This past weekend, my parents and Kristina and family came into town. It all started with the boys (Jim, Oscar and my dad) going to the Mavericks play off game Friday night. They had the best time and literally all three had a hoarse voice the next day from cheering so much. They got to see a great win so it made it all worth it.
Just look at those faces!
Saturday morning we all went out to watch Jacob's 9:00 baseball game and 11:00 soccer game. He had quite the cheering section at both. We also had some special friends come out to watch the soccer game, Dana, Laine and boys. Thanks again for coming guys!
One of Jacob's best buddies from his class, William, was on the team we played. They got a kick out of playing against each other. Here they are after the game.
This was Jacob's last soccer game of the season. So after the game, I took him to the end of season party at Chick-fil-a where they got their trophies.
Later that afternoon, Mom, Kristina and I left all six kiddos with the dads and Grandpa and went and treated ourselves to a Mother's Day pedicure, yogurt and new summer shoes. We had a fun afternoon of girl time and enjoyed being kid free for a few hours...three to be exact! ha! In the meantime, while watching the kids, the boys enjoyed getting out the good ole smoker and smoking a variety of meats for dinner. Ribs, pork tenderloin stuffed with green peppers and garlic, wrapped in bacon and seasoned chicken was on the menu. Along with pinto beans and cole slaw. We had a great feast.
Before we left for Mass Sunday morning we had to do the traditional pictures. Mommies and her babies!
What a difference a year can make. Cancer free and a nine month old baby! :-)
After Mass we headed to The Ballpark in Arlington to see the Rangers play the Yankees. We had a fun day at the ball game...sun, heat and all. :)
The boys...Jacob, Gabriel and Luke
This was Sarah's first Rangers game!
Oh and Friday at Jacob's school they honored the mothers- Muffins with Mom. After breakfast, they presented us with the crafts they made us. So sweet and special!
Whew! I don't know that we could have fit anything else into this weekend. But it was a fun time. Hope you all had a wonderful Mother's Day!
