So many of you may have found my blogging a bit quiet over the weekend.
— silence on the blogging front, in fact all of my social media platforms.
That was totally intentional and not because I ran out of things to share. This weekend was about spending quality time with my family and friends. That is what we did! Every year we say we don’t want to make plans, we just want a quiet relaxing time for us to just regroup after a busy winter and spend time just lounging and hanging out at the park.
Our weekend was relaxing! But we kicked it off with a brunch on Friday with a few of our neighbourhood friends (12 adults and 6 kids!) Busy times, but we made it a “community affair“each family bringing a dish to share. The kids had a blast playing together, especially in the Park.
So the funny part is that even after spending the entire morning together, we parted ways for nap time, we still found ourselves together at the park later in the day. This is definitely the greatest part of our small neighbourhood, the community. I have shared this with you all before!
Saturday, after spending a lovely morning with my Aunt and Cousin visiting from out-of-town, we spent the day preparing for our big dinner we were hosting. Turkey with some spring time sides (AND, sticking with my promise to not obsess over taking pictures and having my phone stuck in my hand, I took no pictures of the actual meal). The meal was a huge success! And again we gathered together with our close friends celebrating the Easter season.
Sunday we spent the day together as a family and played at the Park and were treated to a delicious family dinner of homemade turkey soup.
Aren’t holidays an amazing thing?
They always bring together family and friends, and make you re-evaluate your priorities and what “family time” really means.
