I heart long weekends!

Our weekend was wonderful and having that extra day at home with John and the kids yesterday was icing on the cake!
Our friends we camped with earlier this summer went back again this weekend. I really, really wanted to join them but John ix-nayed the idea. I may not remember a lick of French from high school, but my pig latin is flawless. We did the next best thing and set the tent up in the backyard and let the kids sleep out there on Saturday night. Jack the beagle joined them for popcorn and a movie. Fun times. I chickened out of sleeping out there with them since our overnight lows have been in the 30s/40s. Brrrrrrrr.

I think all five of us slept in each morning of this long weekend. Hooray! John likes making breakfast on the weekends and one morning he made scones for us. The girls made the "Welcome to Scone Palace" sign for the kitchen. Love it. John's scones are the best.
Sunday night, John and I went to Denver with our friends Sam & Amanda for an Over The Rhine concert. It was A-MAZING and I enjoyed it immensely! John loves OTR but I'd never heard them until that night!  Wow. My inaugural experience was super. And The Soiled Dove? That place was fabulous!
We also pulled out the pool for one last summer dip (forgot to take pics), went to a Camp Rock 2 premiere party, watched movies and some football, lazed around, did some cleaning, finished up a few projects and just enjoyed being together. I guess summer is "officially" over now, and I'm a little sad, but I'm excited about fall! It's my second favorite season. Now, don't let me catch any of you guys wearing white shoes until next Easter, okay? :)

Here's to a short week, peeps!

Thank you for issuing the shoe alert. I meant to do that this morning but got distracted by my roots.

Thank the good Lord that I no longer own any white shoes. Or white hosiery. Shudder!

I often wished that people here spoke pig latin instead of Portuguese. It would make my life so much easier.

I literally went and hid all of Matt's linen pants. He doesn't adhere to after Labor Day fashion rules. Thankfully, we don't own white shoes!
