Picnic in the Park
Yesterday started out like any other day! We schooled in the morning, did chores, and then I had to take Greg to a valet job over at Southwest Research. Fortunately, it was a short job and he was finished by 2pm.
It was such a beautiful day that we decided to pack a picnic dinner and take the kids to the park! The little ones had been asking, for some time now, to have a picnic and we knew this would be the perfect day to do so! I made grinders (my HUGE sub sandwich with EVERYTHING on it) and then just packed some crackers and a variety of drinks. I loaded up the ice chest while Greg went to pick Cheyenne up from work.
When they got home, we headed for the park.
We walked there to extend our time in the beautiful sunshine! We ate as soon as we arrived. The meal was simple, but yummy! Then, the kids had fun playing and climbing trees. Even Mom joined in on the fun.....I spent some time on the swings where Sophia got a kick out of the "spider"! She laughed and laughed as we swung together! Then some of us formed a train and slid down the twisty slide......what a blast. Greg kept Ethan occupied over at the baby swings. He loves swings! He giggled every time he felt that tickle in his belly! It was a perfect evening!
When we were all worn out, we walked home and enjoyed some fresh baked Banana Bread that Celeste had made before we went to the park. It was still warm and scrumptious!
What a perfect ending to a wonderful day!
This morning, on the other hand, has begun with an explosive, leaking poopy diaper. Wow! Good feeling gone.
Thank you, Lord, for giving us good days and not-so-good days, for we know each day with our family is a gift from you!
