Long weekend

I'm back from the long weekend!  I do believe after this weekend I dare say that Memorial Day is one of my favorite holidays!  Not only is it a wonderful holiday to honor our troops (I am so proud to be an American!) but I LOVE LOVE LOVE having an extra day tacked onto a weekend!
Here's how we spent our weekend...

We spent the weekend barbequeing, relaxing and swimming!  It felt so good to be outside in the fresh air and sunshine! 


I also spent part of the weekend reading this book

Francine Rivers is my favorite author and I don't know why I haven't ever read this book before! It's actually the first of three books.  It is definitely one of the best books I've ever read!  It's a fictional story of Hadassah from the Bible. Francine Rivers attention to details in her writing is incredible! Thanks to my Mom and Tricia for suggesting it!  It's a must read if you haven't already!

I believe there is a budding artist in my home.
I went to clean off Emma's little table where she eats and discovered this little creation of
 blueberries and cheese.


This little piggy LOVES chocolate cake!  Can you tell?

That's all for tonight!  Have a great Wednesday everyone!


  1. YAY for the ice cream truck! My kids love it when we catch it. And that pic of Emma in her bikini sippin Sonic...to classic. LOVE IT!

  2. FUN weekend! You got some great pictures. :)

    I have that book! Started reading it a while back and just stopped one night. Guess I need to pick it up again and start reading. That will be a good one for the beach!

  3. I love Francine Rivers, and that series is my favorite! Have you read the 5 books on women of the Bible? SO inspirational!
