I don't think I can accurately put into words what a wonderful weekend this was. We got much needed rest and family time.
Being in the out-of-doors hopefully cleared my indoor funk. I wasn't into or excited about much lately. I rediscovered my beloved camera, I forgot that in the spring/summer/fall I can use my telephoto lens, because I'm actually more than 5 feet away from people. Hallelujah! The light was amazing. And I got some favorite shots of my beloveds.
I did about a thousand loads of laundry, cleaned out drawers and switched all of the kids seasonal clothing! What a feat. My living room looked like an unorganized laundrymat for most of the weekend. I wish the house looked as though I've spent time on it. Unfortunately, it looks like we've been playing hard all weekend-- well it's an honest house!
We went up to Sioux Falls to our favorite Natural Food Co-op and stopped at the bread shop next door. We picked up ingredients to make sushi... I've never made it. But vegetarian sushi is so delicious, I just want to try it! Any tips before I embark?
On Sunday we ended our day with a picnic at the beautiful Oak Grove State Park. We all rode with Grandma Bonnie, ate our picnic dinner and took a little stroll. The kids (and Eric) were so tuckered out, we drove home pretty quickly as it was nearing bedtime (or the bewitching hour as it's called at our house).
More weekend photos and stories to come.
