Weekend Moments: Spring in the Country

 This weekend was such a treat.
The husband is on a snowboarding trip to Whistler with his buddies, so I spent the weekend with my parents at their peaceful home out in the country.

Saturday morning was misty and magical, and then the sun came out and brought 20 degree weather with it. What a change from up north!
Spring greens and flowers were popping up all over the place.

There was new life everywhere, including this little guy, only 6 weeks old!

We enjoyed our first al fresco dining of the year.
My mom came up with these incredible little lemon-raspberry and creme-fraiche desserts. 
It almost felt like summer.

Each morning, I watched the sun rise over our beloved mountain.
There's nothing more peaceful than being in the country.

I hope you had a beautiful weekend.

It seems that we were experiencing the same kind of beautiful spring weekend, but yours seems just a bit more lovely. Maybe being in the country with your parents is why. Thank you for sharing all of these lovely images. Glad you are having such a wonderful visit!
