Just Another Summer Weekend

It was just another busy, crazy summer weekend! It seems like this summer is so full. We have multiple weddings, grad parties, birthdays, anniversaries, parades, and other typical summer activities.

Friday night we started our weekend. We watched "Old Fashioned". I liked the movie and thought it was a good movie to start some discussions about dating/courtship. 

Saturday was busy! We had a wedding shower and we got to bring the desserts for it! 

We made all mini desserts!

Then we headed off to a book signing at our local book store. We got to meet/see Susan May Warren, Melissa Tagg, and our local author, Gabrielle Meyer!

After that, we went to visit with my friend that I have known pretty much my whole life! It had been over 1 1/2 years since we had seen each other and it was such a blessing to see her (and her mom)! 

Sunday, we celebrated two of my nieces' birthdays and my nephew's 1st birthday. We went to the beach and enjoyed swimming, boating, tubing, and other water sports. After a busy day, we decided we would go to the new "Minions" movie with my nieces. We were supposed to be getting bad weather, but it hadn't started yet, so we went. About the time the movie started, we started getting weather alerts on our phones. About 30 minutes in, the tornado sirens went off. It went from 90 degrees to about 65 degrees in a matter of minutes. It rained very hard and was windy, but thankfully we were safe. Much of the surrounding areas lost trees, docks, boats, roofs, etc... Part of the road on the way home was flooded and we could barely see some of the time. I'm thankful that we made it safely. 

All in all, it was a great weekend and God kept us safe! Just another busy summer weekend!
