On through the woods and to the top end of the reservoir. Here I took the easy route -
The girls the more interesting and challenging one -
It was a particularly nice walk because the girls were nice. Anyone who has children knows there are good days, and bad days, (and weeks and months, etc) and there are days you wish you could just knock their heads together to make them stop bickering, sniping, making snarky comments and generally being unpleasant. That is a bit what my two have been like to each other this week. And it has been doing my head in. But today - today they were nice, to each other. Not only during the walk but afterwards as well. Bliss!
We went past the fishermen - a new bunch - and I managed to not snicker and say anything about size matters (because it would have been very childish and my children were there).
But honestly, is that rod not meant for catching marlin off the Pacific coast or some such thing - not catch and release at the reservoir?
We admired the wildflowers -
Did some balancing -
And came home. Hope you had an equally glorious time in the sunshine.
aww looks like you've had a lovely afternoon, wouldnt mind a nice saunter through some woods myself.... miss trees...ReplyDelete
What a lovely time you've been having! Love your fisherman humour, would love to have seen their faces if you had said something!ReplyDelete
Quick, someone send Sarah some trees!!ReplyDelete
Looks like a perfect walk. We are currently having one of 'those' bad childhoods, gone on waaay longer than a bad day!
Where was that sunshine when we were in England?? Having said that we get more than enough of it here and it`s been seriously warm here today so I am not complaining. Really. Your walk sounds lovely and I always mean to comment that I really love your honesty about all things - your quilting, your children, your life. It`s very refreshing.ReplyDelete
Don't worry too much about the kids. Me and my sis always fought (including some broken bones...) but were all fine now :-) This looks like a lovely day out, where is it?ReplyDelete
Bliss on a stick! JxoReplyDelete
Well you are a much better mother than me! I switched ON my sewing machine, told my kids " I don't want to hear it!!!" and sent them outside to play!ReplyDelete
Your walk looks lovely :)
Lovely walk. Perhaps you should get the girls a dog. I'm sure they'd want to be out every day with it!ReplyDelete
