my weekend in photos.

After what seemed like a month straight of dreary and rainy days, seeing sunlight, contrasting shadows, and the vibrant pink petals on my dry(ish) sidewalks gave me some extra pep for my step.

Since Fridays have officially been claimed by baseball, our weekend dinner with our neighbors got bumped to Saturday. The kids were closing their eyes while we hid Easter eggs for them to find. So cute, right?

The gang's all here. It was weather perfection, and we love sharing our weekends with these people.

Sunday morning we made a game time decision to do church at home. It was our first warm morning, so we got to enjoy our tea/coffee from our back porch while gettin' our Jesus on via AirPlay on the outside tube. All the while the kids self-entertained without any major fights or tears breaking out. I was feeling all the happy feelings.



Our neighborhood had an egg hunt on Sunday afternoon - we showed up in less than our Easter best, and were happy to see Annabelle there, too. :)

We also had Owen's first game of the season with the Sharks.  The team didn't fair so well, but it was fun to be back on the fields to watch! 



I really liked this weekend. You?

life::an outtake.


There are some days that when life requires you unload the dishwasher for what seems like the zillionth night in a row, you immediately "dirty" that clean wine glass you just pulled out to finish the job. Happy Thursday!

life::an outtake.


I watched as he read his "C's" as "O's" in his 3rd row of letters. My heart broke a little inside with each letter misread, and shattered completely into tiny pieces of mom guilt when he couldn't see that letters were even displayed on the screen once shrunk small enough. Eye exams are not a familiarity from my past, but I'm afraid they have officially become a norm in our house. He got his Daddy's eyes, the poor soul. (Thankfully, Daddy chose to get Lasik 10 years ago on his -7.0 eyes.) Cause my Owen just went from no glasses to -2.0 and -2.25 as a first grader. And according to the optometrist, (and affirmed by family history), this is only the beginning for him.

Bad luck or not, he sure looked cute testing out alllll the frames at Target. Excited to get his in next week!
