Anything to get out of housework!

I have done tons of stuff this week. And not one ounce of it has been housework. All I've done since last Sunday was 1 load of laundry & 1 load a dishes. Nothing else. You'd think yesterday would be a perfect day to clean up a bit. Nope. I just didn't have it in me to waste my time cleaning. It was a beautiful day and we enjoyed it!

I picked up the rest of the notions I needed for the dress I am sewing for the wedding. Which is next weekend, how did that sneak up? Then we went over to Weston Bend State park and spent a few hours. We had a picnic lunch and walked 2 trails. I'm not sure how many miles but it was more than 3. It was beautiful, the trails are shaded by huge trees and we enjoyed the walk. Joy #2 walked ahead of us with another couple he just met. He was their trail guide showing them cool things that grown-ups walk right by without seeing. Joy #1 and I walked at a more leisurly pace many yards behind them.

After our hike, we rested on the picnic blanket. Well Joy #1 & I did. Joy #2 rode his ripstick around. He just never stopped and that would account for him being all cranky in the grocery store an hour later. He was wiped. It was beautiful and I enjoyed spending time in nature with my Joy's. So much so that we are planning to stop off at the Arbor Day park (we're members) on our way back from the wedding next weekend. This time I think we are going to try and stay in the lodge. Yea!
