This weekend felt like a long weekend, which is always nice...
Bennett and I hung out on the hammock:
Bennett went to the Children's museum with his friends Lucy and Pearl.
He especially loved playing the bucket drums:
(his name Bennett Tabor means "blessed drummer"...how cool would it be if he actually became a drummer?!)
He also did some shopping in their little market:
(Chris didn't approve of his coffee choice)
He played with the giant lite brite:
(he had crazy hair all day, but I didn't bother to fix it for some reason)
Thursday for date night Chris and I went to the Cornelius Pass McMenamins.
They have tons of outdoor seating that is pretty much in a forest lit up with strands of lights.
I could spend so much time out there:
Friday night we walked up to the park to swing before bed and some nice old ladies invited us into the community garden and let Bennett pick a bunch of their fruits and veggies:
(Proud of his onions. The little stinker always closes his eyes on purpose when I ask him to smile for a picture.)
Saturday morning snuggles while Chris was on a run:
Chris' awesome brother (who helped build the nursery) came to help install windows in/put up the new door.
(we finally got rid of the original door which was a hollow-core without a deadbolt...yes this house pretty much had an interior door for the front door for 60 years...that's safe right?)
How awesome do these windows look from Crestview Doors?!:
Bennett went with my mom to her company picnic and came back with Cookie Monster and Elmo painted on his face:
Sunday morning we made zucchini bread pancakes:
And Chris' dad came over to help cut down the fallen apple tree limb:
And also helped redo some of the siding:
We finally got our front light fixture:
(The house isn't painted yet, I was just holding the light up against the swatch we painted to get the full effect. Me likey.)
(Imagine this with a red door next to it...pretty sweet huh?)
And that was our weekend.
Happy Wednesday Friends!
