long lovely weekend.
I think the long holiday weekend finally made me feel like we are back into the swing of summer. I love long weekends with my husband home - and knowing A might have a longish recovery adjustment time we didn't make any big plans. A weekend together was what we needed, and we spent it well.
Time in the kitchen for canning, baking and making.
Time in the garden caring for the jungle.
Visiting new parks in the mornings before the heat of the day. Followed by cold treats.
LEGO playdates with friends on the deck when it got hot, fan blowing, icy pitchers of water, and red white and blue cookies to decorate.
Re-arranging rooms and playing lots of games when the heat (and allergies) drove us inside.
And some (not loud) sparks and sparkle for little boys who like that kind of excitement.
Who doesn't like a little sparkle?
I know I do.
