Sometimes I forget that it doesn't take much to make for good memories and quality time together as a family. The other weekend we went to the little downtown by us and walked around by the river, got some pastries from the bakery and went to a park. It was easy, and so enjoyable. The next afternoon we spent an hour and a half at the pool. Both kids were happy and it was so much fun. This summer has felt hard with figuring out how to navigate and do things with two kids, balance time as a family, Chris' work, attempting to get times for ourselves, and take care of any other responsibilities. Sometimes I forget how easy it is to find joy in smaller moments, and that a really great two hours can make up for exhausting nights, tantrums, and seasons of transitions.
Life is good.
