A Weekend to be Treasured

Memorial Day weekend.  It was just simply wonderful.
I wanted time to stand still because every minute was worth savoring and savor we did.
A baseball game, new recipes, naps with babies, time with friends, a trip to the pool.  
A weekend to be treasured.  

A trip to the city for a baseball game.  The last time we were here, Chris and I had just met and were on a date.

This time around, the hubs was accompanied by 3 little ladies and a pregnant mama.  8 years later, much has changed.
I like it.
A trip to our Secret Place with our sweet friends the Ho's.  Mulberries brought butterflies and little hands were grateful.

And if that wasn't enough, we have the fabulous return of the pig tails.
Alice Elizabeth, included in this batch.  She's so adorable I can hardly stand it.
She looks like Sophie.  She looks like a little girl.
She could probably ask Chris for a Mercedes and he would say yes.
Continued tinkering with Double Chocolate Chip cookies.  We have officially perfected it to our liking.  Sophie added the chocolate chips so who knows how much we actually added.  We swapped 1/2 stick of butter for some peanut butter and even threw in some peanuts.
Because any fabulous weekend must include cookies and I'm convinced peanut butter and chocolate are the perfect combination.

Our first trip to the pool at sweet Judi's house.  Always a favorite and fun time for all.

This summer, Bunny was more slow to get in.  She carefully surveyed her options and eventually got in with mama.

And this precious one, Naifeh Elizabeth, she came too.  Pure delight, this baby just melts our hearts.

Dinner with friends, lazy morning breakfasts with the discovery of PW's berry butter, and a weekend commenced with a house full of friends and babies.

The curtain has closed on this long weekend of joy and rest, leaving us refreshed for the week and excited for the weekend to come.
Bunny agrees.
 Happy week to all!
