Weekend Wrap Up – September 9

Another busy weekend is under our belts. Is it just me or do you feel like once the Fall season starts everyone starts getting in a hurry to do stuff? Is this the beginning of the race toward the holidays? Maybe it’s just me – but I’m already ready to sloooooow things down a bit.

Saturday we had the annual MacDonald family reunion at the Phillies game. We started with some tailgating fun. One of the best things about being married is combining your family and friends.

I had all intentions of taking some great family shots – but when I pulled out my camera realized it didn’t have a memory card in it! ooops! #fail! So the only shots I have from the day were taken on my phone.

phillies tailgatingI’m not really a sports fan at all. Meaning I watch zero spots and couldn’t care less. I look at each sporting event I attend as a way to play dress up. And boy, do I love myself some sequins. So, I got to have fun in this red sequin Phillies tank. What really matters was the time spent with my new family. Ryan is the big brother. He has two kid brothers – 18-year-old twins. It’s nice to spend some time with them and his parents and meet more of his extended family.

It was a beautiful day with a spectacular sky.

On Sunday we went to our favorite local spots – Moondancer Winery. The wine isn’t spectacular but the views are beautiful and there’s always free live music. I always say yes to a view with live music!

Everyone else seems to be rushing right into Fall – only talking about pumpkin spice this or that, but I want to hold on to these warm days and green views a little bit longer.xoxo katie
