Weekend Redux

As the weather gets nicer the weekends just get more and more fun.
Friday night in the big town:
Lance was a little late getting home as he had to premark the course for the RedBud race next weekend. Are you running? I spent the whole day in the yard planting, mowing, and enjoying the amazing day. After school I brought the kids home and insisted we have a backyard party. Veggies and guac, steak on the grill, dinner outside... Three cheers for Spring weather!

Saturday fun:
Coffee on the front porch, planting the veggie garden, soaking in some more sun. It was a great day topped off by a magical night. Saturday night we went to the Oklahoma Children's Theatre's Fairy Tale Ball. Our good friends Brent and Tyfanna were the chairs of this event and we decided to go check it out. It was a fantastic night. The kids got dressed up, Zella in her prettiest princess dress. Zander was a swashbuckling pirate.
The first hour of the party was filled with family games and activities. Sword fights, fairy stories, making crowns and shields, getting tattoos. The kids had a blast. Then we took them upstairs and checked them in for their own dinner, show, dancing, facepainting and more. We had the grown up version with dinner and a live auction. We wound up the night dancing as a family. It was such a wonderful event and a magical night for the kids.

Sunday, Fun Day.
We spent yesterday getting caught up on life. We missed church because Zella slept until almost 9:30! All that fairy tale fun will wear a princess out. Last night we got to send the weekend off in style with some good friends from the neighborhood coming over for dinner.

So much fun but I have to say, I am soaking in my three quiet hours this morning and gearing up for another week. What did you do this weekend?
