lunch date(s)

tuesday was a bad day for us.

it was one of those days where you just feel like your failing as a mother.

the boys were absolute monsters. all.morning.long.

so i got up today bound and determined to have a good day

after doing some house cleaning, i packed us a lunch and headed to the park.

the boys ran off some MUCH needed energy, and afterwards we walked over to the picnic shelter and had a picnic.

the boys were super excited. the weather was warm and the sky was a bit overcast (which was a nice break from the heat!)

i looked over at the boys several times as they munched away, simply thankful for that time with them.

because truth be told,  i'm not always so thankful. especially because a certain little one has been driving me crazy pushing the limit lately.

{harper trying to smile with a mouth full of banana}

{carson concentrating on his drink-ps-i actually buy those sugar-filled Hi-C's for Kane, but they were perfect for the picnic...and obviously the boys loved them}

i am going to make it a point to take them to the park for a picnic once a week...even when the blazing heat sets in, i will make it a priority...because it serves as such a simple reminder to me how fleeting this time with them is, and how i should never take them for granted.
