one of those weekends

This was one of those weekends that we had nothing planned or scheduled. Nothing. at. all. I can't tell you when than last happened. To some it might be boring or mundane but to us it was truly heavenly.
What did we do? spent a lot of time outside playing in the yard, and Grace and I got to work planting. I really should say she did most of the planting in pots, she is becoming quite the little gardener. I taught her about annuals and perennials, and we also talked about how rewarding it is to work with our hands, and see something grow. Mr. Will did what he dearly loves to do, follow Daddy around as his 'assistant' and helper. He also practiced his newest thing...his somersault/cartwheel. At least that what it looks like to me, and he smiles every time he does one.

Saturday night was an impromptu barbecue get together with many of our neighbors, I can't remember if I've mentioned that we have the BEST neighbors ever! A great time was had by all...happy kids and happy moms and dads. Looking forward to more weekends like these and it seems like Summer will be here soon. :)

That sounds like the best weekend ever. Those are the ones I love the most. I love being at home and enjoying my surroundings. We were out of the house yesterday at 11 am and didn't return until 5 pm.

Have a wonderful week!

Awwwww, I will live vicariously through your post, since that was the absolute opposite of my weekend. I so enjoy a weekend where nothing is on the calendar!

Grace looks like quite the gardner. And Will... quite the acrobat. Beautiful snapshots of your peaceful weekend together!
