We really wanted to celebrate this weekend. But, you don't have to "go out" or have a party to celebrate. We had a lot to do around the house and had errands to run since we were out of town for the long labor day weekend. So, we just enjoyed each other all weekend long.
Our kids truly bring me so much joy...along with a ton of smiles. Abbey has been loving "racing". Now, she usually races alone, so I am not sure if you can really call it "racing." Perhaps she is trying to achieve a specific time goal that she has set for herself. I can already tell at 20 months that our little girl is going to be competitive.
|First, Abbey lines up against a nearby wall. Then, she tells you she's ready.|
|Drew or I say "On your mark....get set....GO!"|
|And....She's Off! Go, Abbey Go! She giggles the whole way.|
On Saturday, before running errands we stopped by a nearby park. Abbey was busy exploring at the park. Luke wanted to bring his sidewalk chalk since we really don't have many places to use it at our house.
|Luke was multi-tasking...keeping an eye on what was going on at the playground and creating a masterpiece with sidewalk chalk. (Oh--and that is Abbey's pink cup--not his.)|
|Abbey continued to explore. A Miss Independent she is!|
|A trip to the park wouldn't be complete without some playing on the playground equipment though. But, you can see here that Luke is now keeping an eye on his chalk art in the distance. He wants to make sure no one is messing it up.|
Now when she was doing them beside me, she wasn't holding onto anything. I guess she wanted to make sure her form looked perfect for daddy.
She also got a pretty big kick out of the sound she can make with her bare, clammy feet on our wood floors. It is pretty cute. Here is that video.
So there you go. Our weekend of enjoying our lives together this past weekend in celebration of NO CANCER! We finished off the weekend with fellowship with our church missional community group on Sunday night. We love those people!
