The Creative Princess: Weekend Wrap-up 6

Weekend Wrap-up 6

I absolutely LOVE this picture!  Daddy and his girls, it's just precious!

Mads did not have school on Friday so we decided to take the girls to one of our state parks {Little Blue} by the lake and have a weenie roast.  We LOVE doing this, it is like camping but we come home instead.  HA!  We usually stay for a few hours but this time hubby had to be at work later in the evening so we did not stay as long.
I am sorry for all the funky lines in this, it is hard to get a panoramic of moving water!

All of the spillways are fully open and flowing FAST!  We have had a lot of rain just to the north so to help prevent flooding they open the spillways.  It is just beautiful!
Hubs got the fire going as the girls and I got everything else set up.  MG helped gather some sticks, Mads was freaked by the bugs.  lol
After just a few minutes it was time to get cookin'!  I LOVE weenie roasts!  There really is no better food this time of year.
As we were eating MG found a caterpillar, it was her new friend.  He stayed near her for a while then went to Mads side of the table and totally petrified her.  HAHA!
Hello friend!  Doesn't it look like he is smiling?  He was a very happy caterpillar.

After dinner, we made our way back to the water to play a bit more.  It was tough getting the girls to leave, they just love it there.  Who can blame them?  It is beautiful!
We actually like to go camping here from time to time.  It has never been too full of people and everyone just keeps to themselves, it is really very peacefull.

Saturday the girls wanted doughnuts for breakfast so we got up and headed to the doughnut shop.  After that we went to a few garage sales then headed to Walmart to pick up things for lunch.  Later that evening the girls decided to spend the night with their grandma.  John and I took advantage of the time and went to Joplin to pick up a few craft supplies and have dinner.  ALONE!  I don't think we have done that in about 3 or 4 years!  If we have I don't remember, which means we need to do that more often!

Sunday I was able to get a few projects done before the girls came home, that was nice.  Both girls decided they wanted to stay home and help daddy in the yard while I went to church.  It was a really good, low key, weekend.

Next weekend is going to be another INSANE one!  Coming up we have, a pie auction, a prom (our nieces last...awww.  Gotta go get pics.), a delivery to make nearly 2 hours away, and a few other things.  Did I mention all of that was on the same day?  Yeah!  So...who is volunteering to come keep me sane?  Oh and lets not forget MOTHER'S DAY!

I hope you all have a fabulous week!!

Much love,
Brandi
