Reclaiming Sundays!

    One of my favorite blogs, The Mommyhood Memos, has started this wonderful weekly post about reclaiming Sundays.  It focuses on giving yourself and family a chance to reconnect, rest, relax and recharge for the week.  I think it is a wonderful idea and have decided to really try and make sure that I take the time to just be with the family and let things happen.  To play and spend the day with the kids doing what ever the world brings to us.  So with that being said here is what we did on our Sunday, which by the way followed one crazy Saturday, but that is a whole nother post for  a later day.

    Our Sunday was spent at home.  We did not do anything but stay home and enjoy the warm weather.  It felt like spring!  We were able to go outside without any coats on and the boys loved it.  We were settling down from a busy Saturday, which was O's birthday party, so we needed a day to rest and relax.  I also needed a day to get the house back into order and O needed a day to play with his new toys. 
So on this nice day we took time to play with balls, which is Little B's favorite thing to do.

Have a picnic lunch.  O has been waiting and waiting to do this.  He loved it so much.  Just being able to be outside and eat, he was in his glory day.

It was Little B's first time sitting at the little pinic table and even though he did not sit there long he seemed to enjoy it.

  We also spent a lot of time chaseing Little B out of the dog food bowls!  This is another of his favorite games.

What can I say, we had a great day and got to enjoy the wonderful weather.  I can't wait for more days like this.

  1. Oh, sounds like such an awesome day!! I love days when we just stay home but are deliberate about actually lounging around and spending time together (instead of just chores, fixing things, etc!). And that little picnic table is just adorable! Levi's getting to the age where he'd love something like that. My in-laws gave him a little chair for his 1st birthday and he loves it. It amazes us how long he will sit in it just reading books or playing his guitar. (And he's normally SUPER active!!:)
