{This past weekend}

Time for another weekend wrap-up! We had a really busy, but oh so good weekend. I love those kind. We got to spend a lot of quality time with people that are dear to us. I am exhausted and already looking forward to the next weekend.

...this past weekend we woke up to the most radiant and beautiful sunrise on Friday! God is so good.

...this past weekend I took a selfie for the sake of joining in with Friday introductions. But then I completely forgot to do so. I have really been slacking on the gram lately. Totally unlike me. I guess I have been in a picture taking funk lately. I.must.snap.out.of.it.

...this past weekend we went to small group bible study. Only it wasn't so small. There were 18 kids and 13 adults.
...this past weekend we had such a wonderful time at said bible study. The night lasted until 2:00am. We are loving getting connected with friends from church.
...this past weekend we attended the Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo! It's a tradition for us. It was Nathan's 35th, my 20th and Mason's 6th. We had 18 people with us this time. I just love this tradition of ours and spending it with friends that are more like family.

...this past weekend Mason got to climb on bobcats and tractors just as he has for the last several years. It still brings a huge smile to his face.

...this past weekend we also visited the Midway while at the rodeo. I am pretty sure it's Mason's favorite part. He's a thrill-seeking little guy! He was bummed when he was too short for the rides that go upside down...I was relieved.

...this past weekend we ate at Railhead BBQ for the first time. It was amazing! We all loved it and agreed that we would be going back.
...this past weekend we had a lazy night at home after the rodeo. We were exhausted and couldn't even talk Mason into going for ice cream!
...this past weekend I did my normal Sunday morning routine...grocery shopping and donuts for my boys. I was so tired I almost didn't go.
...this past weekend we went to church. Mason got to sit with his friend during worship and he was so well behaved!

...this past weekend we bought bbq sack lunches after church to support the youth.
...this past weekend we had cub scouts and our Pinewood Derby race!
...this past weekend Mason's Pinewood derby car took first place in his age group. He won all four races. He took 2nd fastest out of the whole group {20+ cars). And he won some free races as well. He was ecstatic.

...this past weekend we cleaned and purged in Mason's room! 4 huge trashbags of donations and 1 bag of trash! That was a whoopin'! But glad it's done.

And that sums up our weekend! How was yours? What did you do?
