We woke up every morning without an alarm. Had a relaxing breakfast, read the paper, put on some grungy clothes and worked out in the yard. Worked hard - filled up four garbage cans and got my much neglected garden back in shape.
While we were gardening, we found some cool critters. The boys have an old aquarium that we used to capture and cage those cool critters. The boys had so much fun creating the perfect habitat and finding plenty of food for these guys.
I am sure the neighbors would have appreciated a little less screaming, but summer fun is hard to keep quiet!
We also made margaritas! Yummy, refreshing margaritas. They were awesome and perfect for a little refreshment on a summer evening.
It will be so awesome to crawl into bed tonight knowing that we spent this weekend just being a family. We talked, played, laughed and got every moment of joy out of this weekend we could manage. I wish every weekend could be just like this one!
One closing thought as this holiday weekend comes to an end. We are always aware that FREEDOM is not free...thank you to those who have served and those who are currently serving our country! Our blessings are many and we thank you for your courage and bravery and personal sacrifices so that we can live in this outstanding country! Happy Memorial Day to all!
