This weekend was the first in a long time that
we had no extra obligations.
The weather was beautiful,
and we spent the majority of it out walking.
Saturday’s walk in field and woods
quickly turned muddy,
the four of us squelched our way through a couple miles,
alternating between laughing about it and complaining.
We came home, rinsed off, grilled burgers
then had root beer floats and hot fudge** sundaes for dessert.
Sunday was relaxing with a quiet morning of
boys reading and building masterpieces with Lego bricks,
E and I slowly savoring our coffees.
The weather was still beautiful, so we walked again
refreshing our memories of all the birds we hadn’t seen for months.
After chatting about our town’s history,
we decided on an impromptu visit to the local museum where we
spent hours looking at the “our town” exhibits,
as well as the gallery of Dutch paintings from the
17th and 19th centuries.
A perfect weekend to remember.
*but have to remember my camera next time!
iphone photos just do not cut it.
**the hot fudge sauce was made using this recipe,
but swapped the corn syrup for honey (about 5T) and
half the chocolate for 6T cocoa powder + 1T extra butter.
Otherwise followed it as written.
