Today I made beef stew (was craving), got the kids a few summer clothes at 60% off, dusted off my old basketball and took my kids to a nearby court to teach them how to dribble (oh, the memories), played a ton of aerobie, and watched them have a blast in the nearby spray park, and watched some baseball as the sun set. All four of us, all day. 'Twas perfect.
Now sipping a homemade frappuccino, Tom's hosing the kids off, and we are all going to snuggle down with some popcorn and watch Cosmos.
Sometimes I feel wistful when I realize how much my kids are not babies anymore, but being able to hang out with them all day like this is pretty darn fantastic. :)
