How was your long weekend? Hopefully you were able to enjoy some time with family and feel refreshed.

I got to spend some time with some of my favorite people; the hubs, my niece, brother and sister-in-law, just to name a few! Heart = full.

We had everyone to come our house for the weekend, which means that I got to hang out with the cutest darn 19 month old I know.

She bursts my heart at the seams. I missed her not waking me up yesterday morning with "Aunt MereMere", watching her cover her face in yogurt and calling Kyle "unke ca ca."  We got a whole lot of much needed family time with my brother and sister-in-law too ;) The "bro-bros" went fishing and came back with a hefty supply of fishies, while us girls did some shopping and catching up. 

It was a birthday celebration weekend for both Matt & Emily, so what better way to celebrate than to indulge in some of the best food A2 has to offer?! Hannah joined us, and took center stage. They don't see many toddlers here (mostly because this is way too fancy of a place for children, exemplified by the lack of changing table in the bathroom ;), but she was happy to greet everyone and devour the gourmet mac and cheese.

This is a fair warning that Hannah has taken over the blog today. It's those pigtails that are just so irresistible. Being an aunt rocks, thanks Matt & Emily for having her. Have more please. Thank you.

After a big cookout with family on Sunday evening, we spent Monday outside beginning the "VK Landscape Plan 2.0".  Thanks to all of our parents for ALL of the help! My arms are still sore from hauling mulch and picking weeds! Just picture the Clampetts and you'll get a good idea of what it looked like around her'. Pick-up trucks running over poles included.
I'll be back to show ya'll the progress.

Picking weeds really wore Hannah out too!

Our house has been so busy for the past week, I wasn't sure what to do with myself after everyone departed. Slices of watermelon and one glass of wine later, Maizy and I both found ourselves snoring on the couch.
