enjoying the company of each other

today we went to a local where my parents took us when we were little girls. there is a pond/lake-ish type thing, swings, teeter-totters, a giant climbing apparatus, tennis courts, a shelter for picnicing, and a wide open soccer field. we had a fabulous time. it was the first time in a long time that mr. husband has been off of work for more than 12 hours at a time...we've really been enjoying each other...all of us. mr. husband and i sort of naturally switched off with the kids, as they changed interests at the park...i played with them on the swings and he took them to the soccer field to kick the giant tennis ball we brought. little sammysosa had a great time between the merry-go-round and the swings. he giggled his little heart out.

captain adventure and sammysosa sharing a snack on the merry-go-round

finally a peaceful brother-sister moment.

mr. husband teaching little mother hen and captain adventure how to throw rocks the right way. (as if CA needs help with throwing anything!)
we all really had a great time with each other. i can actually say that i really enjoyed my family today. yay for us!

Aww, I remember that park. I think that's the same merry-go-round that was there when were little. And that pond/lake-ish thing? I still have nightmares about it.
