Weekend Recap

We had a busy weekend around here.  Our town had it's local carnival and festivities, among them...a town wide rummage sale.  So, I spent quite a bit of time, over the last month or two, going through the boxes of stuff around here and trying to simplify.  I'm not quite sure if I was successful at the simplifying, but we did get rid of quite a bit of stuff!  My inlaws came to play with our littles and keep them occupied during the sale...and I am SO thankful they did! 

Friday they took them to the beach in a neighboring town and later that evening we went to the carnival and car show on our downtown street.  The boys got to choose a ride to do, Levi chose the big slide and Silas chose a train ride. 

Both were happy with their choice, even though Levi said it was a little scary.  Saturday, I baked in the I forgot to apply sunscreen!  The boys played with grammy and papa and on their bikes and went to the parade in the evening.  Silas even did some riding without his training wheels on!

It was a blast and they are still talking about the tractors, semis, firetrucks, and go carts in the they came home with bags full of candy!  Sunday, after church, I made a new dish for was amazing and I whole heartedly recommend Crescent Chicken

I served it with's easy, minimal's a keeper...YUM!  Today I am on clean up duty from the long weekend.  Doing laundry, dishes and getting order back from the chaos.  I have a lot to do in the garage, but intend to stay out of there for the week.

For tonight's dinner, I took a lasagna out of the freezer...from my recent freezer cooking easy weeknight meal.  I pray you had a blessed weekend too! 

Blessings to you,

wow, no training wheels! I can't even get lucy to pedal...she gets so frustrated and stops. I'm looking forward to her being able to ride her little bike.

Silas has this list of things he wants to be when he "gets big like daddy" one of them just happens to be "ride a roadbike"--and ride in races like daddy...he has a BIG example, if you know what I mean and can already ride 4 miles like it is no problem. Good to see you here...I have referenced you a few times--Just today even!
