Since it finally stopped raining around here (I know, I know, I’m like a broken record), we’ve been getting outside, thank God!
Yesterday I went for a 2.5 mile run in the park and it was heaven. The park was packed with people reading on blankets and throwing Frisbees with their dogs and kids playing and as I ran two long loops around, I smiled at everyone enjoying the gorgeous day.
So, since the kids were out of school today I decided we would get out together too.
We drove to a local area that has nature trails and despite some protesting at first of just going to see “trees and bugs and leaves and stuff”, I think the kids had a good time…
And I KNOW I did.
Then, after our walk the kids and I ate McD’s (oh my gah, I cannot believe I just admitted that) and then we ventured to the local ice cream shop for cones for the kids (I only helped K with hers because it was so big), thus cancelling out the walking.
Oh well, it was a good day. 🙂
p.s. I took ALL of these photos with my phone. Pretty handy when you’re hiking, etc. I would hate to trip while wearing my DSLR and mess it up! These phones are pretty darn cool these days… 😉
