Sometimes family fun time means doing stuff that otherwise isn't all that spectacular, except that you're doing whatever it is with the people you love.
Today, Chris got a hair cut and then we went to look at some houses that we have no intention of buying.
On the way back home we made a very important stop for a pack of SweetTarts. Well...really it was to use the facilities in a gas station since we have a newly panty-wearing little person in our family, but getting some SweetTarts to share made the stop way more fun!
After lunch came the glory that is nap time (in which I also took part), followed by snack time. Today we had ice cream sandwiches, and I'm pretty sure the kids thought that meant it was a holiday of some kind. :)
We've just come back in from playing outside together, and I got one of those gooey feelings where I think, "I know this time doesn't last forever." I am so thankful that we get to hang out together, and beyond that, that I know how special family time is. No...that doesn't mean that everyday, all the time feels lovey and sparkly. It just means that there were a few moments today that felt that way, and I love it.
