Our Weekend

Gluten-free pancakes,
fresh green juice.
Playdates at the park, 
scooter rides, and strolls through the neighborhood.
Some morning yoga,
mama-only trips to the gym,
and some snippets of reading and knitting here and there.
A birthday party, seed planting,
and friends over for a popcorn movie night at our house.

A trip to a soaking pool where Finn
learned to swim!
He has been on the verge for a long time,
but finally felt ready to set aside the water wings
and give it a go.
He had 2 very proud parents!
A celebratory trip out for Ethiopian food was
most certainly in order.

A full morning was spent taking down Phoebe's crib
(she now is on Finn's bottom bunk----
what a big girl!).
We did some major reorganizing and purging,
and even found room for a reading nook,
and I am oh-so-happy with the result!

A very full and productive weekend.

How was yours?

Joining in with Amanda from The Habit of Being.
