Scenes from the weekend

Aren't weekends wonderful? This one was especially nice, a good mix of productive and fun. We spent it: playing at the beach, baking {and eating} some very festive cupcakes, watching the Opening Ceremony of the Olympics {plus plenty of swimming, tennis, cycling and gymnastics, too}, skyping with Nanny, cleaning the house, picking peas from the garden, eating burgers and corn-on-the-cob and ice cream with the cousins on my aunt's sundeck, and listening, enraptured, to a few more chapters of Harry Potter.

 Oh-so-festive cupcakes for the Opening Ceremony of the London Olympics {I used this recipe and it was delicious}

Our Olympics picnic {notice the colour scheme?}

I love introducing my boys to the magic of Harry Potter

We have lots of plans for the week ahead. I'm especially looking forward to dinner out at a Japanese restaurant downtown with some old friends, and an afternoon at Beaver Lake with Amanda and her boys. What are you up to this week?

  3. It looks like you had a blast! The Olympics picnic was a super idea. I hope you have a great week. The teachers returned to work today, and the kids' first day of school will be Friday, so it looks like our week will be action packed. :)

    1. Thanks, Faiza! I was thrilled with them. They tasted way better than cake mix cake. Couldn't believe it!

    1. It's Esquimalt Lagoon. The sand has been perfect for castles lately.
