Scenes From The Weekend

Happy Monday!

Hope ya'll had a wonderful weekend!
Ours was simple and slow . . .
and it was lovely.

 On Friday, the girls and I headed to A&W, loaded up on root beer freezes

 and played at the park.

Since the weather was behaving like summer
 I was able to play in the garden for a bit.

The girls have been begging for play- dough
and as much as I dislike the mess, I'm trying to say yes more this summer.

 I should say yes to play dough more often.
Hours of sweet joy making various play dough meals.

Plus the girls cleaned up the mess.

Saturday was filled with homebody relaxation.
A few mazes

A little bread making

A little VBS decorations

On Sunday,
I had fun plans for Josh

but by the time we got home from buying his Father's Day present
(a kayak- weeeeeee)
the weather turned stormy.

So we decided to play on the lake another day.

And spent the rest of the day relaxing.

It was delightful.

This is a busy week for us-
VBS in the AM and swim lessons in the PM.

It's gonna be a good one!

Have yourself a marvelous Monday!


  1. oh, i hear ya!
    we have VBS every night and i teach the preschool and kindergarteners...PRAY FOR ME!
    there was 16 kiddos in there last night and there will be MORE tonight! PRECIOUS JEWELS!
    so glad to hear that i'm not the only one with a love/hate relationship with play doh. HATE to love it. ;)
    hope your week is grand, dearie! that first pic of your girls kills me! so very sweet!
    and i totally cannot wait to rest...:)

  2. Beautiful weekend as usual!
    I once earned the nickname "play-doh nazi" because I didnt let my girls mix the colors. :) I have since softened and realized that play-doh is cheap and I can just buy more! Ha!
    Gorgeous flowers too my friend!
    Our VBS isn't until the end of July every year :(
    I pray your week is great and stress-free as possible in all the craziness!
