We Are Fam-il-y

This weekend me, Kendall and the two dogs loaded up in my tiny Mazda3 and headed to hometown {stolen from AP} Ohio.  Now if you could, just for a moment, imagine me, Kendall, Casey & Chanel in the car, packed full of toys, clothes, sippy cups, a pack n play and a stroller ALONE.  That's right, Jimmy was out of town this weekend so I was the genius that thought traveling 30 minutes in this chaos was a good idea.  And you know what?  It was a good idea.

You see, my family fucking rocks.  Yep they do. 
Saturday we got there and it was GORGEOUS out.  Like one of those days where you say, "I wish every days weather was like THIS".  My mom lives in a quaint little town and just down the street are tons of little "pookie" shops {or so we call them}.  So we {and by we I mean Kendall} put on our Sunday's best, channeled our inner Madonna, and headed "downtown".

My mom and I picked up these cute peace sign tees {and wore them together on Sunday because we're cool like that}.
Don't you want one?  I know so cute.
Saturday night me and my 2 best girls decided to go out for margs & mexi.  Let's face it, that's the real reason I went to my parents for the weekend.  I kid, I kid.  But it was fantabulous.
And if margs & mexi weren't enough for one evening of fun, I stopped by Kroger and picked up these yummies.
Yes I did.
And just when I thought it couldn't get any better, Sunday was off the chain {in a mom way} too.  We got up bright and early and went to First Watch for breakfast.  It was a baseball cap kind of occasion but was so yummily worth it.

 We walked "downtown" to the park and had some fun.  You see my parents live in a really cool location.  Close to shops, restaurants, parks, you name it.  It was so nice to just WALK somewhere.  You don't get that living in timbucktoo.  Anyway, back to the park, it was so fun until a dad and his two very sick girls came and ruined all our fun.  Germs are gross.  But we had fun anyway.

And you know what made all the craziness of driving with two dogs a baby and a car full of shit worthwhile?  Moments like this.

and when my dad does this
And I am able to do things like blog and pee without interruption. 
Kendall and I weren't the only ones getting spoiled though.
Yeah and let's not forget that my mom makes "pup"puccinos for her dogs every weekend.  Your eyes do not deceive you, she makes dog cappuccinos for her dogs every weekend and this weekend they shared with my girls.
I know.
So yeah.  This weekend totally rocked my socks.  I'm thinking we may start spending every weekend with them.  I kid, I kid {maybe}.
