One great weekend!

What a weekend!
Saturday started off with the basics - breakfast and running some errands. The kids were happy and in good moods, and all was good.
After nap, I took them over to my parents house, where they engage in activities such as the following:

Lilly and grandpa climbing.

Zac and grandma enjoying a treat.

They spent the night over there so that Jeremy and I could go to a BBQ at my good friend Stephanie's house. Let me give you just a quick background on me and Stephanie. We met in preschool. Yep, age 3. Best friends through Junior High. Sometime around high school we lost touch - we went to different high schools and this was before facebook, email or even everyone having cell phones. It happens. I beat myself up over it for a lot of years, but I don't have to anymore. By college we had completely lost touch and were going our separate ways. When I started my facebook account a year (ish) ago, I searched for her. No luck. A couple of months ago, I had a "friend request" from her. She found me.
We reconnected and have become fast friends... again. Last night we got to meet her husband and meet some of their friends - everyone was wonderful. Included in the group was one other friend from Junior High, Kim, who I also haven't seen in so many years. Kim is expecting her first baby this month. A girl named... wait for it... Lilly (not sure on how they are spelling it, but you get the idea).
Anyhow, we had a blast. I took no pictures, but that's ok because there is time and will be plenty of get togethers.

Anyhow, due to the fact that the kids were at my parent's, I got to sleep in this morning. Then, I ran the 5 miles to their house. It was a rough run, but I was glad to get one in! Mom drove us home, and this was the scene not long later:

Zac crashed in his crib.

Lilly crashed on the couch.

My parents sure do wear them out!
After nap, we went BACK to my parent's house for dinner, and the kids are now tucked into dreamland.
All things considered, it was a great weekend! How was yours?

I love that the kids are sleeping in the exact same positions.

How fun that you had a BBQ with Stephanie and Kim. That's so 1993 of you! I'd love to see some pictures next time.

I'm getting ready to post about my weekend right now.

I thought their positions were funny too. Sounds like a fun weekend! Except for the running 5 miles part.
