a spring weekend

On this, the first weekend of spring, we spent some time recuperating. (please, NO MORE sickness until after our trip, at least!) We took a few walks, some around the neighborhood, some at the nearby park, in the glorious spring weather.

We had friends over to celebrate the coming of spring.

We cooked together, cornmeal blueberry pecan pancakes, the best pancakes I've eaten in ages.

And we enjoyed some of the first asparagus of the season.

We played outside, enjoying the warm sunshine...

even as the sunshine left.


  1. Oh you are killing me with those cookies! That is A LOT of cookies! Looks like you all had the same lovely weather we did, glad to see you enjoyed it!

  2. Those pancakes and cookies look good! What a wonderful day, sweet photos.
