Week in the Life: Weekend Photos

It is finished!! What a full week – I haven’t taken this many pictures, or finished this many blog posts in a long, long time! Glad I did it, and glad it’s done! I feel like this photo challenge motivated me to capture a great collection of photos depicting what our life looks like right now. But I think it will be fun to just go through the day today without having to run for my camera all the time!!

Here are our weekend pictures:


Today was fun and full and busy! The girls were at Ben’s parents’ house for a sleepover, and I had a physio appointment at 8:30 in the morning, so I took my breakfast on the road with me.

On Sunday morning, we got ready for church, and went to Sunday school.



Ben made pancakes for lunch, and made lots of extra to freeze for quick breakfasts this next week.

After lunch, there was just lots of playing, lying around and relaxing, and family time.

I hope your day will also be filled with these good things, and even if you don’t take pictures of it all, I hope you can remember to pause and soak it in! I read once that when we relive the good parts of our day, our bodies experience the same amount of enjoyment in the memory as we do when it’s actually happening. Isn’t that amazing?! I think we could all be getting a lot more mileage out of the good, beautiful moments!

Have a wonderful Monday!
