A Relaxing Sunday

Packed up the kids (and my frazzled nerves) and headed out to my parent's place on Sunday morning. Needed a change of scenery and to get away from everything. Had a wonderful time and feel like I recharged my batteries and topped up my patience. The 2 hour drive out there was nice and relaxing too. We had the highway pretty much to ourselves and I snapped lot's of pretty pictures along the way.

The kids spent the whole day outside golfing, swinging, running around, eating ice cream, chasing the dog, playing at the park and just having a wonderful time. They were so busy playing that they barely paid any attention to ME! I got to really unwind for the first time in a couple of months. It was a much needed break let me tell you! My mom refused to let me do any cooking or cleaning and ordered me to just sit and relax. Sit and relax? What's that?! Took me awhile to remember what that was!

Just before supper, my little man fell asleep on me and had a cozy little nap. It's rare to have him sit still in one place for so long. It was nice. :)

I didn't get many pictures of my girls - they were too busy having fun! But here's my sister's pug Miso. She thinks she's one of the kids. :)

The day went by too fast as usual. Next time we'll have to stay longer. Thanks for the wonderful time you guys! ;)

Today the kids are back to their usual routine of fighting, whining and assuming I'm their personal slave. The hubby was grumpy because I slept in too late and didn't serve him breakfast. I haven't had a shower yet and the dishes are piling up. But you know what? I don't even care. :)
