Ideal Weekend

We had a wonderful weekend. Ferris Bueller said it best "Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look once and awhile you'll miss it" We listened and slowed down a bit this weekend.

Saturday morning we threw some baseball caps on our bedhead and walked down to the Farmer's Market.
Bennet picked out these raspberries. De-lish!
Of course she also picked out a cinnamon roll. Look at that messy face! Amazingly enough she didn't get any on her white shirt. Miracle.
Scout sharing her excitement.
I heaer Michigan peaches are da-bomb.
At the VFW next to the Market there was an American Tribute- a Traveling Memorial It was an unexpected After we were done at the Market we walked up to have breakfast at The Mint. This sign always makes me laugh. Apparently the street is too narrow to hang the sign the normal way.
I made Nick take a photo of me to prove I was there :) Thanks to Grandma Sweeney, Bennet uses sugar packs like Lik-A-Mid :) Ah- the stuff of memories.
On the walk home Scout was plum tuckered out. Bennet jammed out to Huey Lewis on the IPod.

Today was gorgeous. Nick and I spent most of the day edging our sidewalk. It was alot of work and we ended up with alot more grass and dirt than we thought- but wow!!! The finished product looks great!!
The girls played in the sprinkler.
This is a classic Scout face. Every morning she greets me . . .

Bennet took a 3 hour nap!! Woo hoo. Then she wanted to pose for photos with Stoli kitty.
Her new face. She thinks it's the funniest thing.
I know this photo looks posed, but it was totally natural.
Two of a kind. Good gracious my legs are white!

Hope everyone else had a relaxing weekend. Sorry for the photo overload.

You have a real talent with photos and the words you choose to describe them. I am so envious. Remember, I am a Kari wannabe!
