We had no plans this weekend and it was amazing...exactly what we needed. 
We were able to relax, but we also got a lot of things done which is always nice.

It truly felt like summer with temps in the 80's on Saturday.
B enjoyed his kiddie pool:
(as did Chris)
He ran back and forth watering the deck with his hippo watering can:
The boys both took baths in the pool and dried off in the sunshine:
We had a few potty training successes...I think he may be starting to get it!
We had a family fro yo date:
and Bennett drew us a picture:
Sunday morning Bennett brought Chris his Father's Day present in bed and said "happy birthday daddy" as he gave it to him:
 and of course we had to make them for breakfast:
(B keeps calling them "monster" pancakes...maybe he's still a little young for Star Wars)
We said goodbye to newborn clothes:
(this guy is getting chunky and I love it!)
 and I made this rhubarb cake using the last of the rhubarb from the backyard:
(I love reaping the harvest of the previous homeowner!)
(it's a recipe from the 50's so there are some interesting ingredients like mini marshmallows and a box of strawberry jello powder...it sounds weird on paper but it was really good!)

Things are starting to get a little easier around here and we are all feeling much better.
Let's just hope it stays like that.

Happy Tuesday Friends!
