Weekend Rewind~Summertime Already!?!?

The weather this weekend was absolutely gorgeous!  I seriously think I could take an entire year with weather like we've been having & simply travel to the mountains for my snow fix & the beach for my hot, hot fix!  80s, sunny, & a slight breeze...yes please! 
We spent Friday evening with my parents so they could have some Elyse time.  They were out of town for most of the week so my mom didn't get to fulfill her babysitting duties. 

They did bring home some fun goodies for Elyse including these fun socks!  Apparently they are supposed to teach her to recognize and discover her feet. Of course she would rather just look upside down & backwards at the college basketball that was on the tv...this girl loves her some college basketball!  I think her daddy is just hoping that she loves watching baseball just as much!

Saturday was a busy day around our house.  Most of it involved this hole being dug in our garage...don't worry it was for a good reason, no problems with our house.  Hubby also got started on taming the jungle that managed to grow up around our house in only a matter of 10 days!  This is abnormally warm Spring combined with a good soaking rain made for some crazy tall grass! 

I also took advantage of the gorgeous weather & snapped some photos of our gorgeous tulips that are in full bloom!  I wish tulips would bloom all summer, the colors are just absolutely beautiful & vibrant! 

Saturday night my parents took Elyse to their house so Mommy & Daddy could have a date night.  We went out to a nice meal @ Longhorn Steakhouse...one of the newest restaurant additions in our area.  It was a delicious, relaxing meal & we even mostly achieved our goal of not making the entire conversation about our Baby Girl.  This is certainly easier said than done as most of the time I can't hardly even remember what our lives were like without her! 

We finished up the evening with shopping for Elyse's Easter basket & her Easter dress.  We got her some cute things & while I still haven't bought her dress, I'm pretty certain of which one I'm going to buy.  It's so hard to make decisions about a 3 month old's Easter dress, I can't imagine what it will be like in a few years when she has an opinion of her own!  ha! 

Sunday we headed to church and then came right home so Hubby could finish up the yard work.  I worked in the house while Elyse took 2 really good naps!  She had been a little fussy the past several days, and honestly hadn't been sleeping very well.  I think she just needed to play a little catch up!  In between her naps we grabbed her hat & headed outside for some Vitamin D! 

Being outside with her is so much fun!  I can't wait to spend the summer days with her splashing in the water & getting our suntan...with high quality SPF of course!

What a lovely weekend. Those baby socks are fantastic! Must get Mac some of those. The weather has been so wonderful here too. Although I think the rabbits ate all of our tulips this weekend! I got home on Sunday and they were all gone! I guess that's what happens when the dogs aren't there to chase them away.
