Highlights from a long weekend

My dears, we had the best weekend over here.  My little hometown on the river is definitely at its best in the middle of summer.  Hot sun, a cold river, ice cream and plenty of time for an afternoon nap add up to perfect weekend days.

  My Father in law was in town and had lots of fun wearing the girls out.

 Ellie took her maiden voyage on the jet ski and turned out to be a little speed demon.  I caught Addie in a rare moment of happiness while wearing the life jacket.  If you want good entertainment, just put an 18 month old in a big life jacket and watch her try to walk around and play on a moving boat ;).

The only thing I didn't capture was our trip to the taco truck, the fireworks, and those long naps, of course.  I hope your weekend was great too!

P.S.  I'm trying to talk my husband into doing a little post about how to make his amazing pizza crust/pizza (pictured above)!


  1. that pizza looks AMAZING! i'd love to learn how to make it. great photos! looks like it was a wonderful weekend :)

  2. I'm impressed that you managed to make the Tri-Cities look magical! :)

  3. I don't know how I stumbled across your blog but I saw the bridge and thought, "Is that Tri-Cities?!" I'm from Othello and am beyond impressed that you managed to make it look magical.

  4. Haha, your comments about the Tri-Cities made me laugh. I guess any place can be magical if you try hard enough!
