Easy Relaxing Day and new freebie

Today we took it easy, nice and relaxing day. Had to recover from our busy weekend with baseball and hockey followed by 4 days of twindom. I didn't realize how quiet my life is with just the two of us until yesterday. The B-man said he was ready for some peace as well. Loves those cousins of his and they worship him, but a man (in training) can only take so much talk of unicorns, Littlest Pet Shop and things being 'cute'. He enjoyed the pool and hanging out but was ready to head home.
One of our adventures with the girls was going for ice cream followed by a trip to the local bird sanctuary to feed some ducks and geese. Simple trip right? Wrong............5 minutes to decide between chocolate or vanilla ice cream (soft serve) and then it was in a dish, no a cone. Got it in a cone and then had to ask for a dish anyway, LOL. Granted the one who decided to put her cone in the dish had a much cleaner face than the other one, but that's what Wet Ones are for. Off to the bird sanctuary we go to feed the ducks and geese. We get our little cups of food and into the area we go.........................well, that was the plan anyway. Of course these geese see the cups and come waddling up, my poor nieces head for the gate thinking they are going to get bit. We start feeding the hungry mob and convince the one that she is not going to get bit, in she comes after dumping her cup in one spot. Over to the big pond we go where we watch the ducks dive and the geese glide. Attention spans gone so off we went to investigate futher, looked at some Peacocks and then headed back home. The kids played and I decided what we were going to have for dinner, being the good aunt that I am I found the phone book and ordered a pizza for our last night.

It's amazing how fast you forget what it was like, I mean my guys is only 10 but what a difference in independence compared to 6. I had a great time with the girls and would do it again........in a few months, LOL.

Hard to believe summer vacatin will be over soon...........no more staying up most of the night for me. Back to a semi-regular bedtime and routine. lunches, schedules. I have a four day workshop next week I'm looking forward to, get my brain in 'work' mode.

Well I've rambled on quite a bit this evening.....but I do have a template for you. Hope you like it and if you did leave me a little note to say you were here. Have a great day!!

It sounds like you have been busy! It reminds me of when a friend of mine and I were going to feed some geese and that started to swarm really fast around us and we both threw our bread and ran :) and we were in high school
