First things first - how do you like my new glasses?
I wish Mother’s Day was during the week and not on a Sunday. It would really work for us, because we seem to fight more on the weekends than during the week when everyone is busy.
As my friend Sarah said in her #ippp post for this week: “This is my life. The potential for greatness or disaster.” Truer words have never been spoken, my friends - and this Mother’s Day we walked the fine line between greatness and disaster.
Not enough play and too much work makes for a cranky family - so we decided it’s time to introduce Family Fun Day Sunday.
We did two so far - nobody cried and nobody puked - and that counts as a win in my book.
Mix a grumpy, back-and-knee-pain-ridden father, a stressed-out-worry-about-everything mother, a teenage daughter and a genius-yet-super-sensitive pre-teen in the mix and there are usually tears and vomit involved - but not this time, people! We are making this count!
Our first outing went to Harmon Lake and along Kane Valley Road - here are some pics:
