Our Weekend

This weekend was a bit less hectic than the last couple, but we still managed to enjoy lots of sunshine. Friday after school the kids and I headed to the apple tasting festival at the local nursery and then the kids had friends over while I went to pub knitting and had some ladies time. Saturday we did some much needed work around the yard, went to the park, and then the kids and I headed to Sauvie's Island for the Corn Cabaret at a local farm. It was pretty rad. We had to make our way through a corn maze (in the dark) to get to a circus tent. There were bonfires, music, fire dancers, and food. I wish we could have stayed longer, but Phoebe was exhausted and I had to ward off a potential meltdown. How was your weekend?

Pin It Now!


  1. Sounds like a fun weekend. Love the pics of your kiddos, they both look so grown up. Enjoy the week.

  2. Fun! We used to go to a great corn maze in Lubbock. Didn't even remember to look for one here. You've got me inspired to look right now. Thanks! :)

  3. My kids used to pull faces and when I look back at their photos it makes me smile, just like the photos of your kids having fun!
