Weekend Rewind

This past weekend was probably the best one yet since we moved back home! If there were any doubts about whether moving home was the right decision, they are now gone. Being with family like this was what Gabe and I missed the most and after living away from home for about ten years, I am so glad to be able to be part of the fun rather than jealously hearing about it. Remember how we had spent the weekend at a cousin's house for Memorial Day weekend? We had so much fun that weekend that we decided to do it again for Father's Day! And I remembered to have a camera handy this time. :)

But let's start with Friday. The kids and I had heard of a new playground opening so we went to check it out. It was located next to a fruit farm in a great park complete with tons of paths and trails winding around the park and even through the apple orchard.

After having their fill of the playground, Alena and Christian broke out their bikes and rollerblades while Noah continued playing. After a bit I strapped Noah in the Beco carrier and we took a nice long walk through some park trails. It was cut a bit short when it started to rain and even though I despise being in the wet rain, we were having such a good time that I didn't even mind being sprinkled on!

Can't wait to come back for apple picking!
 Saturday, we headed back down to my cousin's house for another great sleepover. Last time we were there, they had just opened the pool but it wasn't quite ready. The pool was ready this time and it was put to good use! The kids had a blast running around, playing, driving the 4-wheeler, and then noshing on some s'mores around the campfire before a late bedtime. After the kids were finally down, us ladies sat around the fire for some uninterrupted conversation while enjoying a glass of wine before heading to bed ourselves.

Can't believe they can drive!

Sunday, Father's Day, the kids were up bright and early (of course) and those who hadn't spent the night came down and we enjoyed an absolutely gorgeous day. The kids were in and out of the pool, the dads went kayaking, and the ladies prepared a late lunch in between taking breaks for kids and fun.

The babies thought the pool was a little too chilly so we let them enjoy the kitchen sink!

After another busy fun filled weekend, we headed home thoroughly exhausted. And bonus, I got to talk to Gabe for the first time in five days!

How was your Father's Day weekend?
