Our Weekend

:: Our Weekend :: 

It is now Sunday night and the weekend has flown by as it always does. Those precious hours as a family are my favorite time of the week. All the hustle and bustle of the week is over and it is finally time to disconnect from the world and reconnect with my family. We talk about work, school, and home. We share little tidbits from the week that got lost along the way. Mostly, we just enjoy the company of each other. It is NOT always idyllic and peaceful but it is real family time. Happy moments and moments when we all drive each other crazy. 

Our weekend, 

* Friday night dinner and then quiet time playing and even sneaking in one of our favorite shows, Martha Speaks

* Saturday morning ballet time and then breakfast 

* a visit from a childhood friend. We went to school together from about 1st grade until 12th grade. 

*baking and crafting with the girls. A cherry and almond galette & making foldable doll houses. 

* homemade pizza and movie night with my parents at our place. We watched Finding Nemo ( a personal favorite) 

* catching up with Garrison Keillor. We are going to see him later this spring! 

* Sunday morning trip to Sugarloaf Mountain. The whole family hiked up a moderate to hard trail to the summit (elevation 1228). What a view! I am very proud of our little hikers. Not a complaint and my oldest told me that she really did love the outdoors. 

* riding along the back roads to home 

* Sunday School and Mass 

* And finally, a relaxing evening getting ready for the week ahead.
