I'm exhausted just typing this, no wonder it exhausts me to go on a family outing.
So in actuality my Saturdays are usually filled with intentions. I intend to do something as a family at the same time I intend to relax doing it, I also intend to prepare my family for Sunday (baths, clothes picked out, bed on time), I also intend to catch up on Laundry, and I intend on having long meaningful talks with my husband who I miss during the week, I also intend on running a few errands WITHOUT the children, and of course I intend on spending the day laughing and dancing through flowers with my children. Oh and I forgot to throw in Preston's 2 naps and the strange idea I have in my head that I want to take a nap too, I mean it is Saturday so anything is possible right?...
My goodness, I have high hopes and expectations don't I? Well, I usually head to Sunday feeling slightly disappointed, like I didn't get something on my list accomplished. I mean I'm lucky if I even get 2 of the things done on my long list of: "How to have the Perfect Family".
This past Saturday went a little differently.
-I got to have my meaningful conversation with my Husband, while folding laundry.
- I got to lay in bed until 8:30 (that's like taking a nap) - My husband made $40, donating plasma (Superproductive)
-I got to sit outside and watch my monsters run around on the street. -I got to run to 2 stores (Preston has grown and needs some clothes)
- I came home to a newly cleaned and vacuumed living room
& Then at 3:30 we decided to pack up a Picnic Dinner and head to a Park.
Knowing how I post, you guys are probably waiting for me to talk about what went wrong or how I screwed up somewhere. Not today! This Saturday was an excellent example of how things can go when the planets aline to the schedule of the Wehrmeister's.
The kids had a blast, Adam had a blast, and I got to enjoy it. Nothing could have made it better. So here are a few pictures of what perfection looks like. I finally got my Saturday.
