What a weekend!

As usual, on Friday we had our all day play date with our little guys. They both had colds and runny noses but were still loving and fun. E had to leave around 1 for a dr. apt. with his heart doctor. And he got an A+. Our change in eating and our daily walks and rides are paying off.

We got home and our wonderful weekend company from the other side of the state arrived, Kim and Mark. We dined at Dimitri's on the Water down on the Sponge Docks, and enjoyed each others' company the rest of the evening.

Sat. morning, Mark and Kim headed to the triathlon race down in St. Pete and I headed up to Posh Scraps to teach Workshop Four: stamping and inking on mixed backgrounds. We stamped and inked on acrylic, vellum, tissue paper and glass and, for fun, made a necklace with alcohol inks, stamped images and Memory glass and frames.

After class, the little boys, Little Mama and Big Daddy came over and we let the boys loose to race around the house chasing each other and, again, we were all laughing so hard. Landon is so close to walking, it is scary and Colvin is not far behind. Little Mama is going to have her hands full in a short time. The boys have already figured out how to undo the gate to their bedroom...oh oh!

We swam and grilled and ate and laughed. I know the kids were glas to see GAK (great Aunt Kim).

Sunday, E and I did some laundry and a tad bit of weeding on the lower lawn. We've got a list of the plants that need replacing and will be visiting our favorite nurseries today to take care of that. Our fence guys should be out to measure for the fence that will go across our lanai and hopefully they can start installation early next week. The gate will swing inward and have two art deco-ish solar lights on either side.

After Kim and Mark left, E and I called halt to our to do list and enjoyed the day...I did not scrap, I did not clean, I did finish up a couple of loads of laundry and I did read a great book: The Lake of Dreams by Kim Edwards who also wrote The Memory Keeper's Daughter. Excellent read.

We have a busy couple of weeks ahead of us and can't wait to plunge in. Hope you have a great Monday.
