The weekend was the best that we've had in awhile. As I write, I feel hesitant to say that it was perfect, but honestly it was darn close. The combination of family time, outside time, yard work and play was perfectly balanced. Saturday my husband encouraged me to come outside with him and the kids. I resisted for some unknown reason and then went out, because I knew it would make him happy. Well, I'm horrible about sitting still so, I weeded two flower beds, while the kids played and he stained the cabinets for our kitchen. Yes, the kitchen remodel is still in progress. It's going well, but there's nothing exciting to report so, that's why I haven't mentioned it lately.
Anyway....weeding in the sunshine was glorious and then I headed to a baby shower, complete with my dirty toes from weeding. After the baby shower, we piled into the car, went for a drive, saw the most perfect fields of daffodils and stopped at our favorite ice cream spot.
I didn't take many photos this weekend, but I feel like when we're so busy living, it's okay to forget the camera once in awhile. Yes, I'd love to have all of the special moments, like Paisley and Judah eating their first ice cream cones of the year documented perfectly, but sometimes that just doesn't happen. And so I write and I'm so grateful for this little online journal of special, ordinary life.
