may long weekend

Long weekends mean so much more when the weather is nice and you are able to spend your time outdoors. May long weekend did not disappoint. It was a busy one, it was full of fun in the sun enjoying picnics, barbecues, ice cream and time with friends and family.

Saturday started off at the dance studio as Little Miss L. was preparing for her big recital. Afterwards, we met up with my sister-in-law and nephew to enjoy a picnic at the arboretum. It was the perfect place for a picnic under the beautiful cherry blossoms. As the kiddos ran around exploring, I was able to snap a few pictures of my sister-in-law who is due to have another bundle of joy at the end of July. The day would not be complete without stopping for an ice cream. We tried out a new ice cream shop in town and the kids thought it was pretty cool that they were allowed to pick out the flavour of ice cream and add their own toppings. It was a great day and both kiddos passed out early for the evening.

Sunday, we headed to church in the am, then it was off to grocery shopping and finally home to the fun stuff of cleaning, laundry, and purging. I am determined to get rid of the junk that has started to accumulate in our home before the next bambino arrives. I was beat by the end of the day, and spent the rest of night cuddled up on the couch. I may or may not have fallen asleep before 10pm.

Monday, oh how I love love love the extra day of weekend. We woke up early and started our day with a yummy breaky of daddy's famous crepes. Once our bellies were full, it was time to finish some projects around the house. Daddy was able to finally get the garden and plants in. The afternoon arrived, the kids were super excited as we had a few friends over for a barbecue. The kids ran about as the men watched over because the ladies sat munching away and catching up. All three of us are expecting, which meant we spent most of our time gathered around the appetizers. Sorry, boys... we promise things will be different next May long weekend.

I have to say that I was one tired momma after the long weekend and may still be recovering but we have another fun-filled weekend ahead of us. Happy Friday everyone!!
