Mondays can be rough around here. Usually the kids are a bit grouchy and tired from the weekend, and I am not always ready to begin the week either! This past Monday was SO different though. The weather was picture perfect, everyone was in a swell mood so we decide to take advantage of it!
Walker and I are working on the letter "B" this week, so we made our own bubble mixture and blew come BIG BUBBLES. It was so much fun. I really loved seeing all of his excitement over what he made!
after lunch, we headed outside with our blanket and literally just played for about 2 hours. I've never done this with my kids, usually have the day too planned-up or I just don't set-aside the time to relax with them outside. It was A-mazing!
Hollywood loves her glasses - about 10 seconds at a time!
we cuddled, wrestled, played, giggled, counted airplanes, threw a ball, crunched up leaved, smiled and really just soaked in the afternoon. I don't know why I haven't done this more often because I received such a huge blessing from my kiddos on this Monday.
Walker was convinced that he was going to take a nap outside. I convinced him that he could nap in his own bed, so he agreed to just "re-wax" on the blanket.
these two really do love each other
and I really love them too.
Here's to more Mondays where I soak in my blessings, and less Mondays where I take them for granted!
