Blissful weekend

So the weekend wasn't a total waste.

Ian convinced me to call K and see if we could spend a day or two with them after we picked up the car. We'd only be 90 minutes away, and the weekend could end on a happy note. I called her and she said the whole weekend was clear and we were welcome to come.

I am so grateful to K's talents as a hostess. She always ensures I am relaxed and every need is taken care of. The old time town and dollhouse neighborhood they live in is an added bonus. We had a wonderful time to say the least!

Here are a few moments captured.

Kids playing in the dirt before we left on our twilight walk.

The kids proudly displaying their junior officer badges gifted to them by an officer passing by.

Good friends burning off steam before bedtime.

No words for this one.

Libary reading time with the Cat in the Hat. They also enjoyed games, treats and free books.

Kids hamming it up in the camper trailer - the number one toy of choice.

The neighbor took it upon himself to coach the three boys on how to hit a baseball.

K doing what she does best - Being a great example of a loving mother and reading to the kids.

(Oh and I almost forgot to mention that K showed me her vintage pattern collection recently inherited from her grandmother. What fun! We also took a trip to a flea market and found other old time treasures and purchased a few.)

Sounds like a great time! You are always finding a way to make something that wasn't so pleasant(like your car breaking down) into something wonderful (a great weekend with friends). I love that about you.
