Saturday Spot: Lazy Weekends…

September 26th, 2011 · 6 Comments

I was so busy watching Jane Eyre on Friday night, my all time favorite book… I quite got lost on the moors…


Followed by bit of blogging and a bit of tweeting and a bit of Pinterest…. So reality blogging here and this is what I woke up to on Saturday morning… very welcoming… tells me I live with a bunch of content kids – love it!!!

There was no time to make beds… but there was time to build an airport!!!

Sandwiches for little people – outside, so that I can tidy up inside… I was grateful for my unsung hero, the dishwasher.

Just in time for the big people to get home and a glorious day means races on the beach…

    I’m so glad I’m not the only one who’s counter looks like that some times. :)
    And the whole in the sand! Eek! I kept expecting the next picture to be some kind of critter that they found down in there! LOL
    I love reading about your family. Thanks for taking time to share it with us!

    Hi Reba… I don’t know what that is about… these long deep holes in the sand – to nowhere!!! You are way ahead of me, I hadn’t even thought of what they might find down there!!! Hopefully they will come up with a new beach project really soon… now that I am thinking of some sort of creepy crawly that could be down there!!! Lots of love and have a fun week!!!
