A Simple Day

Here's the deal.
We are busy.
We don't allow the kids to be overscheduled, but there are 6 of us. Just factor in school and homework and our days practically fly by. So when we get a simple day, we savor it.

This simple day was nothing more than going to the park. Some bikes, a soccer ball and ice cream.

What more could a person need?

Honestly, I did a lot of sitting. It was warm and sunny. Hubby was taking the kids 1 or 2 at a time out on their bikes. And I just wanted to soak it in.

A few hours with nowhere to be.
A few hours to watch my babies interact.
I won't lie, there was a little crying over ice cream, but it couldn't ruin the day.

What a beautiful afternoon.
Not fancy, but just what I needed.

Definitely lots of splendorous things going on in these pictures.. makes me want to go grab the first kid I see and fly a kite or something! Such sweet memories those simple days make in our lives. You will look back on these pics and savor them more than the big planned "to dos".
