phew. this weekend: quick and full and sunny and fun.
did i say full?
this weekend started friday
as much as our littliest girl
loves to carry her sheepskin pillow everywhere and at all times
even at a parade.
best family movie ever: hugo
with popcorn on the best family couch ever: we all fit
i fear our antique clock collection might fall victim to the girls’ automaton dreams
an early run (well, more like a walk and talk) with birds and sun
and my two road pals
the borrowing of a mini donut maker
gluten and gluten-free
totally amazing. i used muffin mix, pancake mix
and cream cheese for frosting
inspired by the amazing Joy in this post
all before the big game
the big shirt, the big hat
little sister, big sister cheering her on
so good to see her
in spotlight, at bat, on base
then it was off to a birthday
the best sort
brothers celebrated at a campsite, at a lake
fishing and s’mores and friends
and then it was a fundraiser
for community fields on our island
for if we build them, they will play, right?
I’m quite sure this island raises money like no other
hundreds of islanders
silent auction, live auction
still has me loving the idea of someday
getting certified as an auctioneer
i’d wear a vintage suit, swing cattle and antiques at estates
oh. some. day.
thousands and thousands and thousands raised
both the parent and the school board member in me
have fingers crossed the mark was hit
there were laughs, even better laughs, amazing bbq
and a hip hop show to end it all.
there was a baby on my back for five hours of fundraising
but the good husband took the ladies home in the end
just in time for The Good Husbands to take stage
sunday gave us more donuts, more sunshine
and sunday our baby girl
well on her way to three
so into her pacifier
we tried to tell her she can only have it when she sleeps.
six hours of crying.
daddy and betty out sailing,
lucy at a birthday party
so many tears for the littlest one
so before five pm
I gave her a pacifier
a tuck in beside a pile of pacifiers
I found hidden beneath a stuffed friend.
we love what we love.
i just don’t have it in me to make her leave it behind.
not in the week i turn 36.
yup. there’s bigger things to think about.
wishing you a wonderful week.
How was your weekend?
