Family Week

Jon had the week off last week. He always has a lot of unused vacation time built up by the end of the year, so this year we decided to schedule intentional family weeks. We may not go anywhere or have anything specific to do, but he takes the week off work and we just enjoy ourselves.

We had a lot of good family time and I took a little break from blogging. This week will be my first official week as a stay-at-home-mom and I am planning to get a blog post up every Tuesday and Thursday mornings and I may throw in a Friday post occasionally. Hopefully that will be the schedule I maintain for awhile.

Last week, we did some house projects. The main one is that Jon stained our back patio. It looks really nice!



Our long term plan is to build a deck out to the right and front of the porch. Hopefully in the next year or so, we will get that started, but for now, I think we are really going to enjoy this space. I took these before we put all the furniture back so I need to take a better after picture, but here is what the space looked like before…


We also spent some time at the jumpy house. We took advantage of their preschool play time and basically had the whole place to ourselves!


I never got a chance to share a few pictures from our Mother’s Day dinner with my family. My parents are adding a stone patio off the back porch of their Round Rock house. So far my dad had just laid down the sand, which both kids loved. Actually Adelaide was all about it, Aedan had to put on his shoes first (my clean one).
