Weekend Getaway

We had a great weekend out at my folks. We got to visit our favorite winery, have a wonderful kid-free lunch, and stock up on some yummy wine while my folks took the kids to the park and a picnic and then the splash park...(thanks Mama and Daddy!) and that was just Friday! Saturday we went to a little street fair/market in Prosser. The kids got to do this.....

Max picked the pirate all by himself:)

They were having a chalk street art festival thingy and it was fun to watch the artists at work. This is Mina's favorite

and here is Max's

and then they got to do this...

After the market we grabbed a picknic lunch and headed here

Terra Blanca winery in Benton City. It was so beautiful!

The cute honey's

Thank you family for such a great weekend getaway, I love you!

Birthday post:)

Saturday we had a nice family day:) We started out at SBC for some coffee and yummy treats!
The kids loved that!

and they loved riding on the "merry go round" at the mall!

For the evening we celebrated Auntie Lyssa's birthday at Azteca.
How old are you now Alyssa?
and did you get some good stuff?
(sorry for the picture quality, I had some lighting issues. Like blinding Sun DIRECTLY in my face:) awww, cute couple
and couple of friends

and couple of family members:)

The kids didn't understand why there wasn't cake and ice cream at the birthday party, so we went to Baskin Robbins after for a treat:)

Max had a slight wardrobe malfunction!
Good times! Happy birthday Auntie Lyssa!
