our weekend

we, for some reason this summer, haven't been able to spend too many weekends just being home.
this weekend was completely different, we didn't really go anywhere.
well we did make one trip to home depot.
name of the game this weekend...operation lets do some of the things we've been meaning to do for a long time all in two days.
that included:
*spreading a weed control plastic blanket in the kid's play area
*spreading 90 bags of bark (and we still could use some more!) in the kid's area
*mr v and co finished the sand box cover and we added more sand into the sand box that mr v and co made over two years ago.
*i bought paint (oh yes i did) to finally do a project i've been meaning to do for over 5 years now. (pictures to come later on this week)
*i made a new header for the blog. after seeing my friend melissa's new header i had to get on it and make one for myself. (you can make your own mosaic here.)
we did a fire pit and then let the boys camp in our back yard. they've been wanting to do this ever since we let them sleep on the trampoline a few nights earlier this summer.
little miss thing wanted to be part of the camping experience as well.
katie tried she really did, but with all the excitement i think it was too much for her. around 10:30 we told her she had to go inside and try to fall asleep in her own bed. she didn't like it, but finally gave in to the dark side and conked out.

all in all we had a good hard working weekend and i'm sore to prove it.

I know what it's like to wish fervently for a weekend home alone, with just your loved ones - and even hope for a rainy day where you all can just sit in and watch movies. I feel like this summer has been one big adventure after another! Can't wait for a break!

You really have the most beautiful little family. We used to have campouts in the back yard all the time in the summer for our kids. Such happy memories.
The sand box looks great. A definite must. One of the first things we would put in our yard also, except we were not smart enough to put on a cover. I think every cat in the neighborhood loved our sandbox also.

It sounds like a really great (and productive) weekend.

Love it when we stay home and get things done around the house too. Looks like your family had fun and got some stuff done. My hubby had the same idea few weeks ago. He thought we could put the weed fabric down and remulch the WHOLE backyard in two days...yeah, UM, NOT!
Love the new header. Off to check out your link.

A true "country" style weekend! Isn't it nice to just get stuff done?

Melissa said...

LOVE the new header- awesome idea- I might have to re do mine now!
I love weekends with nothing to do (other than what you want to)- ours was like that too- such a blessing when it happens.

Very fun! We have a family of five and only a two-man tent so not much camping going on around here. A bigger tent is on our wishlist!

Your header looks terrific and thank you so much for providing such an easy site to use! Even I was able to do it which says a lot.

Some of the best times are when you don't have to leave home!!!!
