For the first time in awhile, we had a relaxing weekend. Not a whole lot on the agenda, which was a much needed break. But with these types of weekends comes exciting activities like hand washing all my "hand wash only" clothes that have been piling up for months. The only thing that would make this activity even slightly fun, would be an outdoor clothes line. I need to get Conor on that project...
Aside from all the laundry, there was a trip to the waterpark Friday night, where Liam is now tall enough to do ALL THE SLIDES. As in he says "bye mom" and scurries off with friends to do slide after slide, and I don't see him for far too long. How is my baby at this stage?! I love it and am terrified all at the same time! We also made it to the farmer's market for some tomato plants to complete the vegetable garden. Our farmer's market is at an actual farm, and it's my favorite way to spend Sunday morning. I love stocking up on fresh produce for the week; it inspires me to keep our meals healthy! We'll see how long a pound of fresh cherries will last me... I probably should have gone for 2 lbs!
There was also bubble bathing (because Liam is obsessed with all LUSH bath bombs & bubble bars). Camping hammock frame building. Barbecuing. Drinking. Kombucha kegging (POG this month). Which by the way, there have been some requests for me to share more about brewing my own kombucha, hard cider, & ginger beer; so if I can get myself together, I will gets some posts up about all the fermenting going on in the Keenan household.
I also had a chance to sneak away to the mountains for a bit on Saturday morning. We had a blessingway for one of my friends, out in the woods behind her house. She's hoping to birth her baby outside, so we all gathered in the little fort she has put together. It was a special morning as we get ready to welcome another baby into our little tribe. After only a few hours away from my boys, I always feel so rejuvenated as a mother. A little "me" time is always appreciated!
