Back when I went on retreat a month ago or so, the idea that we can have a fun day without other day-to-day obligations getting in the way was brought up during one of the discussions. I decided to schedule such a day for the kids, since sometimes it feels like I am always saying 'not today' to whatever it is they want to do.
They got to pick everything we did that day...from which park we went to, to what was in their picnic lunch, to if they even took a nap (which after playing at this park, was unavoidable)!
There was a specific request to have the picnic in the boat play area. These two cuties really enjoyed the bubbly lemonade I surprised them with.
We also went to Chick-fil-a for dinner and played with a friend at another park later in the day. Rose didn't want to go to sleep that night because she didn't want the fun day to be over.
