Yesterday Shane called off work, taking a "mental health" day. He doesn't do it very often and he works a lot of overtime. It's easy to get burned out. We decided that since it was such a nice day, we would take the girls to the park. We went to the park by my parents because it is really nice and Sarane can use most of the playground equipment. The girls had a blast. Sarane loves all the slides. Last year we couldn't even get her to slide down the baby slide by herself. This year she owns the big slides. My baby is getting so big! Elora loves the swings. I wish we could have a swing set in the backyard. I hate apartment living! When we were done, we went to see the grandparents. It's been a couple weeks and the girls love their mamaw and papaw. It was supposed to be a short visit so I could come home and make dinner. Instead, we ended up eating pizza over there and stayed for a few hours. It was nice. I feel recharged when I spend time with my family. We are dysfunctional for sure, but I love my parents and my siblings. Shane likes spending time there too. His dad passed when I was pregnant with Elora and his mom is 1 1/2 hrs away, but she is disinterested in anyone other than herself. His parents are also about 10 years older than my parents. Shane gets along well with my dad. They have a lot of the same interests. They both love music. Both of them insist on telling me facts about musicians I either have no idea who they are or could care less. They are excited about a concert this summer. Tesla and Ted Nugent. Have fun guys.
Overall, it was a nice day. Didn't have the best dinner, but that's ok. I had fun with my family and that's what really matters!
