Celebrate This Week - What's Fun?

Join us each weekend for Celebrate This Week with Ruth Ayres.

When we pause to celebrate, we find the joy.
Discover. Play. Build. 

   A week filled with moments to celebrate and remember.

Thanks, Ruth, for this morning's reflection of time spent with Sam, your resident early riser.  I like the idea of deciding what we want to be busy doing.  Today's post includes fun from the past week as well as fun that I'm anticipating!
  • Being reunited with Mister Jack after his first trip  (He was gone for ten days!)
  • Jack's first ferry ride and some pre-4th of July fun with Will's family
  • Pics of Teddy enjoying the 4th in Utah with Grandma Barb, Aunt Amy, and Mom

  • A belated birthday celebration with friends - good food, gentle breezes, a shady dining spot, and book conversations
  • Watching Grandpa and Jack read together
  • Reading picture books before bed  (A big thanks to my blogging friends whose recommendations fill my holds shelf at the library and keep my picture book basket full!)
  • Waking up to bird songs at 6 am instead of 4 am
  • Anticipating Island Celebration today and Jack's first parade
  • Anticipating our book club's annual summer gathering at Shannon's place (There's something magical about our summer discussion that includes spouses and friends, dinner, and discussion with views of the lake and Mt. Rainer.)
  • Anticipating time with Teddy, Stefi, and Blake at a cabin in Park City


  1. What a fun week! Jack is adorable! Your book club summer gathering sounds like a fun way to celebrate!

  2. It sounds like you have a busy schedule of enjoying friends and family alike! That book club meeting sounds delightful!

  3. Ramona, I just love watching you smile when you are around your grandboys. It sounds like your celebrations were filled with good "busy" times. Continue to have a great week filled with more good times.

  4. Such a cute and wonderful family. I can't resist to smile with the baby's cuteness! Internet specials at Disciples Message TB Joshua
