Busy Weekend, Happy Family

This weekend was packed full of all different kinds of fun.  I love weekends like that.  I’ve been having a rough start to my school year for the past two weeks, so my weekends have been just the right kind of fun and relaxation that I’ve needed.  Friday night, we headed to downtown Windermere for dinner at the food trucks.  This is just half of the food trucks that were there.

I’m happy to report we found them all. Then came Sunday. And we moved…
