Weekend Highlights

Another Summer weekend in the books, and yet another one that flew by in the blink of an eye! 

My weekend highlights included:

~Heading up to Philly Friday afternoon since our friends who live in Minnesota were in town for their daughter's baptism

~Getting to meet the newest, cutest member of their adorable family:
~Played chase, hide-and-go-seek, and tickle war with their two boys (MG was a huge hit)

~Sushi dinner out with our friends and meeting up with the rest of our friends' brothers and significant others in Wayne afterwards
~Discovered a new, delicious drink

~Early Saturday morning with a stop by to see our friends again, play with the boys, and get a little bit more time with the baby (and so MG's parents could meet the baby, too)
I die watching MG with these two...
~Went to our oldest niece's lacrosse tournament and watched her team kick butt!
~My other SIL and her kids came to watch the game and hang out as well. Got some quality niece time in, which included hair braiding and headbands :)
~Tried to hide from the crazy heat (thank goodness for golf umbrellas!)

~Afternoon, post-game cool off in the pool
~Movie night! Kids went to see Pitch Perfect, guys went to see Ant Man, and the ladies went to see Magic Mike XXL!
~Snuck wine and Skinnygirl into the theater like we were teenagers 

~Enjoyed the man candy and the hotttttttt moves--was so fun seeing it with my SIL's
~Will never be able to look at a certain morning tv host the same way again

~Early on the road the next morning...Cooper made himself comfy!
~Finished my book--review coming!

~Made it home with little traffic, ran errands and grabbed a late lunch at Yard House

~Watched Ex Machina in the basement (the cool cool basement, on one of the hottest days of the year)--wasn't sure what to expect but it was good, and interesting!

Stayed inside as much as possible because it was SO freaking hot all day!
As you can tell, it was a jam-packed weekend! I'm so so so happy we got to see our friends who were in town, and all of the family time!

I hope your weekend was fun-filled and not sweat-filled :)
Linking up with these pretties today:
