In our home, Sundays are special. It is a day dedicated to family. Time that we set aside to nurture our relationships and grow together as one. We don't need television and there are no video games. On this particular Sunday the kids and I packed up a picnic (ok ok, we made a quick stop at Starbucks and loaded up on drinks and pastries) and headed out to watch Jon play soccer. We came home to work on the house, open our windows and pick up our toys. Jessica helped with laundry while the boys worked together to put together legos. We made up games with sidewalk chalk and balls. I think I was more excited than Jonas and Joshua. We ran in the front yard and played endless games of tag and walked across the street to try out our new toy boat.

And, as evening settled upon us we cooked up a feast. Together. Little neck clams, lobster and a fresh salad with local produce. Beets, tomatoes, roasted garlic, pickled red onions, hearts of palm and organic greens. Bedtime brought new books to start (Magic Tree House) and stories to tell. After our school cloths were laid out and teeth brushed little ones were tightly tucked into bed to rest the night away. Jon and I worked in the basement for a short period of time then headed up to enjoy a glass of wine and an episode (or two) of Breaking Bad.

Jon has been busy working away in the basement to make me a new work bench. He is so creative and handy! I love the work and dedication that he puts in for me and my hobbies. He truly is supportive of me on all my little adventures. I'm so excited to put away all my tools and get to work in my new "studio."

And, is anyone else watching Breaking Bad right now?? We can't get enough! We find ourselves wanting to watch just one more episode...every night.

  4. Oh lord, just wait until you get caught up on Breaking Bad! It only gets more intense. And love your photos as always :) I know another family that has Sunday as a "no electronics" day, such a great idea.

  5. @Caitlinaccept we kinda broke that no electronics rule once the kids went to bed. Breaking Bad is that addictive!!
