Weekends


Weekends are for memory making, 
relaxing and enjoying quiet moments of our days.  
If you would like, please share your weekend moments 
  in the comment section with a link to your blog.


This weekend I went to with my family to hickory run state park where we visited boulder field.  The kids walked all the way to the end while my husband and I sat with Frodo.  Who LOVED being at the park.


Sadly in the past couple of weeks vandals spray painted numerous boulders.  We have through the years visited this park whenever we have out of town company and sometimes we just took the kids for fun.


Frodo truly believes that everyone is put on this earth to say "hello" to him :)



We picnicked but I did not photo that...too busy eating food.


We walked a stretch of road that is less traveled, all you could hear was the rushing water in the nearby stream and birds.  I find I use my phone camera all the time because of convenience.  When I use the big camera, I'm happy and feel even more tuned into what I am photographing.  A joyful experience.


The weekend also had:

::corn on the cob::a full house::bagels::sunshine::walks in the woods, my own and in the park::unplugged from the internet::hamburgers and hotdogs::knitting::list making::long conversations::

How was your weekend?

  9. It's been a while since I came over to visit you and it looks as though your weekends are still just as full of family and peace as always. We're in Paris at the moment, so it's been a little different than the usual for us!

  13. Oh we had a walk in the woods and sweet corn too. It all so good...lovely to see your gorgeous family. Such a shame though when people try to spoil natural beauty. Frodo is cute that it would be hard to resist saying hello.

  24. Looks like such a lovely time! It makes me sad that vandals feel the need to destroy things of beauty. I think Frodo is correct...everyone should greet him. :)

  25. What a beautiful weekend! It is wonderful to see you all in shorts and t-shirts in the sunshine! We can't catch a break from the cold temperatures or rain here. It isn't feeling a bit like summer...yet. I hold out hope! And, I think Frodo is totally right. ;)

  26. Your weekend looks marvelous! I just don't understand why anyone wouldn't stop to say hello to Frodo. He's such a charmer.

  27. Such a wonderful place. My kids just LOVE climbing all over rocks, they would be in love with that place.
    And my daughter would agree, Frodo does deserve a stop and greet!
