This was one of those weekends that you wish would never end. Spring finally showed its sunny face with 70+ temperatures and clear skies all weekend. We spent every possible moment we could out doors. We have spent a lot of time and money fixing up our back yard to make it a place where we would feel good about spending entire weekends and the perfect weather combined with family visiting from overseas and friends stopping by made all that effort well worth it. It’s pretty much our perfect backyard. Having my husbands parents here from Israel for a visit is a welcome luxury. Since they live so far away they love to spend as much one on one time with the girls as possible and since they are early risers that means I get to sleep in a little! And my husband and I get to go on dates. It’s almost like being on vacation. And to add to the fun Uncle Ben, my husbands brother came in for a few days from the west coast to see all of us.
It was a weekend of firsts for the girls they played in a sandbox for the first time, wore shorts and sandals for the first time this season. Sadly, the adorable little Saltwater sandals that I just ordered for the girls are quite a bit too large. This baby shoe sizing thing is kind of a mystery. They are currently wearing size four, so I got them size five to last through the summer, and the reviews said they run small. Who knows? It seems as though kids shoes are too big until they are too small. Just keep trying, kids have to have shoes. After a great day at home on Saturday, Sunday we ventured out for a fun day on the town. We visited a new park where the girls loved the sandbox, had a lovey brunch at a new restaurant and spent the afternoon with friends and family at their home by the river.
It was another great day.
Hurry next weekend, come quickly.
