Because I work every other weekend, I really enjoy my weekends off. We usually have Alaina overnight on that Friday. We love spending time with her and it gives Laura and Aaron a chance to get things done at home without having a two year old getting into mischief!
I thought I would share some random photos of this past Saturday. Bob and Heather were both working, so it was just Alaina and I at home.
It was a beautiful day, the sky was clear, the sun was shining, but it was pretty cool outside. The flag was flying nicely in the breeze.
Alaina spent some time playing on the slide.
We walked around the yard and were happy to see all the buds on our maple tree.
We admired the daffodils!
Alaina took a ride on this little tractor, which belonged to our son when he was little.
We had to go inside to check the dessert Alaina "helped" me make earlier. It was done so we took it out of the oven. It's a cherry cheesecake dessert, which looked better once I put the cherries on top!
Here's a view of our living room - can you tell a 2 year old is in the house?
Time to do a little cleaning. I love this stuff, it cleans counters, tiles, walls... and it smells wonderful!
One last hug for Oliver before Alaina goes home. (She thought she needed to sit in his bed to hold him)
The house is clean, the toys are picked up, the dishes are done and it's time to relax. This candle is another thing from the Mrs Meyer's line. It isn't strong or overpowering, just has a nice clean scent.
Hope you all enjoyed your weekend too!
