No matter how good our intention, it's often difficult to focus on having fun with the kiddos
when little chores cry out for this one thing and that quick fix and one last... whatever.
Tooooo many distractions. Period. And getting out the driveway is a great way for us to pour all our
energy into distraction-less fun!
Today we needed to split and stack more firewood,
Our leaky shower needed fixing,
Laundry is piled high in the living room needing to be folded and put away...
But we left it all for a picnic at the lake.
Let me tell you! It was fre e e e e ezing cold down there by the lake
and so windy I had to turn into the wind to take a bite of my sandwich -
but then my knuckles got so cold I thought it might be worth eating the
hair in my face to take bites with my back to the wind.
I advised whomever suggested our picnic to choose a warmer day in future!
We later took a drive up to the ski resort village and it was sunny
(and warm even) up on the mountain. I definitely caught Spring Fever while we were out :-)
What a grand way to spend a day together!
I can't really say I missed stacking firewood,
or folding laundry
and I'm perfectly willing to take baths this week instead of showers
if this is the trade ;-)
I think it's looking like a good tradition!
