It is um…Tuesday.

So let’s just pretend it is Monday, since that is what it feels like.

And….I’ve got nothing for Crafty Tuesday.

Well, I do. Kinda. I made cards for my niece and godchild who both have birthdays coming up. But I think I will share them with you all next week when it is a little closer to their birthdays and they are at least in the mail.

So what did we do with our long weekend?

Well, the girls and I visited our favorite beach with some friends on Friday and said a little goodbye to summer.

I love this photo of Emma from the beach.

Addie was not in the mood for being stalked by the paparazzi and I didn’t get any good photos of her the entire day.

And the rest of the weekend, we did nothing. Seriously. Nothing, really.

I went for a run, we did the things you “have to do” like eat and sleep but the rest of the time? We just “were.”

Addie

We did play a bunch of games like – Hi-Ho Cheerios, Sequence Jr., Hungry Hippos. Then Daddy opened up the “big kid games” and taught Em how to play Uno, Chess, and Battleship. She is hooked and wants to play it all the time now.

Yesterday we did take a walk through the Huntington Gardens. I shot some photos, we played in the Children’s Garden and showed Daddy our favorite gardens.

Oh, I see...we need to go here!

Spidey webs

Daddy took this one of his girls. He took the camera from Addie (who was shooting Em and I) and got this while talking on the phone. He is a great multi-tasker. I like this photo, too – it has a sunny, hazy, dreamy kind of look to it.

The girls at the garden

But we had no agenda. Nothing planned. It was really quite rejuvenating and relaxing.

Topped the weekend off with a BBQ with Uncle Jeff and Wendy and we are officially now in “Fall Mode.”

And so it begins.

I’ll be back with some crafts next week – but leave a comment if you have something this week to share!

(Speaking of which, my nieces start back to school today – well Lexer starts “back” and Madey starts “starts!” First day at kidnergarten! Hope you both have great days!)

    Love the photo of you and the kids.

    It’s weird having school start in hotter weather than we had most of the summer it seems – 91 today.

    As always – great photos and great stories.

    Great pics. I love the one of you and the girls. You deserve a weekend to do nothing! Do the girls start school today also? Where does the time go.
    Love you all.

    LOL, you sure did a lot for doing nothing all weekend. That’s actually very busy compared to a normal weekend at our house. My husband doesn’t like to do ANYTHING on his days off, so we usually just let the kids play in the yard with their friends.

    Doing nothing ROCKS! I’m a little jealous. 🙂

    It totally does feel like Monday. I’m so “off.” Sounds like a great relaxed weekend…having fun but all on your terms, nothing that’s a *must do.*

    Spiderweb photo is awesome!

    And, umm, when did Gracie get so big??
