Weekend Wrap-Up: Birthday Party and a Bonfire

It was a super fun weekend! Just goes by too quickly.

Friday: Henry had a Walk a Thon at preschool and I helped with that for a bit. He is so adorable with his friends. Evie was thrilled to come home for the weekend. Me too - kindergarten is no joke. We are all ready for some down time. Carl grilled and we enjoyed a nice dinner without rushing for bedtime. 

Saturday: We took a long family walk to the park and enjoyed the gorgeous weather. Fall in Middle Tennessee is amazing and makes the harsh winter (harsh to me - maybe not harsh for a New Yorker.) Later, we headed to the Onello girls birthday party. Three girls with September birthdays make for a super fun celebration. It was at a gymnastics place and my kids had a ball. Best part of a birthday party is the cake and their cake was amazing. I should have had an extra piece. After the party, we went to their house for dinner and playtime. Evie and Abby have been friends since they were in our bellies so it's always fun to play together.

Sunday: Everyone slept in a bit but we still made it to church. Evie and Henry went to Sunday school for the first time. They loved it and so did we because adults can skip over to Starbucks which is such a nice treat. We had a lazy afternoon before heading to the church bonfire! Hands down one of our favorite church events. Evie and Henry were super excited to see their friends, make 'smores and hang out by the fire.  Two late nights in a row is still a lot for our kiddos but it was a great time. Fingers crossed everyone sleeps in tomorrow morning!

Hope y'all had a super weekend! It's almost October - my very favorite month. Cannot wait for pumpkins, crunchy leaves, trick or treat, festivals and of course adorable costumes.
