Weekend Recap: Farwell to Greenridge Edition

We had a busy, fun weekend!!  We packed it full with a girl's night, a party, and some family time!  Here's a look at what we had going on:


When I was little, my family used to always call me Queen Robyn.  I tend to air a tad on the bossy side, so that's what earned me the nickname.  When I saw this filter on SnapChat, I sent it to my sister to remind her of my title.  ;)

Friday night I had a girl's night planned with some of my favorite ladies!  We went to dinner at a cute burger place downtown and then tried to take some group shots in the alley ways next to the building.  A lot of laughs (and not so great pics) followed.


Saturday we were hosting a fun Avengers party at my mom's house and my sister and Ben came in town for it.  First up?  Grocery shopping at Publix - haha.  The trip was made a little sweeter by getting to drive my sister's convertible - haha.

We had a ton of fun playing with all of the dress up stuff!

Thor and Captain America

Making some pretty awesome mac-n-cheese!

Cooper went over to Grammy and Pop's house for nap (to get him away from the crazy party planning in the hopes that he would get a good nap), and he got to ride a tractor with Uncle Bryan when he got there!

The kids loved all of the dress-up stuff!  Hulk, Iron Man, and Thor!

The onion-ring master!

My handsome hubby!

The blond to my brunette and then yin to my yang!  I love my sister!

You know how they say you marry someone with the same personality as one of your parents?  Not true for me.  I married a man with the same personality as my sister!

My KK's!


We were up laaaate Saturday night.  Even the kids.  So Sunday morning was rough.  But we made it out the door in time for church and to get this cute picture!

After church, we met my mom and sister over at Greenridge.  I've blogged about it before, but here's the long story short: my parents divorced when I was very young.  My mom built a house for her and me and my sister to live in.  We moved out when I was in middle school, but my mom kept the house.  When I was in college, I moved back in by myself, and then Matt and I lived there the first 3ish years we were married.  The house has served it's purpose, and it's time to let another family have it.  My mom has sold it and will be closing on it this week, so we went to take a last walk around and to take some pictures.

In our old living room!

On our old front porch.

We took these pictures in 1991, so we took them again today - 25 years later.

After we got done at Greenridge, we all packed up to go to lunch together.  More about this to come - but Ben and Aunt Laura will be with us here all summer!  I am so excited for these kids to get to spend so much time together!

After lunch, we headed home for nap.  Once everyone was settled and sleeping (or movie watching for LL), I set out solo for a trip to Sam's and Publix.  We were literally out of almost everything, so I filled up the back of The Beast!  I was exhausted!

We spent the rest of Sunday doing chores and playing outside!  Here's to a good week - only 3 more weeks left of school!!

Cooper's 1st T-Ball Game

Around February, Matt and I talked and decided to sign Cooper up for tball this year.  Cooper is just such an active little boy, and we just felt that this was something that he would really love to do!  As we see his personality develop more and more, I really can see him being the type of kid that just thrives and does so much better when he is in sports to help him get some energy out.  

We signed him up in February, but he didn't start any practices or anything until late March.  This past Monday, he had his first game!  He is on the Giants, and one of his best little friends from school is even on his team!

All dressed up and ready to go!

I could just eat him up!

Getting ready for his game!

I loved seeing them all line up for warm-ups!

Cooper is #9!

Great throw!

Daddy is helping coach!

The game hadn't started yet, but he had his stance going!  I just love it!

Focused and ready to go!

Cooper's turn to bat!

He may not be a strong batter (yet), but this boy is a beast when it comes to running!

Made it to 1st base with Daddy!  Look at that smile!

One of his favorite parts of tball?  Playing in the dirt and chalk lines.  "Wook, Mommy!"

Running to 2nd!

Running home!

High 5's at the end of the game!

This was a great kick-off to a fun tball season!
