To say it was a busy weekend would be an understatement. BUT it was a GREAT weekend filled with lots of memories with family and friends, so I wouldn’t have it any other way!
After doing a few hours of work on Friday morning, I took the rest of the day off to get prepared for the weekend. Meaning baking cupcakes, shopping and cleaning. But of course, I had to get in a nice run first. Love these views of downtown!
After that, I found time for a pedicure. The massage felt so good!
Said cupcakes I baked. I made banana cupcakes because FW loves banana and the plan was for him to have his first cupcake that weekend 🙂
That night, B and I ordered sushi takeout. I had a great veggie roll, seaweed salad, and some sashimi – tuna and mackerel.
And then we had to stay up and watch the Cavs game. I don’t usually stay up ’till midnight anymore, but I HAD to watch … they finally won one! Now to win 3 more …
Saturday morning also started with a run. I got in 5.89 miles before meeting B and FW for some grocery shopping.
We headed to the West Side Market to get some groceries for the week, plus supplies for Sunday. Sunday we had plans to celebrate FW’s baptism AND birthday and we were going to be having a make-your-own sandwich station.
On the way home, we came across this great new mural. I love it!
Then it was time for Nicole’s backyard wedding celebration! I didn’t get any pics of the bride and groom sadly, but here’s FW and I all ready to go!
We left the festivities a little early because my parents and my mom’s cousin were in town! We met them for dinner at Masthead. Pizza and beers.
Sunday morning started early- FW got baptized!
I felt so lucky to have my parents in town to celebrate. And I know FW loved it too.
One of my college roommates just happened to be driving through Cleveland on Sunday, too so we got to see her!
FW had his first taste of cupcake. He looooved the frosting!
B’s mom made us a bear cake – it was so cute and tasty!
FW also got to hang out in the sandbox. At first he wasn’t too sure about it, but after a few minutes, he started to really enjoy it.
By the end of the afternoon, everyone was pooped. Me included. It was a long day!
We were all pretty tired, but content after a great weekend of family and celebrations. A perfect summer weekend!
Some questions for you:
- Was it hot where you were this weekend? It was in the 80s here!
- Who are you rooting for in the NBA finals?
One thought on “A Weekend with a Wedding, Birthday and Baptism”
Definitely a busy weekend for you! I loved seeing all of your photos – it’s always great to spend time with family, especially for important occasions!
