a spring weekend

Well hello! How was your weekend? Ours began in a dramatic fashion, almost requiring stitches as a result of one of my boys asking the other to drop a kitten on his head and the other obliging. I realized I am not able to handle the sight of blood belonging to my children very well.

We spent almost all of Saturday outside and enjoyed our first outdoor meal of the season at a neighbor's home. In general we did some lounging and play and had just the right balance of unstructured time and activities.

Wishing you a good start to your week.

Ouch, that must have hurt (the boy, not the kitty). I'm glad no stitches on the head were required though! One of the hardest experiences as a parent is to stand by our children calmly and reassuringly when they're physically hurt or very sick and require emergency care.

Ouch!! Sounds like a truly painful start to the weekend!

The water looks awesome with the sun reflecting off it, Lecia :o)

Welcome to parenthood of boys. We have been there, so I can totally feel for you.

Sometimes it is hard to keep up with the antics of children. One year long ago we were having our deck redone. The stairway to the yard was removed. In the blink of an eye one of the DDs pushed the other into the yard for "fun". Broken arm. Another time, same girls, they were roughhousing with some furniture: broken tooth requiring removal and an implant!!! Eeks!!

The outdoor dining looks wonderful!!! Ron and I were standing on our snow free deck Sunday afternoon and commenting on how soon we will be able to sit outside! Hooray!!! xoxo

I never handled stitches too well myself. I was holding one of mine while the doctor stitched him up and woke up on the floor!
And had one son who had 147 stitches at different times in his young life. Always in the wrong place at the wrong time! (I'd probably be investigated by the child welfare people if this happened now!)

It never ceases to amaze me what crazy things kids think of...especially the potentially dangerous things!

Your pictures are fantastic as usual. I can't wait for flowers to start to appear here!

Those treats look delicious! I don't handle my kids' blood well, either, but it has now happened enough for me to be a bit better. At least I don't visibly panic and whimper!
Beautiful Spring weekend. Your photos have just made me take a much needed deep breath!
