Weekending

It was a beautiful and relaxing weekend. The sun shined down and blessed us with warm weather. It was the kind of weather that makes you not want to come inside after a long day of play, just so you can soak up every last second. We made a trip to the beach, keeping busy by constructing a huge sand castle and combing tide pools for shells lucky enough to decorate it. We dined on barbecued shish kabobs, summer beer and homemade hummus from the farmers market. We enjoyed a quiet night watching the movie “The Way” with Martin Sheen and Emilio Estevez. It was a simply stated movie, but I loved it (currently available on netflix streaming). Yesterday, our neighbor showed us the above treasures he found in his back yard. Four beautiful Robin’s eggs. We were very careful not to disturb them, we don’t want any mad Mamas. I was also sure to send a prayer of thank you to all those who served, and their families, who have allowed me to have this fantastic weekend with my family. I recognize their sacrifice and will be eternally grateful. Thank you.

    I just ordered the Way for my boss, who has added the walk to his bucket list. I’ve heard it’s a great movie and now will have to check it out. Love the nest, so beautiful and you truly captured the moment :)
