On Friday afternoon as I hung up yet another load of laundry, I felt a cool breeze coming through the open balcony windows. That, combined with the Friday urge I often get to just get out of the house and away prompted me to call Ryan to ask if he was fine with us going on a picnic for supper. He's always ready for a spontaneous adventure, so I set about finding food to bring, excited at the thought of getting out.
It's summer. Yet we've not been able to do many "summer" things, between lots of energy spent trying to figure out what we were doing, and then a month of moving craziness. And then there's the heat... So it was extra special to have a breezy evening and a peaceful picnic at a not-very-crowded park by the river!
Today we went swimming for the second weekend in a row. Hadassah absolutely LOVES it. It took her a while to warm up to it (literally - the water was cool and she didn't want to get in at first) but this second time around she knew how fun it was that she didn't protest too much as we bobbed up and down to get wet. She enjoys kicking her arms and legs and wants to swim just like daddy. :) It gives us all good exercise, and is such fun to see Hadassah have such joy in the water. It's also nice to be doing normal summer-y things... Though I know the season is almost at it's end!
