Dinner at Chuys.
The M Lounge to watch my friend from high school's band.
And then some TCU joint, on our way out.
Everyone prettier-- with more money-- and all that jazz...
but I had a blast in the 20 minutes we were there.
I danced like an idiot...
And LAUGHED my butt off when a boy asked my sister to tell me that he "liked my dress"...
and then I let him know that I was old enough to be his mom--or babysitter?
I had a great birthday.
With 3 drinks...
And lots of love.
Saturday Maddox had a soccer game and pictures.
We met our family at Pizza Inn after the game to celebrate Beckham's birthday, for lunch.
I have worried a lot about not having a birthday party for Beckham.
It is definitely not in my nature to do that-- as I am usually hand-making the invitations and special ordering sassy cakes...
but I will say; our last-minute-party with our family was just perfect for B.
Our adventure to the Fort Worth Main Street Arts Festival, afterward, was icing on the cake.
Especially since my sister was in town to go with us...
And double-especially since we ran into a blast from my past-- my favorite guy from high school, Zane, and his beautiful wife and daughter. We spent an hour catching up and watching our loves climb the rock wall.
We were shocked to see Beckham sit so still for his face painting, and close his eyes or turn his head with each command from his painter.
The boys loved their faces...
And they were definitely a hit at the FW Food Park, where we had dinner.
The music was good.
The food was fantastic.
And we couldn't have asked for greater weather.
They had a blast playing air hockey...
And the boys sword fought with each other until I had to stop the fun.
and Beckham and I cleaned, cooked and prepared for the week.
Tomorrow my peanut officially turns two, and though he still seems so much younger than Maddox did at each phase... I am excited for his big day!
I love, love, love my boys ages right now.
Both of them.
I love that they can play together and are entertained by the same things.
Maddox is so sweet and loving and smart...
And B is talking so much, adores my existence-- and is Maddox's little shadow.
I love that when they get in trouble, they immediately begin taking up for the other one-- even if the punishment is due to one hurting the other.
Sometimes I actually put them in time-out together--
just because I know that the braver one (Beckham) is going to swing open the door and yell at me a stern 'no', and then Maddox is going to hug him when I remind him that I am the boss.
I love that they are best friends...
and I pray they always stay that way.
They are so fun and I really enjoy our days together.
Especially when Lance is off to enjoy them too.
Other than the stomach bug still following us like a spy...
We had a phenomenal weekend!
