Birthday morning

Saturday, May 12, 2012

Today is my birthday. In years past, my request would have been to be able to sleep in -especially on a Saturday. My husband would have taken the kids in the game room and let them watch TV for an extra 2 hours while I got to sleep in.

But not this birthday. I am celebrating another year and the start of our healthy lifestyle. My request this year was that we take a walk at a local park. The park has a small hill, I've been wanting to hike up. So today, after some family snuggle time, we got dressed in our play clothes and headed out for a walk on the trails. The weather cooperated so nicely. We had a two mile walk in breezy, sunny 70 degree weather. At the end of the trails is a playground the kids enjoyed. Along the way the kids looked at snails, flowers, and dogs. It was great to see the kids running down the path and enjoying being outside. While this will always be a special memory for me, I hope for them in fades into many more memories to come of us out walking, hiking, biking, and playing as a family.

We had a blast. I can't think of a better way to start another year.
