easter weekend, good & bad

this weekend was full of highs and lows, and i'm not just talking about the weather.  
(our pretty front yard)
i am very sad to say my sweet, sweet grandmother passed away this morning.  about a week ago, she had a stroke and hasn't been the same since.  we are very sad to lose her but we are glad she and her husband are back together in heaven and watching over us.  
friday night, we had a cook out at our house where this little guy stole the show.  per usual.


moi, colton, jessie, dad.

this little man is my nephew but it is extremely surprising how much alike we already are.  for example, i have a strong hatred towards the feel of grass.  this picture is the prime example that we share this hatred. colton had the perfect stance to avoid touching the grass at all costs.

and this little nugget has five teeth. 

have you seen a cuter fam?

saturday morning began with the easter egg hunt in louisville and then we went to lexington for the opening weekend of KEENELAND! this is johns dad and his lovely gf, beth.

keeneland was packed and really really made me want to go shopping! all the amazing dresses these days make me feel like i need to win the lottery to have everything i saw. 

the main reason we went to keeneland though was to watch john's dad's horse race!!  her name is gold rush girl and she is absolutely beautiful.  unfortunately she didn't win, but she looked great anyway. after all, it doesn't matter what you score, it's all about what you wore... right??

how sweet is the moment i captured with colton and john's dad?  we are so blessed that our families can be as close as we are. i love it. my sisters son and my fiancés father. <3

the ladies man. 

my man. i can't believe it's almost just 6 months until we say i do. 

happy easter!  this little guy and i love each other. thanks to his aunt, he learned how to scream sing at the top of his lungs.  i call it singing, others call is shouting.

speaking of screaming...

colton was terrrrrified of the easter bunny. hahahahahhah

me & mi madre. ain't she a beaut?
we had an incredible brunch in cincinnati at the metropolitan club. one of my favorite traditions.  

in other bad news, my brother in law accidentally hit my car while he was backing out of the driveway. accidents happen. but taylor - the next time you hit my car, please make sure its totaled.  :)

i hope you all had a wonderful easter weekend.  

what'd you do?
