Weekend Moments - Devil's Den with Mamaw and Papaw

David's parents arrived into town Wednesday night, so this weekend was all about spending time with them before they had to head back out.

Mamaw picked up the kids after they got out of school on Friday.  The kids stayed the night, and the hubby and I took advantage of an impromptu date night.  We went to eat burgers that were voted the best in town.  Unfortunately, we had to disagree with that title.  After eating, we headed to Walmart and then home to binge watch some Netflix.

We left the house early Saturday morning to head to Devil's Den to enjoy some hiking and a picnic.  The weather was perfect.  Hallie and David stayed back for the first hike because she was set on playing on the playground.  While the rest of us hiked, we saw some turtles enjoying the weather while sun bathing.  We also saw some geese with cute little babies.  

After our little hike, we played and had some lunch.  We brought Hallie back some tadpoles from our previous hike.  Now this girl was interested, so we repeated the same hike again.  She could have stayed all day watching those tadpoles.  Currently, we have 5 tadpoles that we brought home in a fish bowl.  We've been researching what to feed them.  It will be interesting to see if they make it.   

After we finally convinced her to leave the tadpoles, she had fun getting her feet wet while crossing the small creek. 

Daddy found her a crawdad, and she was not impressed.  She really thought it was gross when I told her people eat them.  #iagreesister

After our second hike, we rested for a little bit and decided to head home.  Hubby and the kids stayed home while I went out to eat with a couple of gym girlfriends.  I was exhausted and wanted to stay home too, but I'm glad I went.  It was a small group of us, and we just chatted forever.  Once I made it home for the night, I crashed.

Sunday morning we attended church and then met up with Mamaw and Papaw for some lunch.  After lunch, the kids went to the movies with Mamaw and her friend, Diana.  I went home and binged watched some more Netflix while doing laundry, and hubby went to go see a sick family member.  Mamaw dropped off the kids after the movie, and then we were off to our church small group.   

It was a busy weekend, but that's not bad when you are spending time with family and friends.
