Dinner for a Young Lady

On Wednesday evening we had Christopher's parents over for dinner.

It was my mother-in-law's birthday, and I know she loves Italian food, so I planned an Italian main course. 

We started with snacks in the backyard:

We moved inside for rigatoni with sausage and fennelCaprese skewers and bread on the side:

Dessert was strawberry rhubarb pie with ice cream.

We had a really nice evening eating and visiting, and tonight we're headed to their place for dinner.  It's so nice to spend time with family, and this summer we have had many opportunities to get together with our loved ones.  Annnnnd, guess what we're doing tomorrow?!?!  More family time, and another birthday party!  #iloveit

Happy Friday!

What are your plans for the weekend?

Yum! That looks amazing! I could meal out of the snack spread alone! It's great that you get along with your in-laws so well. That seems somewhat rare! I get along with my MIL, too, although she does drive me a little crazy at times!! But overall we like to spend time with her, especially since she is a widow.

We had a pretty unplanned weekend. Our only plans were a playdate with another friend and her son who is 3 days older than Paul. We went to a coffee shop, then to a park and then capped it off with a stop at a bookstore. It was a really fun morning!
