Best Weekend!

This weekend in Austin was one that made my heart smile so much! Here is our weekend in pictures and recaps!

We arrived in Austin on Sat night to stay with Trish (6 months preg). As soon as we arrived we ran a few errands (with Jack in tow) and then ran home to get ready to meet a few girls from high school, one of which was in town from Tampa, Fl. My dear friend Kacee (far left) lost her best friend/husband recently and it felt so good to hug her, tell her I love her and touch her sweet belly (19 weeks preg). Though her husband was not with us in person, I know he was listening to all our stories at dinner and smiling down. It was a night that we all needed, and I can't wait to get all of our kids together so very soon!

We woke up the next morning and had a pajama breakfast party with the Besher & Winters families. Jack's godparents now live in Austin, so while we are sad they no longer in Houston, it was awesome to be able to have them come over with the twins while we were in town! Trish was a wonderful hostess and we all had such fun just lounging around and eating a delicious breakfast! We only took a few pictures because the twins + Jack kept us all running around!

 Then we finally got ready and I must say Jack looked so stinking cute! We got asked several times about his jacket and his sweater...what can I say I have one stylish little boy (who won't smile for pictures..stinker)!
Here is a half smile ...we will take it!

Then it was off to Ella's first birthday! A Winder Wonderland took over the ranch and it was so beautiful! Of course if you know the WO family, no details are ever left unnoticed. I have been to so many events at the ranch (of course including our wedding) and they always seem to transform it into a new world every time I come! It was great to catch up with Mandi and see how much sweet Ella bella has grown! Our babies are growing up too fast :(
 Once we arrived I tried to take a pic with our babies but Jack spotted the toy bin and was trying to make a bee line for them, because even if we have the same thing...they are so much better when they are someone elses toys, right?! ha!
 We walked over from the house and into a Winter Wonderland :)


 Birthday girl!

 We couldn't get Ella to join us, she was wayyy to busy trying to pull the glitter trees down :) ha
 Cupcake bar, yummy!
 The real bar, double yummy


 All this fun had one precious rosy cheeked baby all tuckered out! He slept the ENTIRE way to Houston, what a beautiful memory this weekend has left us. We are so blessed for all these friendships!I wish we could pull Austin just a tad closer!
