I was laying on my bed being lazy with Boogie this afternoon when I looked out the window and thought "Why are we wasting this afternoon?" Remembering that the boy's double wagon was freshly put together I decided we needed to take a family walk.
I was worried that Bunny would be uncomfortable because although he sits now it is an emerging skill and that's a long time to sit without much support so we modified his cab to make it a little more comfortable for him. He was happy as a clam.
I've never used a Boppy pillow for breastfeeding but it sure has come in handy for a million other things!
Someone was feeling sassy.
We have an awesome little escape to nature area right behind out house and I LOVE to walk over there and get recharged. The girls always beg to go down by the creek and the boys were mesmerized by the glistening water.
I was so worried they were going to slip on the muddy bank and fall in that I had to have Daddy take over girl watch. They entertained themselves by throwing sticks in the water and watching them float away.
I was actually surprised that the boys were so patient while the girls played at the water. Buddy got a little stir crazy but he entertained himself by terrorizing the plants nearby.
While we walk I usually point out birds or little creatures or cool flowers (taking after my dad on that one). Boogie and I had just had a conversation about how Poppies are the state flower and you are not allowed to pick them. So naturally when I saw some poppies I pointed them out to the girls. Boogie went closer and I reminded her "We just look at poppies but we can't pick them"
Baby walked over to get a look and I also reminded her "We just look but we can't pick". Daddy and I were still walking when we heard "I PICKED A POPPY YOU CAN PICK THEM! LOOK I PICKED A POPPY!"
You should have seen the horrified look on Boogie's face. Apparently Baby thought I meant that you physically can't pick them. So she had to try.
Will you look at that view?? I love where we live. This is a view that is a 10 minute walk from my house.
What a perfect Saturday afternoon!
