Long weekends are amazing. I happen to think all weekends should be long weekends. I'm almost sure there are enough holidays to make every weekend a long weekend, and if not, well we can just make some up right?
Ok, maybe not, but it is a nice thought.
We didn't do much special this weekend. We took a road trip to Springfield Friday night to pick up Gavin's pictures from Sears. While there we did some "window" shopping which lead to Gavin purchasing this new friend:
On Saturday it was hot. Not unbearably hot, but 90s hot. Justin and I decided the boys needed to squeeze in one last swim before summer officially flew the coop for the year. They didn't mind at all.
Sunday brought us GORGEOUS 70 degree weather and found us keeping up our usual traditions: church followed by lunch at Mimi and Papa's. Later we were able to sneak in a nice long walk before dinner. That evening we opened all the windows and let the warm breeze blow in. It was so nice to have fresh air in the house again!
On Monday - the actual holiday - it was back to business. I did a zillion loads of laundry while Justin graded papers. In the between time I finished putting together the play room...
Best part of the weekend for me (and probably Justin too though I wouldn't presume to speak for him (oh nevermind, yes I would!)): Lots of great weather and good family time.
Best part of the weekend for my boys: Hands down it was the play room. Logan will even tell you so. Gavin will too if you speak dolphin (that's exactly what his high pitched squeals sound like - dolphins). See for yourself:
