Weekending and gratitude

This weekend started when Mike took all the boys on their very first "mancation" Friday morning. It was just the wee girlies and me for 3 whole days. I realized how busy the boys keep little Miss Fiona Rosy. That little girl is just super busy all the time. We spent Friday at the park with friends, then over to the health food store to pick up raw milk, then after a dinner of raspberry pancakes we walked over to Whole Foods to get diapers and found a new super cute hat for Nuala.
Saturday we hit the farmer's market and visited with Papa for a bit and then spent the evening with Audrey and D at a splash pad at an outdoor mall, had ice cream and listened to live music.
Sunday we played with blocks, read books, I knitted a bit while Fiona watched "Dora". Nuala fussed a lot this weekend, and then when daddy and the boys got home she ROLLED OVER! Maybe she was just prepping for the big move.

Joining Amanda from The Habit of Being for Weekending.

Friday was awesome. Watched Mamma Mia, knitted, ate goodies, chilled at home, did some reading. Just wonderful.
Saturday was cool, breezy, and a bit drizzly. The boys started work on another movie project. So funny listening to them work it all out.
Sunday I discovered a small farmer's market not that far from us. A friend filled me in on the haps and I am so glad she did. Love that market. Picked up some greens, onions, flowers, peaches, honey, spicy pickles, radishes and yellow pear tomatoes. the rest of the day was spent nursing wee Nuala and knitting dish clothes while watching Under the Tuscan Sun.

Knitting, reading, and super cute baby

Still slowly working on the dish towels. It has been slow going because I am reading more and I have yet to figure out how to knit and read at the same time.
And then there is Nuala, my sweet little cutie pie. She is always good for a distraction... the very best kind.
