The Best of Weekends

 Thankfully the June!Photo a day challenge picture for today is the "best part of the weekend". Too easy. I could have posted any number of family pictures I took.Though some did have even more ridiculous expressions than Tim's in the one above. The best part of any day for me is family. Even if I didn't stay at home this weekend, it still would have been about family because we would have travelled to Wellington for our niece's baby shower. Tim's work roster didn't allow travel this weekend and it is probably best to wait until after the baby has arrived before heading over there, it is a big trip.

 I took the girls for a play in the park with their cousins. I love the park which is dedicated to all things wool related. The uprights on the swings look like huge knitting pins and there is a playhouse which is like a shearing shed. Very cute. It was busy today too which is good for the local businesses.

Lastly a picture of our table after the light started to fade. The stylists at Country Style, Donna Hay and other gorgeous magazines have nothing to worry about from me but I liked it anyway. There is something a bit special about dining outdoors.

Sunday soup night tonight. We are having Cauliflower, potato and blue cheese soup which was in a freebie Donna Hay magazine my Mum gave me. It isn't ready yet but almost.

Hi Tracy,

Your weekend with family looks so enjoyable.

The table delightful and it's what you enjoy, the little things that make you happy.
