Tis the month to
So I am hopping on the GRATITUDE wagon and going to dedicate all my November posts to something I am grateful for in my life. (plus, I am all out of blogging motivation so this should get me moving.)
I am GRATEFUL for sunday drives!
With two kids under two (why do I feel so brave just saying that?), it has become a necessity to get out of the house often. Especially on Sunday's after the kids have been cooped up at church for 3 hours (and let's be honest...us too!).
It usually makes for a much more pleasant day if we can do something together as a family...outside where we can run free!
Yesterday we found a new spot down in a riverbed. It was paradise for a two year old.
Glistening white sand.
Concrete flood levees. Perfect for hiking up and running down.
Trees for playing hide and seek.
And an occasional dirt biker (but that ruins the ambiance I am trying to create for you)
It really was the fanciest riverbed I've ever played in.
We had a blast.
I coerced Jack into walking up the levee, then coerced Troy into letting us run down insisting that it would be fine. Well, sure enough, Jack faceplanted into the sand at the bottom. I was still insisting that he was fine. Then he lifted his face and looked up at his protective father with his mouth wide open and tongue hanging out all plastered with sand. Uh-oh. I was busted!
It was still a great day. And there is no better close to a great day than arriving back home with two exhausted kids!
Ode to the Sabbath drive!
