a long weekend! Long weekends are the best. You have time to do everything you need to, plus sit around in your pajamas all day, plus celebrate a beloved Omi's birthday, plus take a daytrip, plus make raisin bread. Above: cuteness we couldn't resist, coloring away a weekend morning, reading with pops, and receiving a geography lesson from cousin Carissa, whom we all adore (and isn't it cute that her and Ben have matchy glasses? I think good taste runs in their family. Whew, I chose the right family to marry into, I tell you!).
