weekends are for taking advantage of.

yes they are.

for soaking up, taking it all in.

enjoying it.

we enjoyed our long weekend as a family with friends. let me share it with you. If you follow me on Instagram you've already seen these. (@photosbyandrea)

Friday night we attended a 30th anniversary party for some friends. My husband sang a special first dance song for them. We had a really fun night with friends.


Ava and her friend danced their little hearts out. It was so much fun watching them. 


Saturday we attended our first summer BBQ! I'm sure there will be many more in our summer. 

It was a perfect day for swimming and hanging out with friends. 


 Sunday after church we headed to the McCormick Ranch Railroad park after church. If you live locally in Phoenix you must hit this place up often. It's located in Scottsdale. They have train rides for the kids, a carousel, park for the kids to play. There's a train museum too, and top it all off at the local ice cream shop on site at the end of the day. We brought a picnic lunch and then rode the trains.




love my girl.


sharing some ice cream at the end of our day.

ava's was pink & bubble gum of coarse.

Monday was a relaxing day. We slept in, all of us. Yay!

had a big breakfast. 


Monday, I worked on some crafting projects for our home. 

i pulled out my sewing machine for the first time in months. 

felt good to be creating again. 


we marinated this pork roast all night, shredded it the next day and let it soak in sauce. yum. 

i made crispy shoe string fries and corn on the cob for our memorial day meal.

it was good. 

we finished off the day with a family movie night. 

thankful for weekends and family time together. 

thankful for our freedom and those who fight for it.

how did you spend your long weekend?
