Weekend Fun!

I am still riding on a high from such a fun and busy weekend.  The weather finally felt like Summer and I couldn't wait to get outside and enjoy it.   Friday night for us was pretty low-key compared to Saturday and Sunday.  We grilled burgers out on our patio and then headed over to our next door neighbor's to enjoy a few drinks out on their new deck.
Saturday was 'Girls Night Out' with my book club friends and what a blast we had!  I don't know if we were all in an extra good mood because of the warm weather or just happy to be out downtown with the girls.  If you follow me on Twitter or Facebook, you may of had a good laugh or two at a few of the pictures I was posting. 

Our night included a show in Cleveland's Playhouse Theater District which was actually called "Girls Night: The Musical".  The play was about a touching and hilarious 'tell-it-like-it-is' look at the lives of a group of female friends.  It was the perfect show to see with a group of girlfriends.

Before the show, we all met at Bricco for a bite to eat and a few drinks.  Bricco was right in the heart of the Theater District and it was the perfect place tograb some dinner before the show.  And to also enjoy pretty drinks....

Even the restaurant had a certain vibe and energy to it.  All of the patrons were groups of women obviously with the same plans as us!

When you walked into the Theater, you were greeted by loud music and a bunch of screaming girls.  Boa's were being sold at a table for $5 which we couldn't pass up.

On Sunday, my sister's baby girl Katelyn was baptized.  I honestly think that Katelyn is probably the easiest going baby I have ever met.  Moms, this baby was sleeping through the night by four months and hasn't looked back.  I just love my precious niece Katelyn and can't tell you what a blessing it was to see her Baptized.  I don't think she made a peep during the entire ceremony.

Jillian was so good during the entire ceremony.  It was like she knew she needed to be quiet and be on her best behavior. 

I think she had enough of the Daddy paparazzi taking her picture though because this look pretty much said it all.  I can't look at this face without laughing!!!  So glad Jeff got it on camera, I think this one is heading to our photo wall eventually!

After the ceremony, Jillian had fun running around in and out of the church pews.  I was worn out chasing her!! 

My sweet family.

Immediately following the ceremony, we headed over to my Sister's house for a reception.    It was a fun day spent with all of my Sister's friends and family to celebrate Katelyn's special day. 

With so many babies in the family now, we thought it would be fun to get them all together for a picture.  I was impressed they stayed together this long!  Trying to pose four babies together is like herding cats into a box.

Jillian thought she would take advantage of the opportunity to give my sister's nephew a big smooch!

I had to rescue my baby girl and teach her a few lessons on making the first move. 

I hope you all had a great weekend as well!
