I was so happy when Justin suggested we go play and splash in the river with the girls yesterday evening. With little ones, we often stick closer to home once it gets to be dinner/bedtime, in hopes of avoiding crabby kids, meltdowns and to just survive the dinner hour and getting ready for bed routines. Everything fell into place yesterday though for us to get out and enjoy the gorgeous summer evening… Addi napped later and dinner was in the crockpot just waiting for us, so off we went with snacks, drinks and happy kiddos. These kinds of outings take me back to my childhood. I have so many fond memories of playing and learning to swim in the river. It was a special thing to share this fun with our girls.
