a slow moving weekend



Things were moving slowly here this weekend. Alexi was on call working at the hospital. This was our first Saturday without hockey in months, as the season ended last week; baseball practice was rained out. We did some indoor camping. Eating at the campground (tables above made out of blocks - note Bicycle the bear has his own table too - were made to surprise me while I made lunch). Lots of playing, stories, and art. Interrupted here and there by a walk to the beach, and a little baking.

How about you? How was your weekend?

It sounds like a fun weekend was had by all including Bicycle the bear. That sure looks like a dandy camp lunch to me!

I love little 'playdays' when all you do is that, unpredictable and unplanned. Pure magic!!

I had a nice weekend up until 6 PM on Saturday when Mt. Redoubt erupted, and the winds carried ash all over Anchorage Alaska. What a mess! On Sunday I cleaned up and woke up on Monday morning to fresh snow, which cleaned the air and will make further cleanup much easier.

Love the glimpse of your weekend!

Love a slow moving weekend. Ours was slow too with the rain. Even did a bit of writing. Nice.

A very nice and relaxing weekend. We sometimes have indoor picnics at our place. I like these kind of weekends.

I, quite sadly, spent most of the weekend holed up in my bedroom with a killer headache. The girls - on the other hand- had a fabulous time reconnecting with daddy after a week away!

By the way, my girls have a gigantic tent in our basement that's set up as their playhouse. It's one of my favorite places in the house!

Out of sheer boredom, we took the bus DT to Pike Place market. We watched a guy solve a Rubik's cub with one hand while spinning a book on the other. Jonah was really impressed. We bought French pastries - a mirengue the size of his head for Jonah, and a pink eclair for Audrey.

We had a quiet weekend, which is what I need sometimes.

Your boys are just so cute. I love their mock picnic tables.
