Some Scenes From The Weekend...

The entire weekend was a bit of an exercise in letting go, from a little family photo session on Friday (what is it with taking family photos that sends my crew into such a tizzy?) to our location-challenged (but ultimately really successful) tinyDallas art event on Saturday to dealing with two decidedly grumpy, tantrum-prone girlies for the better part of Sunday... Let's just say I had ample opportunity to practice yoga breathing and embrace zen parenting.
But despite the stress I felt in the immediate moment(s), it was a good two days. We managed to eek out some learning in the chaos, some laughing in the mishap, some calm after the storm... so all was not lost.
And to further lick our wounds, we dug into a Sunday family dinner of Bryan's (awesome) homemade macaroni and cheese, some really excellent grilled chicken and perhaps the best Brussels sprouts I have ever turned out (I sauteed them in brown butter and then tossed them with a little soy sauce...), so we went out on a high note for sure.
