Well That Was Wet

Our weekend did not exactly go as planned to say the least! We did get our solar heating system done for the pool, but haven't really had the chance to try it out yet because it rained ALL weekend.

Friday evening we had friends come over with their kids and trailer for the weekend, as the guys were in a ball tournament! I threw together a pasta dish for dinner and then we decided swimming was necessary after we waited for our food to settle a bit first! My mom was over to watch Noah for us, because the first ball game for our team wasn't until 9:45 PM. So M put Noah down and we headed to the park around 9 for the dance and beer tent. I did enjoy a few somersby's before the game and then switched to palm Bays in my tumbler at the park. B ended up taking her kids home earlier, so I stuck around and was texting her updates. I had to tell her about the dinosaur she was missing, at which she thought I was seeing things at this point, so I took a picture because sure enough some guy dressed up as a dinosaur:

The guys lost her game, but we stayed after for a beer and then walked home where we ran into more friends heading to the park just after 11. So we stood out front and chatted with people, enjoyed watching the "drunk crawlers" as some were beyond walking at this point. It makes for good entertainment! Then we went outback and sat around chatting, drinking and snacking - oh and
zapping bugs!! It was 2 AM before we knew it and this mama was surprised she lasted that long!! 

Saturday morning we had a big strawberry and waffle breakfast, which was amazing and then got ready for the parade. M was in it of course, so B, the kids and I headed down. The rain held off for the most part, with a few sprinkles, but it was manageable without an umbrella! However we got home just in time and then the crazy rain started! D was out in the shop getting it ready to entertain down there, because we were going to need it!! When we got back we went and helped tidy it a bit too. 

M got home and sure enough Noah was ready for a nap, which I regret doing soo early, and then they cancelled the whole ball tournament. We decided to still invite everyone over anyways, we had planned for a potluck BBQ and we were bound and bent to have fun! The drinks were cracked, people were showing up and fun was had - rain or shine. 

Noah went through a few outfit changes because of the rain, but he was in pretty good spirits for all the people over, teething, and a short nap!

We made the best of that weather! The kids still swam, we played kan-jam and washers. It was fun. We bbq'd and enjoyed lots of food and more drinks! I failed at picture taking!! 

Everyone headed home by 6:00 I would say, so we headed inside with B, D and the kids and relaxed before watching the soccer game! K came over for a visit afterwards too, which is always nice! We had a few good laughs and maybe a spilled drink lol.

This collage pretty much sums up the whole weekend! 

Sunday morning we had the fireman's breakfast and shortly after that our company left. M got home around 1 from helping out and we had one lazy day. The rain was still coming down. It hasn't rained like this on the long weekend in years!! They ended up cancelling the fireworks too! 

These two sure did get lots of attention this weekend! The kids loved them!! Apparently it was exhausting: 

So there you have our very wet weekend. I did watch The Longest Ride last night, which was another Nicholas Sparks movie! They never disappoint!

This weekend will always be so special to us! Crazy to think 2 years ago our lives changed forever in the best way possible - we found out we were expecting after 4 long years of infertility! We are so blessed with this little man: 

Today we are enjoying some family time and packing for the cottage!! So blogging will likely be scarce again, unless I find some time to schedule some posts, as I still haven't covered Noah's first birthday! 

Hope everyone had a great weekend!!

The rain is crazy this year, thankfully it stopped for our weekend but sounds and looks like you guys made the best of it! Watching drunk people is the funniest and it makes it better that they have no clue they are giving you a show!
