A Weekend of Gratitude

I had an awesome weekend.  I was home alone with my boys, and I am utterly exhausted; but we had a great time.  You know those moments you have sometimes when you get overwhelmed with gratitude for all the love and beauty you have in your life?  If you're like me, you may not have those moments as often as you'd like.  You have to stop yourself to look around, and that can be hard to do sometimes.  Well, this weekend was one long grateful moment. 

Beautiful, happy, healthy boys.  Fabulous weather.  And time to play.  What did we do?  Here's an incomplete list:
  • chased bubbles
  • rode bikes (well, the big boy did anyway)
  • swings, slides, and other playground stuff
  • climbed a hay pyramid
  • made blueberry pancakes
  • visited the farmer's market
  • had a picnic in front of a couple guitar players
  • read books
  • ate tiny red and orange cherry tomatoes so sweet they tasted like candy
  • kicked balls in the grass
  • played 'Memory'
  • rode a train through the orchard
  • listened to a kid's musician
  • ate lots and lots of fruit
  • built towers and knocked them down
  • played with the neighbor's kids
  • ate corn on the cob
  • painted big boxes
  • built a fort
  • watched a movie
  • ate strawberry gelato
  • looked at the big pumpkins at the farm (and the little pumpkins we have growing at home)
  • chased each other in the yard
  • and after all of that....we slept!
I don't have a single picture to show for it, since I was focused on enjoying the moments instead of capturing them.  But you can imagine it...beautiful boys and their mama, all with big smiles on their faces.
