Day of Rest

We take the notion that Sunday should be a day of rest very seriously around here. Well, let me rephrase that, the kids and I take it very seriously from about 1:00pm on. Todd is always working late on Sunday's, so the four of us take advantage of his absence to do....well....pretty much nothing.

Last fall we started a new tradition: Sunday night picnics. Sometimes we join friends, but most nights it is just us four, and after our winter hiatus, Sunday night picnics are back with a vengeance.

I usually let the kids pick the park and food of their choice, and we have a blast.

We hug our brothers and wrestle in the grass.

We cheat and get a head start at races.

We delight in the giggles of the youngest on the swing.

We don't worry about laundry or dishes or messy rooms awaiting us at home.
We go.
We play.
We rest.


  1. I LOVE the swing pic....I can hear the giggles from here! Awesome!

  2. I love this idea!! I think it's fabulous and I just might steal it :). Soak in these precious moments while you can. I love picnics!
