I thought I would take a quick minute to share as J and the kids take some time from the day to read a chapter from the Spiderwick Chronicles.
J came home and it has been a fabulous weekend. The sun shone brightly but the wind was incredibly chilling.
There are definatly signs of spring everywhere. The garden and greenhouse are bursting with green buds. I can already taste the freshness to come.
We volunteered at the Earth Day festivities at Simms Park at the Our Big Earth craft booth and had a ton of fun. K was the ubber volunteer, I am so proud of her.
K had soccer in the afternoon. I love how she runs around the field in an excited prance, a wide smile telling the world her pure joy of playing.
Afterwards we spent the rest of the day in the yard and had a group of our friends and babes over for a BBQ and we experienced our first bonfire in the new firepit. Perfect summer times.
My most frivilous purchase was made this weekend and I actually had heartburn from my remorse. No mistaking it is an indulgance I will forever enjoy and it has been glued to my eyes all morning.
Yes a new camera. A nikon D90. I am thrilled.
My life looks so much better through the lense of a great camera.
Now i just need to learn how to use it properly. I must register for a class soon.
I plan to spend the rest of the afternoon sewing a few gifts for my friends and a gift for a friends baby's first birthday. I think a skirt is in order.
K is going to the matinee with Nana and the cousins and J and E are putting the finishing touches on the turkey house.
