Weekend in Review

This weekend was fast and fun. A whirlwind of being "on the go", but we also took time to take it easy and enjoy the quiet of our home Sunday evening. That's our favorite :).
Saturday morning we got up early and headed to College Station for the highly anticipated Texas A&M vs. Alabama game. The Aggies didn't win, but it was a great game!
Zach's mom drove 5 1/2 hours just to watch Bear for us; thank you, Lisa!! He didn't take a single nap during the 6 hours we were gone, but was supposedly "an angel". Hmmm. Give Grammy a break next time, Bear!
praying for the Ags (they needed it)
Bear's first birthday crown came in the mail on Saturday; we tried it on him and it's hilarious. So cute! Find it here.
Sunday afternoon we went to Bear's cousin's 3rd birthday party. The boys had fun swimming; it was such a nice day!
Zach's mom also painted these Winnie the Pooh canvases for Bear's playroom. We love them! I asked her to paint something with "vintage Pooh" feel and some of our favorite sayings. I'd say she delivered!

Hope your weekend was a great one! Next Sunday is the official start of fall and we are ready in HOT Houston! Bring on the cooler weather and pumpkin spice lattes :).
