As I mentioned in my Friday Favorites, I gave myself a long weekend by taking PTO. I got a lot accomplished on Thursday evening, so I was able to enjoy my Friday a little more than I anticipated. I went out to lunch at The Shack, and it was really good. I have gone there for breakfast before and my second time did not disappoint. It worked out well, because it is located close to my car dealership. One of the main reasons I took off Friday was to catch up on things at home, and an oil change was at the top of my list. Luckily, the process was painless and they even ran my car through the wash! The afternoon ended with a movie, Independence Day: Resurgence. It was really good! If you are a fan of the first one, then you will definitely appreciate the newest installment of the story. They brought back some of the same actors/actresses which was neat, although I feel like they could have included a few more. The story was pretty good, packed with action, with an opening at the end to continue the story to another movie. Needless to say, if they did do that, I definitely would go see it!
Saturday morning I headed to my parents for my dad's big birthday party. It went so great! It started at lunch time and went well past dinner. I helped finish the set up once I got there, and then just enjoyed the party. We ended the night with pizza from my dad's favorite place and some major clean up. So worth it, though! Since I don't want to make this post too long, I will recap the party in full tomorrow.
We continued the celebration with a family breakfast in the morning before we all left. We had my dad's favorite cinnamon rolls, with bacon, eggs and fruit. After breakfast, we all packed up and after getting in a little more Jack time, we all went out separate ways. Seriously, how precious is he?
It was a really great weekend, filled with laughter and lots of family time. Now on to Monday...
Linking up with Biana.
