The weekend was a flurry of activity. Nan Nan came to visit, there were family birthdays to celebrate, Ezra's first soccer game (and first goal!), a quick trip to Cincinnati and little periods of rest and relaxation between.
Nan and her husband Roscoe brought a big box of green beans for us which the boys spent hours breaking and stringing with them. The beans are now tucked away in the freezer for the year to come.
