Weekend Happiness

There was more clearing of the backyard this weekend. Michael dug up at least three clumps of trees with root structures like this one. Slowly, but surely, we are getting somewhere.


We had another toddler birthday party this weekend, so another tote was whipped up. In this one we deposited a Charlie and Lola book. My kids love them, hopefully Nate will too.


My parents dropped in on Friday on their way home from another visit. My mom always seems to have some goodies for me, and in my pile was this quilt. It was in my grandmother's things, but Mom wasn't sure if my grandma made it or where it came from. I like to think it was a child's play-mat with so many interesting shapes and colors to look at. Check out that giant squirrel! If you blow it up, you can see some other gems in there.


And last, but certainly not least, my favorite part of the weekend in which Calvin learns to ride his 2 wheel bike like a champ!!!!

My not so favorite part? Crashing into Ellie.
