This {Birthday} Weekend:

* My Friday morning started out at Ikea.


They have cute little succulents!
So much cute stuff to look around at.
{Fun Fact: My husband would rather eat his own toenails than shop at IKEA. True story.}


Also: Why are their Sweedish meatballs SO dang good?

*Grocery shopping afterwards.


This sight makes me HAPPY!
Watermelon season is back!!!!!

* Somehow I ended up with a carload of girlies on Friday afternoon and when you have a carload of girlies...treats are necessary.


McDonalds cones for the WIN!

* We celebrated Carson's birthday on Friday night.

Dinner at the restaurant of his choice: The Olive Garden.
{Why have their prices gotten so high? It is not a cheap place to take your family.  Just sayin. Also: I'm sounding like my Dad now 😂}


He was SO elated because so many family members were able to come and celebrate with us!


It was a fun night for sure and Carson left feeling loved AND stuffed from all the breadsticks.


* Saturday morning birthday festivities!



How and WHY do teenage kids want Crocs again?!?
I'm baffled, but whatever.

Carson's only wish for his birthday party this year was to take a couple of friends to Big Surf - a waterpark in Tempe.


We had never been before and so it was FUN for everyone!


We grilled burgers at our house afterwards {another one of Carson's requests!}...


...and ended the evening with cake and ice-cream.
{Another fun fact: When Carson was little, he used to call 'yellow' cake.....'blonde' cake and so it's now 'blonde' cake for the rest of our lives because 😻😻😻}.


Cannot believe he is officially a teenager.
I have TWO teenagers now.
What the heck is going on?!?

We are SO proud of Cars and the sweet kid he is.

* Churchey-church on Sunday.
I set my alarm for early to get the good stuff goin in the crockpots for Cinco de Mayo dinner!  

I wish I'd have taken pics cause it was a feast! But I didn't.

We had some fun friends over for dinner to help us celebrate and we had such a a great time!


We also discovered that Joe can't do a cartwheel.
But neither can I because I'd for sure pee my pants even trying.
