Mr. Man's Birthday was on Friday; since Harvest was still in the works (we just finished last night -hurrah!), we didn't have much of a celebration.  Yummy's gift was his favourite part of the day, because she was so excited to give it to him.  I asked her to wait until he'd gotten a cup of coffee and sat down so he wouldn't be overwhelmed right away in the morning, and she was visibly vibrating from the anticipation as she waited patiently for him to do that.  

I love the idea of having a Summer Bucket List -the season is so very short here and there are so many things I want to do with my kids.  Having those ideas posted on my fridge reminds me to find the time and just do them!  And it is a list, so of course I can't resist.  I created this template last summer, but prettied it up a bit this year for maximum list-making enjoyment.

The sun is out and the birds are singing!  Here is a free printable to honour our first warm-ish spring days.

It is a beautiful day and I'm spending most of it outside; it feels like forever since the sun has shone so warmly and we are all SO ready for it. The kids have buckets cups and shovels for some serious water play on the deck.  I think we've had four wardrobe changes already, but I don't care!  It's great to see them having such a wonderful time outside together.  I put up an old board across the steps so Dooter doesn't fall down; I can watch them from the kitchen window while I get supper going.
Happy weekend!  Enjoy the sun!
