weekend happenings

Today was the most beautiful fall day that we've had yet - and Ben and I were stuck inside!  It was pretty frustrating to miss out on such a beautiful day, but we seem to have some kind of a cold going through our house.  It started with Ben over the weekend, then me last night, and now Jake.  Ben has seemed pretty much like himself today though, so I think that is a good sign.  Hopefully this is out of our house in a couple of days.  Until then it's hot tea, juice, and kleenex!

I really wanted to write all about our busy weekend last night, but I just wasn't up for it.  So here's a quick look at our eventful weekend...

Friday afternoon garage sale - pile of clothes for Ben for $5!

keeping occupied while Mom cooks breakfast for dinner Friday evening

biscuits, bacon and scrambled eggs with peppers (from our garden), onion and cheese

a quick trip to the playground after dinner

early Saturday morning we joined in local fun for National Hunting and Fishing Day
(that's Jake in the canoe)

first time fishing - we sat with friends and enjoyed the new experience
the worms were a big hit with the little guys - not so sure what Ben thought about the fish though


flowers for Jake's Grandma - in the car on our way to visit

The flowers are the only thing I took a picture of on Sunday, and I am not sure why.  I took my camera along, we were seeing family that we haven't seen in years, celebrating Grandma's 91st birthday, and the Kansas landscape was beautiful, but I have zero pics.  Guess we had such a good afternoon that taking pictures didn't even cross my mind.  We stopped at my Mom's for dinner on the way home (it was about half way in our three hour drive) and a quick stretch before we completed the rest of the drive.

The weekend flew by, but it was fun.  
I don't think we could have packed much more in it than we did! :)

Once again, I want to say how much I appreciate all the comments and emails I receive from all of you - old friends, new friends, and family members.  It's so nice to know you're out there.  Enjoy the rest of the week!


  1. I love your kitchen table and chairs!!
