Weekending with Sam and Charlie.

Well, whew! and thank goodness for iPhones. This video - 38 of my favorite (video'd) seconds from the 48 hours Sam and Charlie were with us - shows you how much fun we had.

And this morning, as I sorted through all the photos, I noted a few more things:

The boys play really well ... together and on their own. And it was wonderful to see Marc join in, too. (He did not play golf all weekend. thank goodness!) Charlie has grown up a lot in the 13 months since he and I spent Tuesdays together. Some is certainly just his age (he's 3-1/2 now), but I think it's also being a big brother. It suits him.

Meal times are a Big Deal ... these boys love to eat!
Sam's "lovey" is a drill. He carries it everywhere, even to the dinner table!

Not gonna lie - these two moments from Friday evening were most welcome. (especially because Saturday morning arrived before 5 am.)
yep, the drill goes to bed with him, too
It was also nice to see their parents yesterday morning. They all stayed for brunch to celebrate Mother's Day and my mom joined us. Four generations all together is very special (as is getting five smiles on all five faces).

The rest of Sunday was back to typical, with naps, FaceTime with Sara, a little TV and early bedtime.   We were ready for it!

  1. I love everything about this post! I can hardly believe the boys have grown so much (even though I know that does tend to happen!), and enjoy seeing Marc play with trains and that watching the oven is still a valued form of entertainment. And the drill as lovey is absolutely wonderful! I'm glad that all of you had such a great weekend and thank you for sharing!

  3. It certainly looks like everyone had a great time! (But I bet you might still be a little tired...) Drill as a lovey is hysterical! Dancing Sam, watching the oven, playing trains. All such fun! That is a great ending photo of you, your Mom, Katie and the boys. What a wonderful picture.

  4. My favorite things? Marc playing trains with the boys -- and the golfing!!! Oh, yeah . . . the golfing!!! :-) It looks like a great weekend all around. So busy -- and so fun; filled with love. Thanks for sharing, Mary. XO
    (And the drill. Oh, my. You just never know what kids will connect with. My sister's "lovey" was a cardboard puzzle piece with Humpty-Dumpty's face on it. My mom lived in fear of its getting wet. . . ) :-)

  12. Boys being boys! How fun, so cute! How wonderful the boys are so comfortable with you and Marc and they enjoy their time with you both. I love the picture of you, your mom, Katie and the boys, all of you together. 1 Sec a Day is the perfect way to share your weekend of fun!
