You have no idea how good it feels to actually write that. We didn’t have any plans for the weekend and it was great! Well, actually, we did have plans to go to Sheboygan, Wisconsin to spend a few days on the beach with the girls. But, after travelling every other week all summer and always having something on our schedule, we thought that we needed a weekend of nothing. And it was glorious!
Friday Tim went golfing and got a hole in one! If you follow me on Twitter, you already read that he wants to blog about it. He
won’t stop talking about it is pretty proud of himself.
Saturday morning was spent at the park. The girls played on the equipment and swang for over an hour – and we had the whole playground to ourselves! There is something so special about watching your children find joy at a playground – swinging, going down slides, climbing on ropes. Saturday afternoon we played outside and shopped for a big girl bike for E.
Sunday, Tim and the girls spent some time with my in-laws (while I shopped at Trader Joe’s and Target, solo – win!) Sunday night we played outside again while Tim grilled a delicious dinner for us. The fact that summer is almost over was evident by the jackets that had to be worn – but I’m not ready to say goodbye quite yet.

Today I am grateful for time. Time with my family. Time to just be together, to play, to love. I think that we need to “schedule” a weekend of nothing every month – it was so refreshing! Today I’m linking up with Ember Grey for Grateful Heart Monday.
How was your weekend? What are you grateful for today?
