Sunday's a Fun Day

Today we took advantage of this beautiful weather we've been having. Shelby and I packed a picnic basket with sandwiches, chips, and some fresh fruits. The whole gang headed to the local park for an afternoon picnic and some time for the kiddos to run off some excess energy.

We were home Friday because the kids have had Strep Throat. We've been cooped up in the house for the last two days and I thought it was much needed for my sanity to get out and enjoy the weather! We went to the local river side park. The kids love to go because they have a fun playground. There is also picnic tables and lots of shade as well as lots of hiking trails. We had some food, the kids played a while and I took advantage of several photo opportunities:
Next up was the big hike. The kids had a lot of fun. We didn't get off the beaten path much due to the fact that we had Emily. Well, I had Emily. I had her in the Snugly carrier. I was a bit afraid to do to much rock climbing for fear of sliding down and landing in this: So, while Brien spent most of his time with this view:
Emily and I enjoyed the beautiful rocks and trying to keep up. *wink*
Overall we had a lovely day. It's been a while since we've enjoyed some good ole family fun that was very easy on the pocketbook! Well, it would have been only I LOST my wallet! Grrr...yup, on our way home we went to Hastings to rent some movies (just another reason to get Netflix right?!) and I lost my wallet somewhere between the store and my truck. I spent the evening calling to report my cards lost. Tomorrow I have to go to the DMV to get a new license. That should be a great way to spend my Monday morning, right!?

A gentleman called my former work place. Thank goodness my sister took my place. She fielded the phone call. He informed her that he'd found my wallet! :) He'd looked inside and found my insurance cards which had the employer's name printed on them. He is going to bring it by there at noon today. Can you believe it. He told her there was no cash inside. Thankfully there hadn't been any to begin with. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that everything else is still inside!

I’m glad the Entrecard thing is working out for you. I don’t understand what it’s all about … but it’s all good. Glad you were able to get outdoors finally. It looks like everyone had a great time on your outing. What a relief to have your wallet found and on its way back to you! Very fortunate indeed.
Hugs and blessings,

Great pictures! The kids look like they are having a fantastic time and I love the smile on your face as you sit on that rock!

So nice to hear that your wallet was returned by an honest person. Those are hard to come by these days!

Isn't it nice when honest people come through? Kind of restores my good thoughts about my fellow humans.
