Our Weekend in a Nutshell


We enthusiastically enjoyed the summer sunshine this weekend. We took a road trip Saturday afternoon and had our first picnic of the season - rather late for us, but the setting certainly made it worth the wait. Under a willow tree, with ponds, ducks and geese nearby, on heritage land. So serene and beautiful. Hubby and Elle particularly enjoyed disrupting that peace by making loud honking sounds from blades of grass - my ears were rather grateful Elle didn't get the hang of it :) It was a great afternoon, with apple orchards in full apple blossom bloom, cones of gelato, and spotting a huge eagle's nest. 


On Sunday, the girls and I headed for a hike and local monument visit. It was so much fun to see the girls horsing around, thoroughly enjoying each other and their surroundings.

  2. I always enjoy your "weekend in a nutshell" posts! I may not comment most of the time (LOL shame on me!) but I truly like reading what's going on in your neck of the woods!

  3. Lovely photos! I particularly like the one of your daughters looking at each other. It looks like the weekend was relaxing, fun and noisy. There's always someone to break the peace.......

    1. It's fun getting a few of those candid photos - before the "camera smile" gets plastered on. I think they were silently daring each other to tickle the other at the time :)
