Weekend Fun

Our original plans for the weekend?  Go to the mountains.  But then we just had a lot of fun opportunities to pop up in Charlotte, so we did a little bit of rearranging and had a great weekend!

Thursday evening my mother-in-law was in town, so we hosted at our house a Mothers Day cookout.  Ian, his younger brother, his mother and I sat on the screened porch and had burgers, baked beans, and coleslaw.  It was great catching up with her ... I lucked out in the mother-in-law department.

Friday after work, we went with friends to the Band of Horses show at The Fillmore.  We were close to the stage (as you can see in the below picture) and close to the bar.  So ... win-win.  :)  It turned into one of those nights where we went back home and sat around on our kitchen countertops with friends, talking until 1am. 

The next afternoon, Ian had some tickets for us to the Beer, Bourbon & BBQ festival in Charlotte.  We didn't stay for a very long time, but it was fun.  And just in case you are wondering, the Banana Bread beer that you see in the below photo was AWESOME.

Saturday evening we headed out to hang with our friends and celebrate a very special birthday girl.  One look around our group, and it's crazy to see how much has changed in the past year!

I think this photo really sums it all up.  Baby bottles and wine bottles.  :)

Hope you all had a wonderful Mothers Day -- I sure did and I will share some photos tomorrow!
