the weekend.

"There aren't enough days in the weekend." ~ Rod Schmidt

Ah, the weekend. Two days of pure bliss. Saturdays full of going place to place, grocery shopping, and bedroom tidying.

This weekend was filled with not only the joy that every weekend brings, but also the excitement of a birthday. Caleb turned eleven on Saturday. It's hard to believe that he's already eleven. I can still remember the day he was born, it was thrilling to become a "big sister."

We started the day off with- what else? Presents.

Josiah wrapped his first present-just for Caleb. It made me smile.

After that, we made our way to the bagel shop for breakfast. The smells of coffee and bagels spilled deliciously out of the cafe as we sat outside enjoying the breeze and the chirping of birds.

The rest of the morning and afternoon was spent enjoying everything that is the weekend. When evening finally came, we piled into the car and drove to the movie theater. Caleb wanted to see Mr. Popper's Penguins, which was actually pretty hilarious, although some of the humor was more the type that ten year old boys would adore, that being said, my brothers loved it.

Then came Sunday, one of my favorite days of the week. There is nothing more refreshing then hearing God's word preached faithfully every Sunday morning by our pastor. After church, our grandparents, uncle, and cousin came over for lunch and cake.

It was a wonderful weekend, and I'm so thankful for the breath of fresh air that we get at the end of every week.
