scenes from the weekend
The weekend was good. The popsicle party on Saturday went off without a hitch. It was well attended and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves. Ken placed a sprinkler under the trampoline and the kids jumped in the spray. They loved it! (Instagram video of it here).
My parents very kindly offered to watch the kids post-party, and Ken and I had our first date night in a month or so. It was so nice to have time together, just the two of us. Yay for date nights! We grabbed burgers here and saw a movie (yay for entertainment!). We saw Thanks for Sharing which I much enjoyed. I don't need a fancy date night to feel re-connected. A burger and a movie is fantastic, as far as I'm concerned.
Sunday we celebrated the equinox with a little tea party. I attempted to make aebelskivers for the first time ever. I bought a little pan at the Scandinavian festival last spring. You guys--it's hard! They were tasty, but none too pretty. I will say they make a delightful tea dish. We even got a touch of fall-ish weather, so the timing was perfect.
Otherwise, it was a fairly normal weekend with chores and hanging out. I'm ready for another week!
