The Weekend

This weekend found us doing many things we love to do together. We went to a flea market first thing Saturday morning (scored some more vintage Pyrex) and then headed out to go geocaching ...

While the boys hunted for the cache, Spenser collected a dandelion bouquet. She found the biggest and brightest dandelions for her mother.

Another cache led us to this local park. It was gorgeous. After logging our cache, the boys decided to wade through the water to this big rock.

They jumped.

They built dams. And they fell in the water 9,999 times.


The four boys all received a young tree to plant in honor of Earth Day/Arbor Day. Since we already have so many trees on our property, we decided to plant them on the banks of a creek along our local walking path. Their survival rate is much higher here.


And just yesterday I had to run into town. I am realizing that my vintage sheet stash is running dangerously low, so I had to just go peek to see what my options were. Glad I did. I scored the above stack of sheets. These will become dresses and wraparound skirts.

The two on the left are Amy Coe crib sheets. I bought them with the intention of making some beach pants and shorts for Sawyer. Now I am thinking I should use them for his crib. They are in near perfect condition. The pillowcase on the right might become a skirt or a bag. Only time will tell...

Loved the pictures of the kids. So sweet.
