Scenes from our Weekend | William's Baptism

To say I'm exhausted might be an understatement today...we had a jam packed weekend to say the least.

It was a weekend filled with lots of family, food, and fun with the cousins!! My nephew, William, was baptized this weekend so we had all of my family in town plus all of my SIL's family.   The cousin's had so much fun playing together and it just gets cuter and cuter to watch them interact.  

Friday night we had the entire group over to our house for dinner.  It was great to have everyone together and we kept dinner really simple and celebrated my SIL's brother's birthday with ice cream cake and then a night out on the town.  


We bar hopped downtown from our house to World of Beer and Old Hickory Whiskey Bar.  

Saturday I seemed to be a tad bit sluggish, but we managed to pull it together and go meet family out at the beach for a little bit.  It was so much fun to watch Brody at the beach this time because he finally seemed to be comfortable with the sand and not too intimidated by the Gulf.  



We had to wrap up at the beach a little early and head to Brody's girlfriends first birthday party.  These two are so cute together and have been BFF's since they were born, so of course I have to call her his girlfriend.  They put on a show for all the adults as they played and Brody teased us all by acting like he was going to kiss her about 8 times.  


Again, having to leave the party a little early because we completely overbooked ourselves for the weekend; we wrapped up at the party to quickly go home and change for an American Cancer Society Charity Ball.  It's a western themed ball called Cattle Baron's Ball and I was thrilled to throw on an easy dress and boots rather than a formal gown.


The decorations were fantastic and the five open bars, sit down dinner, and jamming band weren't too bad either.  


Sunday was time for Baptism number 3 of the summer.  We had my nephew's in Miami in June, then Brody's and now William's.  He was a pro through the whole ceremony.  I love this photo of my Mom with all of us siblings and our children!  Such a special day.  




My brother and SIL put together the most perfect lunch party after church at my Mom's house and the kids got to play in the pool and on the swing.  This was Brody by the end of the afternoon....


It's weekends like this that make me appreciate family so much!! It's always wonderful to have everyone together and something fun to celebrate :)

If you follow me on Instagram {@homeofmalones}, you may have seen that I was guest posting for the weekend at a new account called @TheBloggerCloset.  Amanda just came up with the idea this week as a way for bloggers to share their OOTD's.  It's such a cute idea and I was honored to be the first guest to take over.  It was a great weekend for it because I felt like I had about 50 different outfit changes!  Follow along with us and sign up to take over the account yourself sometime too!!
