A More Spring-Like Weekend Rewind

Well we finally had what I would consider an April weekend filled with rain showers, cloudy skies, and temps in the 60s.  Much different temps from what we've had the past several weekends! 

Friday Elyse went to work with her daddy & I since my babysitter aka Gigi aka my mom is out of town on vacation.  She was super good all day...what can I say she's an incredible baby! 
All lady-bugged up for work!

Even though she was good, having her at the office all day & playing the joint roll of momma, employee, and wife all at the same time was exhausting!  We decided to treat ourselves for survivign the day with dinner out at Chili's.  We also ran a few errands and finished off the evening with some yummy frozen custard! 

On Saturday it was back to work for the Layman family so the three of us headed back into the office until lunchtime.  Nick spent the afternoon working in the yard while I played inside with Elyse & took a nice little nap!  I also managed to snap these picture of our rose bush & clematis!  With the abnormally warm spring, everything is blooming like crazy! 

 Roses galore!
 Clematis covering our fence!  The colors are so vibrant!

Saturday night we headed down to visit Nick's sister, brother-in-law & nephews.  They just love Baby Elyse & she was in a great mood for most of the evening even with the lack of her evening nap!  We had a casual dinner and just spent the evening catching up.  It's so sad that we only live 45 minutes apart but yet it can be months between visits...life is just way too busy sometimes! 
 Our precious nephews, Hunter & Jackson!  Love those smiles!
 Hunter even read Elyse a story...8 Little Monkey's Jumping on the Bed!
 And how about a Hunter sandwich...do you think these boys love their uncle Nick?!?


Today has been a laid back day at home. We are tweaking Elyse's schedule a bit and so far so good.  Of course we're less than 48 hours into it, but I'll take what I can get at this point!  It was a cloudy windy day so after lunch and some play time, we all 3 laid down for a nice Sunday afternoon nap.  Before we knew it, it was time for Elyse to eat dinner and time to head to small group!  Another great weekend with my fabulous family of three!  
The loves of my life!
