...splashing to cool off was the perfect thing to do. Oh, how I love this girl! :)
Happy Monday! On Friday I shared something that made my AnnaLynn smile, so I figured today was as good a day as any to share some things that made me smile. These photos were taken the same afternoon as the Belmont when we had family here for the weekend; four generations together which also makes me smile. Today just happens to be Miss Charlotte's 2nd birthday -- a third reason to smile. :)
Have you read or seen The Book Thief?
While subjected to the horrors of World War II Germany, young Liesel finds solace by stealing books and sharing them with others. In the basement of her home, a Jewish refugee is being sheltered by her adoptive parents.We saw the trailer a while back and picked up the dvd while at the library last week, AnnaLynn's reading the book, and even though she's not quite finished, we watched the movie on Friday evening (yes, more WWII for me). It's quite an interesting story and well acted -- Geoffrey Rush is amazing (IMDb here and trailer here)!
Other weekend happenings included:
Working the garden: weeding the corn patch and spreading wood chips here and there to keep the weeds at bay. Picking strawberries, basil, and lettuces.
Dancing: we attended an English country dance hosted by a family in our church to celebrate the beginning of summer -- yes!! Welcome summer!
Feasting: grilled burgers, corn on the cob, and watermelon for Father's Day -- delicious! Yes, AnnaLynn and I both took a no-guilt break from our grain-free diet.
Joining Karen, feeling blessed, and looking forward to a slow day...
