The Weekend

We had a busy but fun weekend
Saturday we drove out to Palm Springs to have lunch with my father in law at one of of our favorite mexican restaurants, Las Casuelas.
Afterwards we went back to his house for a little while and then headed home to get the girls down for a nap because as soon as they woke up we would be driving an hour away to go to our friends house for a BBQ.
We stayed out past our bedtimes but had a lot of fun and the girls had a blast playing with all of the other little kids there.
(Sorry I don't have any pics from Saturday I didn't feel like lugging my camera around with me all day) 

Sunday morning started out with the girls cuddled in our bed followed by pancakes for breakfast
Where Brooklyn took way to long to finish eating because she was mesmerized by a new favorite show.

The girls have been watching the new  'Fresh Beat Band' every moment that we have been home since it was on Friday.

Of course there was playing with toys throughout the morning as well.

Then while they took their naps I headed out to do some shopping.
I wanted to get their Valentine's goodies taken care of so I wouldn't have to worry about them last minute
I made a quick stop at In N Out to pick up some lunch and then got back to my shopping.

On my way home I stopped to pick up the mail where I found my necklace I had just ordered a few days before from Noonday.

Isn't it beautiful???
I ordered the embira seed necklace but have a few others on my wishlist, they have some really cute bracelets and how cool is this?
Be sure to check out the site your purchases help struggling artisans all over the world.

When I got home the girls were still napping but after they got up from their naps and had a quick snack 

they headed outside to play for awhile.

They played out back and in the front yard until dinner time.

Now they are all cleaned up smelling delicious and all cuddly watching cartoons before bedtime.
I'm just a little sad the weekend has already come to an end especially because the weather is supposed to cool back down so there probably will not be as much playing outside for the next week atleast.
It was fun while it lasted!

Cute necklace! Cute happy girls! We're supposed to have mid-70's all week and the boys are excited to play outside. I'm excited to ditch the sweaters for a bit!
