This Weekend

Overall, this past weekend was really great.  The best part is that it was just a normal weekend.  We didn’t do anything that “special,” but just had a really nice time.  On Friday night we had pizza night with Auntie Ann.  Saturday morning we had breakfast and Penelope had a nap, then we all went hiking at Moss Rock Preserve.  The kids had a blast and didn’t want to leave, but we eventually convinced them it was time to go and we grabbed some great Mexican food on the way home.  Then everyone took a nap.

This morning we got up early and got ready for church.  Auntie Ann joined us.  Then after church we got really brave and all went to the parish picnic after church.  We had some barbecue and the kids jumped in the bouncy houses.  There was also cotton candy, but for some reason the kids absolutely wouldn’t eat it.  It was bizarre.  We kept telling them how great it was but they’d have nothing to do with it.  We came home, and while the kids napped, Auntie Ann and I ran some errands and went to the grocery store.  Then the normal weekend laundry, cleaning, and cooking.  I’m sitting here with most of my home to do list done, slightly sore from yesterday’s hike, and can’t help but hope that we have many, many more weekends like this ahead of us.  I’m especially looking forward to the long weekend next weekend. 

I’ll leave you with a sneak peek of the photos from our hike yesterday, with more to come later this week. . . .
