A Perfectly Good Weekend

I figured it was about time for an update.  It's been rather busy here the past few months with work, homeschooling and a very curious little boy.  We now have a freakishly talented climber in our family (see evidence of such cutie below).  I'm about to invest in some repelling equipment so he can safely lower himself from the precarious situations he puts himself in.  I've also been picking up some extra hours to help out during a slow period for Brian's business, so that eats up any extra free time I may have been able to eek out of a day... and that's OK most days.  You do what you have to do to make it as a family.

But, this week was fabulous.  I only worked one day and the weather was superb.  This weekend alone was so much fun.  We spent a lot of time playing.  Speaking of playing, I'm a bit obsessed with Instagram the past few days, as evidenced by all my pictures in this post.  It's been fun capturing everyday events with a fun little twist using my phone.  I don't always have my camera nearby, but I always have my phone in my pocket. 

Well, enough of that rabbit trail.  Without further ado, here are a few pictures capturing our fun weekend:

Practicing some climbing skills

Swinging a bunch and playing at least 30 games of Hi Ho Cheerio!  (Complete with princess attire.)

Enjoying the beautiful Irises and Poppies.

A lovely Sunday picnic lunch.

A hike at a local wetlands

Just like big brother
Taking a rest on the walkway
And to top it off we stopped for ice cream to cool us down afterward.  I just cherish these sweet moments with my family.  I feel completely and utterly blessed tonight.

Hope your weekend was full of wonderful too!
