Girls Weekend

Spent my weekend just me and my little one since my honey was out at Soundtown.    We played at the park and the library.  We painted butterflies and our nails.  It was lovely.  Here are a few highlights:

First stop: LibraryPainting is a special treat because I almost never want to do messy crafts, but a girls’ weekend seemed just the right time to throw a drop cloth down “just in case” and let her paint.

My mom buys these workbooks for Ladybug, and she actually really likes to try to write letters.  She’s in such a hurry to do anything that seems grown up.   I’m happy to help her whenever she wants, but we keep it very laid back.   If she just wants to scribble, that’s okay. It wouldn’t be a girls’ weekend without a game of Candy Land. :)

The highlight of the weekend for Ladybug was playing at the park with her friend.

The soundtrack for the weekend was provided by Wonderground Radio, which is non-commercial music for families from Minnesota Public Radio.   It is a great compromise between kid-music and parent-music without alienating either generation.  We love it.

We had a great weekend, but we’re glad to have Chad/Papa back.  In addition to seeing some great live music and camping at the festival, he was there representing Free Arts Minnesota, which is a nonprofit organization dedicated to using the power of art to transform lives.  It is a good cause, and they are looking for volunteers… :)

That was our weekend. How was yours?
