Weekend REwind

Finally we had some sunshine here. And, needless to say, we did not waste one single moment of it this weekend. Madaline was on the back deck, at 8:30 am sharp Saturday morning, digging in the sandbox.
And, before we knew it, the rest of the weekend got away from us. We visited with my Gram, Mads got better at pedaling her trike up and down our country road, watched our local fire department do a controlled burn exercise on the abandon house just next to us, swept the grass and winter crud off the back deck, realized our porch umbrella needs more water in the base (*hint* Daryl *hint*) before we can use it, baked some banana bread and butterfinger brownies, big family dinners, and some grocery shopping thrown in for good measure.

No wonder that by the time 7:30 rolled around last night we were both camped out on the couch like toads watching some old school Scooby Doo. So, that was my weekend. How was yours?

We had a great weekend full of shopping, lunch (with wine), redecorating the kids bathroom (took down the Christmas decorations....finally) and a family dinner cooked by Keith!

We had a pretty full weekend too. Saturday was awesome as we picked up the rest of our seedlings for the garden and then got the raised beds ready for planting while the kids ran around the yard and got squirted by the hose! I am looking forward to more sun. It has been rather elusive. :o(
