Today is hubby and my 6th wedding anniversary. Hubby and my … is that correct grammar? Anyway … I thought it would be nice to spend time as a family. This morning, all four of us went to Old Navy and Wal-Mart to get little Miss A
va some back-to-school pants and a lunch bag. We ended up with 2 dresses, 3 pairs of pants, 2 tee shirts, 2 long sleeve tees, knee socks (because she just HAS to wear those with her jumpers … the look is way too cute) and a new knapsack plus a matching lunch bag that snaps attaches to the outside of her knapsack. It’s too adorable. She is so excited about school and I have to admit, it was a lot of fun to go shopping with her while she was bursting with pleasure.
We also took the kids to McDonald’s for lunch. I was very good and only had three french fries with a wee bit of ketchup. I waited until we got home to eat my Jenny Craig. I am determined to have lost 30 lbs total by my cousin’s wedding in November. I can do it. I will do it.
Then, because I am a sucker for more family time we took the children swimming. The water was quite chilly (it was an outdoor pool and not heated). Once we were in it was a good time. The kids only lasted an hour; Travis (2.5 years old) took 30 minutes of that hour to get into the water and was shivering for most of the time. At least we didn’t have to pay for him to get in.
The children don’t normally have naps but they are both passed out on the couch and I’m debating waking them after 45 minutes of sleep or let them have a full nap and suffer with a late-night of cuddling. Hmm … it is nice to have some quiet time and I could work on the quilt ….
