Takin' It Easy

I didn't lie. I stayed home all day long. This is the first time I've done this in....uh....a few months? It was wonderful!

It was a warm, sunny day, so the kidlets and I spent several hours outside. It was so nice to spend some quality time with them! I even got a chance to read a few chapters of my new book, while the kids played. There is just something so relaxing about reading a book under the warm sun.

Grant didn't get home until later, so I let the kids pick what they wanted for dinner. Pizza and Ice Cream Cake. I indulged them, and Lexie was filthy by the time she finished! After a bath and a cartoon, they headed off to bed.

I love quiet days at home, with my family. I love them even more when it's beautiful outside!

  9. Glad to hear you took it easy. We all need to do that sometimes! I know personally as a wife and mom I have pretty high expectations and sometimes you just need to give yourself a break! Have a great weekend.
