Weekend Pics and Good Reads

Good morning! The time change is pretty great over here. I love it being light out later and Emme waking up at 6:30 instead of 5:30 even though Emme didn’t get the memo to sleep until 6:30 again today. Near-80 degree weather has made it seem like summer this weekend. I’ll take it!

Some pics from our marvelous weekend (linking up with Marvelous in My Monday over at Healthy Diva Eats):

Dear Society: Boys Can Cry Too – Reece has sometimes been saying things like “ninjas don’t cry” lately (in case you haven’t heard, he’s totally a ninja). I’m not sure where he’s getting it from, but I am trying to counteract it by telling him that it’s normal for people to cry when they’re sad and that everyone cries sometimes.
