it was the very best kind of weekend - equally productive & fun!
we went school shopping (my fav) cleaned house, did homework, and even prepared a scrumptious and homey kind of sunday dinner.
we also fit in all sorts of less responsible kinds fun.

we went here:

where we rode this:

atop which we could see this:

and where we took lots of these:

than we picked all these red beauties:
(from our very own garden)

from which i made (and we consumed) this:
the likes of which cannot be described in words alone.
but i will try to in just two - comfort. food.

we were surprised and delighted by all this from these guys:
(we are in complete awe of all these homemade goodies. thank you-thank you!)

which was perfectly timed to our removing freshly baked bread from the oven.
which we slathered with the beautiful apple jelly.
and then immediately felt like we were back in grandmas kitchen - it was that good!

and on that note, Happy Monday!
