A Summer Slow Down: Our Weekend in Photos

By amberdoty |

I don’t know about you, but we have spent far too many weekends this summer on the go. This season is supposed to be about leisure, naps in a hammock, and sipping iced tea on the porch while the kids run through the sprinklers in the yard. At least that’s what my Southern life-in-the country upbringing has led me to believe. Instead we have been busy remodeling our home, fighting our jungle of a yard, and rushing off to birthday parties, weddings, and other obligations.

I haven’t done much tea-sipping or hammock-lounging these last few months, but this weekend I decided to let the grass keep growing for a few more days, to put my phone on silent, and to just enjoy my children.

We had the simplest kind of fun. Here are a few photos from our weekend:

DIY Angry Birds

On Saturday morning we made our own Angry Birds game which was a refreshing change from allowing my 5-year-old to bury his face in a video game.

What did your family do this weekend?
