Scenes From The Weekend

Hello There!

Hope you had a delightful weekend.
We had a lovely one.
We were planning on taking the girls camping as a 
'welcome summer surprise'
but . . . .

 it was another soggy one.

So we did the next best thing

 and camped in the backyard.

I experimented with pie crust again

and made our own version of pop tarts.
Mmmmm  . . .mmmm another keeper!

(If you ever hear me complain about my pudge curves,
kindly suggest I stop eating things for breakfast that involve pie crust and fried dough.)

I took advantage of that rainy weather,

 and accomplished some household tasks- like painting a room.

 I read . . .
 an entire book!
I may have stayed up WAY TOO late on Friday.

When the rain slowed down a bit

 we headed outside.
Josh was getting his bike ready for his first ride of the season.
The girls LOVE riding with him in the front yard.

It won't be too long before they have their own little bike.
Oh dear . . . 

I was able to get a wee bit of planting in. 

And then it started to rain again.

 "Mommy!  I can catch the rain!"

Oh the joy of a 2 year old.

It's my first Monday with no school.
I think I'll start another book.

Hope you have a joyful day!

I'm linking up with the sweet Carissa

miscellany monday at lowercase letters


  1. Sounds like a wonderful weekend! We got a little sandbox awning project done Saturday and then by Sunday decided we really need a bigger better add that to the list! And funny that y'all camped outside, I was just telling my husband we need to get a tent and have a backyard camp out sometime!

    P.S. LOVE my new aqua blooms. They came on Saturday and are beautiful! Thanks.

  2. You camped in the backyard? Of course you did - you and your family are too cute! Can't wait to camp with Wyatt in our backyard {when we have a house someday}. When are you going to reveal the "after" of that room you painted?


  3. woot! yay for no schedules and free time reading!!!
    i'm ALLLMOST there! :)
    strawberry jam making today, though!
    i think you and your hubby are about the most fun parents around!
    and those pie thingys look SOOOOO yummy, but you don't have anything to worry about in the weight department, my dear! you look fab!!!
    i love the expression on your little dolls face in the rain!
    so precious!
    have a wonderful week!

  4. can you believe that weather? we have 10 days of rain in the forecast! it's june!!! i'm dying for some nice weather.

    you guys are so fun to put up the tent in the house. i'm so not that fun!! your girls are lucky!

  5. HAHAHA! We both camped in the backyard. Great minds think alike! xo

  6. oh, but the pie crusts and fried dough are so good!!! please give us your recipe for the homemade kind - it looks delicious!!

  7. Your pop tarts look so yummy! I saw a recipe for them but I haven't tried them yet! I've always wanted to camp in my backyard {is that a pathetic want or what?}! Yay for painting and reading! Did you paint it lime green? That's my favorite color! I used to read books in one day all the time, but lately I've barely read anything at all. :)

  8. That sounds like SUCH a perfect weekend! We had crazy rain here in Pennsylvania this weekend also! It was funny because earlier in the week it had been 90 degrees and sunny : ) and then the weekend hit and it was 60 and pouring. Your pie crust pop tart sounds so incredibly heavenly. I would like to eat one right now : )

  9. Oh my goodness I love reading about your weekends! The rain was a bummer but how fun that you all set up camp in the backyard anyway!
    Did you paint the laundry room?? Flooring has finally been put down in the bathroom! Woot, woot!
    Gorgeous plants too!

  10. first thing i thought when i saw those pastries...looks like homeade pop tarts!! mmmmmm. love your weekends :) did you like that book?? i've never read it but i almost never like oprah's picks...this must have been a good one though??

    enjoy your summer!!! it's a great feeling of NO SCHOOL on monday, huh?? it's been summer for us for a couple of weeks, but i'm just now starting to feel it with our company being here and going out of town and stuff. yeah!!
