weekend recap

This weekend we had perfect weather and plenty of time to just lay low and relax!


We spent the evening at my parent's house to celebrate my sister! She just started a new journey as a travel CRNA and moved to New York, so that was our last big family dinner before she left. The kids played outside with water balloons and unfortunately Edith got a nasty bug bite. Thankfully, we are friends with a pediatrician who works with our pediatrician so he looked at it at church yesterday. He recommended we take her to be seen because the bite looks like something that can be associated with a tick. Jon is taking her in today and we are praying it's nothing serious!


We laid low on Saturday, and after a busy week of 4th of July festivities it was much needed. One of Elden's friends from school came to our pool with his mom in the early afternoon for a play date. We ended up staying for about two hours and the kids had a blast! 


Jon ran sound for church on Sunday so he had to leave by 7 am. That meant I needed to wrangle the kids solo. The last time this happened was when I was two days into my really bad postpartum depression episode. The difference between those two Sundays was thankfully like night and day! I didn't cry once, I was able to get everyone fed, napped (Etta), and things packed to take with us to church. After church, we headed home for lunch and naps/quiet time. I ended up making this soup for dinner and it did not disappoint! I like to make soup on weekends because it reheats really well for my lunches at work for the week. 
After dinner, Jon played water balloons with Elden and Edith while Etta and I hung out inside. At one point we took a little walk around our front garden where the borage re-seeded itself like crazy this year and watched all the honeybees and bumblebees make their way to every flower. Once the kids were bathed and in bed I binge-watched five episodes of Friends on Netflix while Jon went for a bike ride. It was the perfect way to end the weekend!

Linking up with Biana and Johannah.


  1. So happy things are going well for you and you're in a much better state! xoxo

  2. My first thought was tick bite when I saw the photo. Hope it turns out to be nothing serious. Happy you're feeling better. :)

  3. OH I hope the little one is ok! Tick bites are nothing to shrug off. Looks like you had a pretty good weekend!! Thanks for sharing!
