Weekend Recap

Happy Monday y'all! This weekend went way too fast. Bill and I were watching TV last night and he saw a commercial that had a dog and his owner walking on a mountain trail and he said "I just want to move to Colorado and never have to put Dora on a leash again." Bless his heart. I think we all are starting this week a little tired. This is what we were up to:
Bill put this planter outside our kitchen window about 8 months ago. It is a lovely little space to look at while washing the never ending pile of dishes. I've never had climbing roses before and it's been a bit of a learning curve, but they are being very patient with me and are happily blooming :) Also, as you can see it rained A LOT this weekend....blah...

Isn't our garage lovely? Ha! It's actually "clean" here so try and be impressed. What I'm really trying to show you is my new ride for the kids and me. This way we can zip to the beach without taking the car! In the words of Will, the boys think it's "super cool" :) Bill gave me a choice of new bedding for our room or a bike and trailer. What would you have picked?
During Jack's naptimes I worked on some crafting while Will played with buttons. This seems like such a simple thing to play with but it's always a huge hit and we get to chit-chat the whole time. Love love love it!
Mr. Jack was sporting some CHA-RA-ZAH-Y hair this weekend. Part of me wants to cut it all off and honor the military vibe in this house but the other part of me loves the messy bedhead and the wannabe surfer look. What to do, what to do.
These are my favorite pictures of the weekend. This was our front porch Sunday morning. Very wet and drippy but the air was warm and I enjoyed taking a few minutes to watch the rain and peek in on the baby birds in our hanging planters :) Our little morning dove and her fledglings will get their own post in a week or so. 
And I'll end our weekend recap with the now traditional evening wrestling matches. I'm always so thankful when Bill roughhouses with them, they need every second of it. I'm telling ya both of these boys need to be in full contact sports!

What did y'all do this weekend? Hopefully your weather was a little sunnier than ours! Cheers to a glorious week! I have some fun posts for you and hopefully a tutorial for some scrappy fabric owls :)


  1. The boys look like they love wrestling time! I love having a window above the sink, it makes work all the better. We finally have some rain which we needed. Lovely weekend!

  2. goodmorning my dear!

    love all of this. especially the raininess of it all. i miss the humidity and real rain. your bike rocks and your roses and birdfeeders are so perfect. can't wait to see your doves, go with the surfer look while you can and wrestling never ends...just gets louder.

    have a lovely!

  3. Looks like a productive yet relaxing weekend! :) Just love the pictures. So glad you guys were all able to just be together and enjoy time as a family :)

    Love your new ride :)

  4. Ko, climbing roses are the easiest of roses to grow and don't really need a whole lot of attention. I am not sure where you live, but if there is a lot of humidity make sure you watch for blackspot and all roses love a little bone meal in their soil.
    We had a little rain here yesterday, but really need a lot more.
    Have a great Monday!

  5. I love Jack's beach boy hair :-) We had a busy weekend planned and then some of the plans fell through so it was nice and quiet which was nice since Jeff is on travel again this week.

    p.s. I love the new bike and trailer!

  6. The vote is in and I think Jack's hair will be sticking around for a bit. Will on the other hand must get a quick cut, he can't rock the look very well :)

    Thank you Tracy for the tip about the roses. They were here when we moved in and eeeeek the have black spots all over the leaves! Picking up some spray this weekend.

    Ivey, thanks for the heads up that the wrestling only gets louder...once the weather warms up I think I'm going to ban them to the trampoline!

    Y'all are wonderful :)
