit with her, talking and laughing. Every moment I spend with her reminds me of how very blessed my life has been because she has been with me every step of the way.
Sunday brought a special visit with one of the most amazing families I have ever met. This wonderful Blogging world brought Kathleen and me together, first through comments, then through texting, and eventually in real life. We have met a few times through the years, and I am so thankful for the beautiful friendship our families have formed. They were in our part of the woods this weekend, and Kathleen asked if we were available to meet for lunch. We were free, and if we weren't, we would have become free, so we met at a restaurant and picked up where we left off as if no time had passed. We talked and laughed and vowed to get together again. Thank you, Kathleen, for a great visit!
The whole bunch of us! We were only missing their oldest, at college, and Peyton and Chris, who don't get up before noon on Sundays. : )
Last week, my Rhett saw his favorite basketball player, James Harden, who now plays for the Philadelphia 76'ers. They played in Cleveland, and Steve, Nicolas, Rhett, and Kyrstin went to see the game. I was so happy for Rhett! He is a huge fan and had a great time. Rhett is such an amazing son, and I am so thankful for him every day. He is doing wonderfully at work with Steve and is a great brother to all his sisters, especially Flynn. He is an amazing boyfriend to his lovely girlfriend and a blessing to me every single day.
Leaving you with a picture Flynn took while Madison was driving her home one night last week. The lake is thawed, the days are longer, and the sunsets stunning. Happy spring, my friends!
Have a cozy day.
