Weekend Recap....

S is home!!!! Thanks to mom and dad for putting up with Z and I all week :) It was a wonderful week but it was nice to come home and try to get back into a routine. It was nice to come home on the weekend and have S for two whole days (Z was glued to him). The weekend was the perfect balance of family, summer and chores :)

Saturday was a gorgeous day on the east coast ;) We drove home, played with Z and then packed it up to go to the beach! Every year we try to have a picnic dinner on the beach. This ritual has changed a bit with the addition of Z but it is still wonderful. The weather was perfect, the beach was gorgeous and Z was so excited to be there. We were able to distract Z long enough to set up the tent and then we went straight for the water.

It was FREEZING but that did not stop Z, he went right in :) We splashed in the waves, built sand castles, ate our picnic dinner, sipped our wine and enjoyed the scene. I even got a quiet moment when S took Z for a walk. I LOVE THE BEACH! On the way home we stopped for ice was the perfect summer evening.

On Sunday, S and I painted the dining room. I had originally wanted red but many people urged us to go another way. We picked hydrangea blue and I love it ;) It was so nice to get it all done in one day (this was possible with S home to help and Z actually napping). After painting we cooked all the produce from our CSA and had a very delicious dinner. Have you ever baked Kale? It was so yummy :) We drizzled it with olive oil, sprinkled some Parmesan cheese on top and baked it at 350. SOOOO Good!

Thanks for a great weekend S and Z :) Only 4 more months before S travels and dad get ready :)

We're ready!

We really enjoyed having you and Z for the week. It is really quiet around here without our "little guy", but we look forward to the next two weeks when we will be together at the lake!
