Our weekend started with a super-fun and much needed (by me!) playdate with some of our best friends on Friday morning. Of course, I have no pictures of that. :( The kids were both so tired after some good ol' playing and while Charlotte napped that afternoon, Harrison & I watched a movie and rested up for our fun evening ahead. Friday night we had dinner at the home of some of our good friends. Ryan & Sarah made such a yummy meal & even had s'mores for the kids for dessert! They've been such a blessing to both of us -- Ryan is in Ph.D school with Matt.....and I've been so blessed to find a friend in Sarah that truly understands how much work Ph.D school is! :)
Saturday morning, we started our day at Rick's for some yummy breakfast! After filling our bellies, we headed to see what the Farmer's Market had to offer -- sadly, it was mostly onions & lettuce right now...and a few flowers. Not so much luck there. The rest of our day was spent just mostly being lazy. Matt studied for his class on Sunday and we watch TV and rested. Perfect day. :)
Sunday afternoon and Monday we spent working in the yard and around the house. The kids loved every minute of playing outside and were worn out both nights. And, so so dirty. :) The signs of a good summer day: tired & dirty.
But, it wasn't all work that weekend. We did some good grilling and even made our first homemade ice cream of the summer. I was pretty pleased with how our low-fat, fresh strawberry ice cream turned out, and the kids like it too!
This is my often-view of Charlotte. Ha! She spends a lot of her time literally at my feet when I'm cooking or cleaning up after dinner.
We ended our weekend with a family walk. Matt and I used to walk for hours before we had kids & we've kept on doing it as our family has grown. This year both kids are finally big enough to ride their bikes as we walk. Yay!
This guy has a need for speed. He just can't go fast enough on his bike, it scares me a little sometimes. But, at the same time he's cautious too. And tough.
Sweet girl. She opted for the scooter this particular night.
Monday night was also a first for Charlotte -- she slept in big girl jammies. Her first night without footies. *Sniff, sniff* And, yes she's still taking a bottle. We'll be tackling that in the next couple of weeks. And, just to keep it real -- a picture of me in my workout clothes, no makeup, after our walk. :)
