Weekend Fun

This weekend had me longing, dreaming and pinning for summer.
The weather was gorgeous (as it has been for the past 5 weeks)
We have been so spoiled in California this Spring.
The highlight of our weekend was celebrating Kevin's birthday!
Coffee & Presents in bed!
Cinammon Rolls for breakfast:
 Celebrating Daddy:
Trying out the new sandwich shop in town. I got a BBQ chicken sandwich. SO good.

 Cheering on Kate at her softball Game:
 Then it was date night! Kevin wanted to ride our bikes downtown for drinks & dinner.
(Also....LOVE my cropped jeans. Got them here)

SO much fun.
We are declaring this Summer the summer of bike riding. And we want to ride our bikes into town as much as possible.
After dinner, we picked up a movie (Silver Lining Playbook) and some gelato.
We also watched The Office Series Finale on Saturday night. I had Open House for School on Thursday Night, so didn't watch it then.
I thought the last episode was perfect. I laughed, I cried.
Great way to end it. (Unlike the Seinfled Series Finale...lamest finale in TV history and Friends was the BEST finale in TV history) 
The Office has been such a great show. I will miss watching it on Thursday nights.

Sunday was spent going to church, a little gardening...
And, then spending the afternoon by the pool.
It was such a great weekend and I am counting down the days until the lazy days of summer. It can't come soon enough!
