Weekend Snippets

We had a pretty fun and eventful weekend!  Johnny and I (with the help from some talented friends) played on our local late night comedy show on Friday night.  The girls even got to come along and watch, thanks to some of our amazing friends.  

On Saturday we hit up an art festival, spent some time relaxing in the park, and in the evening I took the girls to see the Cinderella ballet.  It was really beautiful.  Hope enjoyed every little bit of it, but being a 3 year old and having an already full weekend, Poesy spent most of her attention span in the first half.  It was still a really good time, and one of those things we don't get to do very often.

On Sunday, Hope had her very first piano recital.  I could tell she was nervous (you can see the nerves all over her in the photo above), but she held it together very well and did a wonderful job on her songs.  I think the first of anything is usually the scariest, and now that she knows what to expect it should be a little easier next time.  I was just proud of her for doing it!  I would've been scared out of my mind as a kid.  I was not brave in the least.

What did you do this weekend?  Whatever it was, I hope you got a little relaxation time in!  Happy Monday!  xo. Katie

  1. Wow, Hope really looks scared and concentrated, but being a talented girl that she is, I can only imagine how good she did! Beautiful snippets!

  2. That's so wonderful. Are you all musically inclined in your family? I started my son on the violin, mostly because I'm biased, being a violinist myself, but I've always loved the piano (sadly I don't have the coordination). Singing was always a passion, but again, no talent. Lol. Hope looks so serious (I guess that's her nervous face?). Glad her first recital went well. :)

  8. I remember when I was 8 that I had my first recital as well... I even cried playing piano cause I had been mistaken once or twice... I was so disappointed not being perfect! Fortunately I've learnt with time that the most important is to try and not always to succeed... congratulations to Hope, I'm sure she was great. :) bisous!

  12. Awwww, well done, Hope! We went to a nice, relaxed baptism for the daughter of a good friend. It was lovely for Henry to spend some time with other kids and we had some gorgeous weather.

  14. Hope is adorable! I love her little ice cream cone dress. I was always terrified at piano recitals, even when I was in college! Hopefully she enjoyed it and it made it all worth it. :)
