A little weekend recap

I just love summer weekends. I always seem to feel a bit more relaxed, and I love our lazy mornings. This weekend was really no different than most. Friday night the boys and I hung around the house, played legos and built a fort.

Saturday we headed to the pool for some swim time, even though it was a little chilly. Saturday night something happened that doesn't happen too often....I got all dressed up for a night out. We attended (and in “we” I mean my best friend and I) an event for a local charity. I love getting together in our community and helping those who need an extra hand. This partciular service helps those in our downtown community. Jon joined us after things slowed down at the restaurant, around 9:30, and we lingered in the gallery where the gala was held sipping wine and chatting with friends.

Sunday was our lazy morning. Breakfast with the kids and then off to grab some lattes at our favorite local coffee shop. Then, we did what old married couples do, we drove around and looked at houses. This used to be a regular activity on Sundays, but the boys get a little bored so we've eased up. In the evening we helped our friends daughter celebrate her third birthday. In my book this was a great weekend. How was yours?
