Weekend Wrap Up

Weekends are a great time to catch up.  Catch up with family, fun, work around the house, sleep or self-care.  Sometimes weekends feel more exhausting than the week, but not so for this weekend.

We began our Friday night eating pizza with my sister, brother, and their respective families. 

Saturday, we hit Pink's first soccer game:  Go Sparks!

That afternoon we spontaneously decided to head toward the beach ... just because.


We ate MORE pizza...

and had warm carmel corn for dessert.


Of course, there was the evening show.  Never ceases to amaze, and different every night of your life.

The crescent moon followed us all the way home, like a night light for the girls until they fell asleep. Unfortunately, due to a horrible accident on the expressway our 1 hour and 20 minute drive turned into four hours as 2 helicopers had to medivac people from the wreck. It's then, in the midst of your cranky exhaustion and frustration that you realize getting stuck in hours of traffic is not the worst thing that could happen.  Breathing and walking this giant ball of earth and loving the ups and downs of your one gorgeous life - that is all that matters. 

We're breathing.  We're laughing.  We're loving.  And thankfully, we're doing it together.

Your outings make me homesick for NJ summers! LBI was my stomping grounds. Looks like you all had a lovely day. Enjoy the dog days of south Jersey summer.

"Breathing and walking this giant ball of earth and loving the ups and downs of your one gorgeous life - that is all that matters." Thank you for this, I needed to be reminded!

I love the boardwalk pics! Especially the one of your hubby and girls walking from behind, and there's something about the popcorn stand pic that I love. Made me want to go to the boardwalk today.

I love your Weekend Wrap Ups! Love the pic of the girls in the flip flops - so cute. And I, too, got stuck in traffic recently due to a horrible accident. When a lane finally cleared and we slowly began to drive past, I gasped at the condition of the upside-down car and the baby seat on the highway. I sobbed all the way to work. Our lives are so fragile.

I love this! It is funny how easy it is to forget day to day and it takes something like a huge accident to remember this. Thanks for reminding me!
