Sounds like a fun weekend. Mine was just same old, spring cleaning, and took my daughter to get a manicure and shopped for clothes. It's so fun to have a daughter!

There was just alot of laziness going on this weekend. Weather was iffy so we stayed home from the lake but went shopping for things FOR the lake which is fun when you set aside money each week during the winter for this exact thing!
Son came home late Saturday night and spent a couple of hours with us before he went back to school.
I read and knit and cooked, had a couple of beers outside on Saturday when it actually was nice and sunny.
Altogether an enjoyable weekend.
