For the first time in many months, we have stayed local all weekend (except for the bit when I was working but I didn’t have my camera so that doesn’t really count). We normally get to Sunday and want to have a family adventure, to go exploring somewhere new or to revisit an old favourite. After a late night at work last night, I really didn’t want to go out all day. Both kids had friends over so we spent the day being almost homebodies.
We did wander to a nearby park to see a play for the kids and have a picnic but after that we wandered back home to continue the theme of doing as little as possible. Whilst I was more than happy to spend all day indoors, the kids weren’t so happy to oblige. Girl-child and her friends grabbed a bucket of chalk and wandered over the road to draw on a path in the park.
I eventually wandered over to check on them only to be met with barrages of “I’m hungry!” so I made another picnic for the girls to enjoy.
Once the picnic was all spread out on the rug, girl-child decided that the picnic basket would make a delightful hat!
The girls enjoyed an afternoon in the park, the boys hid from me most of the day so they could play wii and I did very little. For a change, Sunday has truly been a day of rest, I must remember to do lots of nothing more often.
