OMG! It is absolutely amazing how much a family can get done when there is a ton of sumlight (I so love summer time!) I had a wild burr to organize the bathroom cabinet (raided the local DollarTree for a bunch of baskets and such). So on Friday, totally redid our upstairs bathroom and got it all organized. Then, on Saturday, we worked in the yard, cleaned up the house and planted our new apple tree (given for free by a local nursery). It was a generous gift that gives in return. All we have to do is take apples that come from the tree to the local food pantry when the tree starts to bear fruit. A very cool deal. Then we hit the Culture Fest in our hometown and walked around for a good portion of the afternoon. Afterwards, we had a Tr3asures BBQ with our fire pit, funny faces, a s'mores. While the boys cleaned up, I read Warm Bodies ( a wonderful and fantastic book so far!).
Sunday gave us a bunch at a beautiful manor and a trip to the butterfly pavillion. Some more family time and then some small chores around the house rounded up the weekend.
Summer offers so much more time to actually get out and do things. The sun is warm upon the day, the light brightens the sky for so much ln
Here are the posts that I will keep of all of our family fun moments. We try to have them a lot and really enjoy our time together (esp. since we know that little ones become big so quickly).
