Ditched the busy day and took some time to relax. Went on a nice family walk, did the lunch thing outside, shared a milkshake with my favorite man… also did a little house work….
This s’more made by one of our youth kids is a perfect description for how awesome our bonfire was tonight. Teens are amazing and when you invest in them you get a good return. Want a change of perspective? Spend some time with the young people in your life. They funny too.
Great Idea: see Adam for lunch and take a walk to the park
Not Great Idea: carry baby in your arms instead of taking the stroller
Also Not Great Idea: in addition to heavy baby, have heavy backpack diaper bag on
Best Idea: enjoy the time you can find to be together as a family
Adam and I took Victor to the park for the first time! We just walked around the paved walking trail they have, but it felt nice to be out about in the sunshine for a little while. I really haven’t been as active as I like, for obvious reasons, so I’m really really really looking forward to being more back to myself and getting active again!
The important things in life are at times ugly. They’re not worth posting about on Facebook, they’re not decorative or fancy. I try to keep into perspective that these seemingly boring tasks are important and necessary. I will lie down for sleep with a smile because an important, boring, dirty, spider infested task was completed today. Adam started and finished the difficult task of moving our shed, mostly on his own. He spent his day off shoveling a whole lot of gravel and teaching a few music lessons in between! More pretty, decorative, fancy, exciting projects are in our future, but we can’t help but do first things first. [Andrew and Bob and Heidi and Uncle Rob were all amazing humans today.]
I went fishing. I caught fish. I baited my own hook. I KISSED A FISH!! There are things that scare us or make us nervous but if we just tried it we might find its not so bad. I’m not going to say fishing is my new favorite outdoor activity, but I can now enjoy one of my husband’s favorite outdoor activities!
^^ first fish is ever caught: a blue gill
