Today was a beautiful day, despite the threat of rain and hail and all things weather bad.
Church was good. A message I hoped my husband had heard. A message I hope to remember.
Then the kids and I played rambunctiously at the park for quite a long time. I even played with other people's kids. I kept wondering if it was strange for a grown woman to be playing with kids, while all the other adults sat around looking bored or waiting patiently for their little one to have the little fun and then get to go home.
I was sitting there too for just a few minutes and then I figured I'd rather be alive and grab the day! And that is what I did.
I compete on the swings with the other kids.
Such delight. I laughed and felt like I was a little girl again. I could almost hear what I would sound like as a little child having fun. That was rather strange.
Then the chasing of tag with all the kids. I told them, it wasn't fair to try to chase an old woman as I ran away! They assured me, that I was NOT old and would be tagged! Hahaha the fun of it!
I played until I wanted an oxygen mask.
My kids loved it.
They tell me how awesome it is and that they love playing with me.
I'm usually the parent, helping, teaching, disciplining and now I WILL make every effort to have fun with my babies. Just PLAY.
Then it was home. On the way it was wonderful music to be deaf to, since it was so loud. Everyone singing their hearts out! And lunch being discussed.
We took the long way home. We have had a blessed day.
After a few hours at home, they wanted to go bike riding. Why yes of course mommy will indulge. There is never too much play with little ones.
I do declare it was fun! We took different routes and definitely had some mini adventures!
Hope y'all had a great weekend.
I'll come visit all on the linky as time allows.
