I’ve been taking time to rest this past week:
My mom has been in town for almost a week.
She has been playing with Addie and cleaning and driving us around.
It has been wonderful.
I have been spending more time on the couch . . . resting . . . finally.
I’ve been taking time to organize this past week:
A pile of things and two bags of clothes to Goodwill.
Baby clothes separated by size and placed neatly in drawers.
I’ve been taking time to for fun this past week:
The Barn with cousins.
A movie with my daughter.
Donuts and coffee.
Seeing the 30,000 + Monarch Butterflies at Monarch Grove.
Visiting the beach with the fam for some sunshine and fresh air.
We found a beautiful spot between some lovely, twisted trees.
The kids climbed trees and dug in the sand. Ellery slept on a blanket in the sand. We watched the wave.
It is my new favorite “secret” beach spot.
I want to take some “official” family photos there, so I played around with a few locations and snapped some quick shots just for fun!
Just give her sand and a bucket and she is thrilled. In fact, just the sand would be enough!
This boy was a tree climbing machine!
This man. Mmmm mmmmm.
I instructed my mom on the manual setting of my camera and she did a pretty good job!
Family! So thankful they live close by.
Again. Love him.
What a lovely week and weekend it was.
