This weekend we had work commitments that kept us close to home and in this heat it would have been the perfect weekend at the beach, however you know what we had just as much fun! Great time together as a family and also catching up with both new and “old” but great, friends! We cooked some YUMMY food all weekend – enjoyed some awesome time with family and friends and of course had some very refreshing drinks!
Sure we’ve had our ups and downs, but considering we can both say this has been the best 11+ years of our lives – yup we are doing something right 😀
I certainly could not imagine my life without you either baby!
While talking with a close friend of mine we talked about various family and friends in our lives and how much we truly appreciate and value those relationships we do have, spending time with them and holding on to those mutally loving and respecting people. Much in this sense, it really does not take much to show someone you care or making time to spend with loved family and friends. Words really mean nothing, its all in the actions. Anyone can tell someone something, however those words truly mean nothing unless they are followed through with.
What we were reminded of just a few days ago was most certainly a reminder to value those we love and hold dear to our hearts.
Not just by telling them, but by showing them. I could tell them all I love them until I am blue in the face, however that truly means nothing unless I show them.
One of both of our favourite ways to show those we love them is spending time – especially cooking some awesome food!
Who knew a couple balls on a string and some pieces of wood with dowels could be SO fun lol! 😉
Made for LOTS of laughs…
And the trampoline fun!
Our kids are very much wanting one now 😉
What better way to end the weekend (and with two very tired children) than with family book time!
No, it really doesn’t take much to enjoy life to the fullest no matter where you are or what you are doing.
A part of me was bummed out that we both had work commitments, however we truly made the best of it and had a LOT of fun!!!
Especially for the kids, it does not take much for them to be happy and have fun!
No need for expensive outtings or toys – heck a lot of the toys they have they don’t play with.
Spending time together with family and friends, thats when our kids are the happiest~!
