My Daily Ramblings...

We had some GREAT weather today! It's been raining and raining for the past week and the kids were getting restless. Finally, the clouds parted and the sun shone down upon us. What a blessing! After Sophia's morning nap, I collected the children and we escaped to the park. It was a really nice day and the kids had a nice time. Poor Isaac didn't want to leave even after 2 hours! Everyone else was feeling the heat by then and he was out-voted.LOL I love this park because it has lots of shade for me and the baby. She really enjoyed watching all the excitement and I can tell that it won't be long before she's off and running too. Here are some photos of the excursion...

Well, that's it. We're hot, tired, and one of us is napping.LOL On our way home from the park, we passed by Grandma G's house and found her about to mow. Jon offered to mow for her and whipped that out while we visited. Afterwards, he offered to stick around and help with any odd jobs. He's such a great guy! I'm sure that he's working hard and I'm blessed that he's my son.

Blessings,

Lisa

What a great park. We don't have any parks close enough to walk, but our school has a nice playground, we just have to wait until school is out to go!

Love the face Sophia is making! What a character.

Great park day! I can already tell that I'm going to wish I had taken time to go to the park more often when my kiddos were little... as my oldest dd keeps saying.. there's still time with the little one!

That's a great play structure! Everything out here seems to be plastic.

I love Sophia's face! LOL

LOL Yep, it's a great park! That was only half of the park that I photographed. It's huge and has lots for all sizes to do.

I loved the stinky face.LOL She's been giving that to us lately whenever our service is not to her satisfaction.LOL

Our rain finally gave way to the sunny skies too. We are back up to 90 degrees today but I JUST HEARD the weather report on the radio and they are calling for a cool down on Friday. I wonder how cool it will get??

Lisa,

It's such a relief to get out after days of rain, isn't it? Your gang looked like they really enjoyed it! I hope they all sleep well tonight!

That looks like a fun park. Love the "stinky" expression on Sophia's face!

Jon is a good boy to mow for G'ma and help out.
