It’s a massive park, well not Central Park massive, but suburban massive. It’s just a whole lot of green, a lot of field, and would be fun to ride bikes on the designated bike paths. Note to self: time to teach True and Brave how to ride a two-wheeler (must buy one first). We brought bubbles with us and though half of it spilled in the car (on them), they still had fun blowing what was left over.

True had been asking me a for a long dress (she likes to copy me and I have a couple maxi dresses I wear all the time), so I’m glad they’re in style right now with the kiddos and Old Navy had this one to try out. Brave isn’t much into dresses these days, so I knew this romper would be perfect for her, with a Spider-Man hat of course. Soul loves skirts, as long as they’re short, and the baby, well, she’s fine with anything, just don’t try to take her bubbles away.

I’ve got a couple parenting books I’m currently going through, and one was reminding me that when I think of my kids as a “handful,” or the phrase, “You’ve got your hands full,” to think of it as a handful of blessings. I don’t know about you, but when I hear “handful” in reference to kids, I automatically think of the chaos. This week, I’ve been trying to rework my brain to think of “handful” as blessings. I know they are, but on those days when it’s all about survival and trying to get to bedtime, I forget. I don’t want to forget, and I want to constantly grow in wisdom and be more loving, and cherish these crazy moments. Hence, the reading of parenting books. We need more days like this when we go out to blow some bubbles and pick some flowers because it really does all of us so much good.
