I LOVED our weekend!

I had the MOST lovely weekend,
With those I love the MOST !! 
It worked out that I was off Friday, Saturday & Sunday and it was perfect timing! I got the boys and Steve tickets to Brian Regan {our favorite comic ever} for Christmas and the show was last Saturday in San Diego! I didn't want to ask for the day off because I am already so spoiled with great shifts and days. So when I saw that I was off I was thrilled!! The Carter men decided to golf early in the day, then have dinner before seeing the show. I was hoping to be able to meet up with them for just some of the fun! But since I was off I drove down with Steve Saturday morning and dropped him at the golf course and off I went to spend the day with my favorite girl.....
My daughter in law Ashlyn Marie~ 
We went to lunch, got manicures and pedicures, sat out by our hotel pool with magazines and cocktails and then met the boys for dinner at a great new spot  "Jimmy's Famous"  We had the BEST darn burgers and chatted all about the day and their golf game. Then off they went to the show and us girls curled up under blankets and watched a movie in their cozy house.
I went back to the hotel and was just falling asleep when they all came in laughing and rehashing the show! They had a BLAST! Steve said the next morning his stomach was sore from laughing. Is there anything better??? I think not!! 

The next morning Ashlyn invited us over for a yummy breakfast of homemade biscuits with jam and fruit.  Travis checked the tide and since it was low we headed out for a long walk down the cliffs with the pups. It was the most beautiful day !! I wish I had taken my camera but I was able to grab a couple pics with my phone. There is something about this one of Steve and the boys that I just love!
Probably because I know that there will never be happier moments for him than those he spends with the kids.  
And I know just how he feels!

I feel so blessed that our kids like spending time with us, and that we enjoy each others company. I have always dreamed of one day having a daughter to love and do girlie stuff with, but even in my wildest dreams I never imagined it would make me this happy!

We are blessed!

It sounds like you had a fairy tale weekend. I really love the pictures and I sure do miss the beach. I'm so happy you have the daughter that you've always dreamed of, it's wonderful when dreams come true. I also hope you get another one someday soon (daughter, that is). Brian Regan is one of our favorites too. He has been to St. George a few times and we try to get tickets when he's here, although they sell out quickly. Our kids can quote him word for word, it's pretty funny. I know what you mean about being thankful that your kids enjoy spending time with you. There is nothing we enjoy more than our time spent with our family. Thanks for sharing your magical weekend, here's wishing you many, many more.
