Friday Steve and I are heading for a quick overnight at a resort nearby. I am excited to spend some time with the hubby. I think that one of the best gifts we can give our children is the example of a strong, loving marriage. So a night together is a must now and then. And a trip to the spa doesn't hurt either. ; )
Saturday we hope to return before bedtime as I think I will be missing my kiddos too much. I also hope to be home in time to throw in a couple loads of laundry and get organized because...
Sunday we are off again to Steve's family reunion. Steve is the baby of seven, and his siblings have recently decided it is time to begin a summer reunion tradition. As social as I am...kidding! But because we pass on any Christmas get-togethers now after Flynn's horrible sickness that led to an Emergency room visit on Christmas Day a few years ago, we like to attend the summer one.
So that is what our family will be doing this first weekend of August. I hope yours is happy and sunny and summer-like, whatever your plans may be! Thanks for visiting!
Off to Mass selfie last weekend...
followed by this beautiful sight when we got home.
My wonderful mother spent the night with us...and Sunday morning was spent outside. Shooting hoops, of course. : )
Steve takes great pride in bringing me home goodies from our local farmer's market...
with which he prepares delicious dishes like this cabbage salad complete with mandarin oranges and kiwi.
This little guy prefers pop tarts though. ; )
We ran some errands this week, and took my mom out to breakfast at the bakery. Where for some reason...hot chocolate tastes way better than it does at home.
Leaving you with this one of my little lady. Taking a stroll down to the mailbox on one of our many jammie days this summer.
