A Perfect Weekend

We had a wonderful, snuggly, sleepy, playful weekend.

Slept in on Saturday.
Made the perfect carafe of morning coffee.
Built block towers.
Played with alphabet flashcards.
Walked to get the mail.
Lunch at Jimmy John's Deli.

Saw a gorgeous rainbow.

Saw both ends of it.

Sunday breakfast at the Cracked Egg, our favorite.

Said "hi" to little girls.
Ate their famous coffee cake.
Ate a whole "lil chicks" platter.
. . . bacon!

Mmmm . . "Veggy Benny" with spinach, avocado and tomatoes.

Took long afternoon naps.
Sang the alphabet song.
Played with trucks.

Read as many storybooks as possible.
Played with pup-pups.
Played with trains.
Snuggled some more.

Loved each other.

Took a trip to Fresh & Easy.
Had homemade lasagna.
Made a cake.

Ate cake.

Watched movies.
Spent some time walking in Da Da's shoes.

Let's do it all again in five days!

Trader Joe's run - homemade crab cakes Saturday - gym Sunday morning - organic bagels with smoked salmon, red onion, cream cheese, and tomato, coffee, granola, banana - hiked Mt. Tom - 8" of fresh powder, 40 degrees and sunny...then spent the afternoon snuggling on the couch...

isn't it great that the best weekends are spent at home doing absolutely nothing! Lets do this every weekend.

ok, how old is james?
he slept in????

and what's with all the cooking? i seriously need to pick your brain and see how you do all of this.

my husband has been begging me to make braciole ( i am italian, he is not) since before ryan was born. i never seem to have the energy or time to do it.

It looks to me as though those big, big smiles are saying 'I am a very lucky boy. So much love!'

Stephanie said...

OK, the close-up of James is my new favorite shot of him. I'm going to print it and finally replace the picture I have from when he turned 1!
