Whew. What a weekend. So the visit with the inlaws was fine. It was civil and that's kind of the best I can say about it. I don't have pics of the girls playing at the kids' play thing on Saturday as Hubby took them while I got some other things ready but they had a good time, went to their friends' house for swimming, hotdogs and cake. All was well. Yesterday was a bit more of the same. We took the girls to see Brave first thing in the morning. Great movie! Some scene were a little intense and the girls covered their eyes (they're kind of wusses though. lol) but it was a great "girl power" kind of movie. I highly recommend it...one of the better Disney Pixar flicks I've seen recently.
Here are some pics from the weekend.

Some details on the cake. Each "scoop" is a different kind of cake (strawberry, white and chocolate) and instead of frosting, they were dipped in chocolate to create a smoother look (milk chocolate for the chocolate cake and white chocolate for the other two). The "whipped cream" is buttercream frosting and the "bananas" are rice krispy treats. So yummy! Maddie loved it and that's what mattered most. As for today, my gym bag is packed and I'm ready to go. Heading there straight after work. Very excited to get ready.
Short post today but gotta get workin'. Monday DEMotivator:
