WOW what a glorious, fun weekend!!! A block party, an Easter egg hunt, a birthday party, TWO soccer games, and a dinner party all in sunny 80* weather – what more could you ask for?
We started Friday off with a big event part of the Tom Tom Founder’s Festival of Cville – a block party at McGuffy Art Center.
We met some friends for beer, food trucks and pizza
Matt and I hit up the dumpling truck, the kebab truck (a lamb/kebab/wrap) and the crabcake truck and shared them all 3 ways.
The noodles were a big hit!
Later we shared a pizza with our friends – half cheese and half avocado & feta. Mazen’s favorite food right now is pizza!
We walked home and settled in bed early because our Saturday started bright and early with an Easter egg hunt at our preschool for next fall!
We did a couple of practice rounds
Which went well…
But when it was time for the hunt Mazen was only interested in the slide and roller coaster toys
And he LOVED the apple he got at the end!
Our next stop was a birthday party for our good friend Dylan!!
My friend Jessica did such an amazing job with the Elmo theme. She is an incredible cupcake baker!
And had plenty of snacks to share
Happy birthday dear Dylan!
I had not one but TWO soccer games this weekend, so it was a really physically challenging one. I played all 90 minutes on Saturday (we were playing man down with no subs!) and a lot of the game on Sunday. Super hot and fun! Only the playoffs to go until we are done for the spring season. Sad!
Saturday evening we babysat our good friend Sylvia while her parents went to a wedding. A slumber party!
We had take-out pizza and homemade salad for dinner
And once the babies were asleep, Matt and I enjoyed some Manhattans on the porch
Sunday morning Sarah and John brought over a frittata as a thank you for breakfast. Bacon, artichoke, greens and cheese!
After grocery shopping and prep, I had my second soccer game, which left me with terrible blisters on both pinky toes! Too much in one weekend.
I also got to meet Alison of Daily Moves + Grooves who was in town for a University of Virginia visit and met me at my game to say hello!
And Sunday night we ended with a dinner party at our house. Karen joined us along with several friends!
We made burgers on the grill along with a cucumber + pepper salad and chips
And for dessert – chocolate almond coconut cheesecake!! I’m not sure which recipe The Cheesecake Queen (aka Karen) used for this one, but it was amazing!! Maybe she will share in the comments (wink wink Karen!)
We laughed until the sun set, and then I went to bed early with my feet propped up high : ) Too much soccer for the ole joints!
Happy Weekend friends!
