One Heck of a Weekend

Last weekend was super busy for us from Friday night all the way to Sunday afternoon. We had a school-related outing, two birthday parties, and three meals with family. Cub and Car were in town for the weekend, so we got to spend lots of time with them. Riley, his fascination with Car still going strong, loved that.

We made a brief stop at Nola and Nopsi’s house on Friday evening to see Cub and Car and to have a quick dinner before going to a fun event for Riley’s school: City Park Night. We went last year, and it was so much fun. It was an even better time this year since we know a lot more of the school families. Riley had a blast running around with Jack, Cole, Sophia, and Claire.

Rory even had fun staying up WAY past his bedtime and only getting a bit whiny. Towards the end of the night, all he wanted to do was walk around the carousel, so that’s what we did. Silly boy.




The next morning was Sophia’s birthday party at BooKoo Bounce. The theme was Frozen (of course) and Queen Elsa even made an appearance! Riley, however, did not get up from his seat at the table to go see her. He was too immersed in his cupcake.

We headed straight from the party to meet my fam at Company Burger for lunch. SO good.



We laid low on Saturday night, putting the boys to bed at a reasonable hour (as opposed to 11pm the night before) and watching some of the Saints game. Then the next morning we went down to the Marigny for breakfast with the fam at the Ruby Slipper Café. The menu looked better on paper than it did in front of me, but we enjoyed spending more time with Cub and Car before they left to go back home.




After breakfast, we went back home, put Rory down for a nap, ate lunch, and then got on the road again. Zac’s birthday party was that afternoon in Prairieville. Jaimi planned a really cute Lego-themed celebration, and we all had a good time.




We didn’t get home until almost 6, so we gave the boys a quick dinner and bath and got them both into bed. And then Kenny and I collapsed onto the sofa, staring at the tv and not even eating dinner until we finally mustered up the energy to crawl into bed ourselves.

It sure was one heck of a weekend.
