These past few weeks have been hectic to say the least.
With the start of school and sports and everything that comes with that, we have had little to no free time.
But now that August is winding down, our life is becoming a little less crazy.
Still crazy. Just less of it.
So last Saturday we had a family day. And it was wonderful!
My oldest daughter had been invited to a birthday party in Waynesville.
It doesn't look like much, this little place, but it is soooo yummy!
It's kind of like diner food. Nothing fancy, just honest and real goodness at it's best.
After that, we treated Faith to a cupcake at The Cake Diva.
Oh. My. Goodness.
First of all, they are huge! Faith chose a chocolate cupcake with buttercream icing. But the surprise is that they inject the buttercream into the middle of the cupcake!
And we're not talking about just a small squirt. It's A LOT of icing in the middle!
It was messy, and rich, and just perfection. We will definitely be getting more of those!!
We had just enough time for me to browse a couple antique stores before we picked Addy up. Just enough time, actually, for me to realize that I need to spend much more time in this little town.
Unfortunately for us, it was pretty hot that day and the girls were not much into walking around the village to see every home. We kind of made a quick stroll through and got some pictures, and are hoping to go back when the weather is a little cooler and also when the houses are open. (they were closed that day, but we have heard that they open them during the Holidays for special dates.)
And finally, we took the girls to the beach at Caesars Creek.
But I know how much the girls love it, so I suck it up and make believe that I too love the sand and waves.
And that's why this weekend, my husband and I are getting some quality alone time of our own to celebrate nine great years together! Grandparents are taking the kids and my husband has planned a fun and relaxing weekend for just the two of us to spend together.
So if you don't hear from me for a few days, assume I am having a fabulous time enjoying life with the people I love!
Hope you all have a great Labor Day Weekend and I'll see ya back here next week!
