weekend goodness

A 1 year old birthday and warm weather, that's what the weekend brought for us.
On Saturday my cousin had a "Dr Seuss" themed birthday party for his son and the second we drove up I told my husband "I can't wait to take pictures", lucky for me they asked if I would be their photographer for the day (I took their wedding pictures a few years ago).
Sunday was the perfect day for eating out, going to the park and grocery shopping.
Babe had so much fun that the second we put him in the cart he passed out.

We ended the weekend perfectly with my 3rd Pinterest Challenge, Strawberry Champagne. It's such a simple process and I can't believe I didn't try it sooner.
For 2 flutes:
Puree approximately 8 to 10 strawberries (remove the leaves, duh) and 1 to 2 teaspoons sugar (I used 1, and wish I would have used 2) .
Fill half of each glass with puree and the other half with Champagne. BTW my husband informed me I cannot call it Champagne if it's not officially from Champagne, France. Is that true.
Garnish rim of glass with a Strawberry and enjoy!
 You can see my other Pinterest Challenge's here (Doily Dream Catcher) and here ( a dress to a top)
Hope you all had an amazing weekend!
