We decided to take advantage of all of this extra daylight that the time change "saved" us and take a Sunday drive. Usually these little excursions turn into me yelling at the kids to stop smacking eachother or get back in their seatbelts or something, but yesterday's drive wasn't too bad. There was minimal yelling on my part and we drove through Gunlock at the most beautiful time of day (in my opinion)--right around sunset.
The weather was perfect. I wanted to skip rocks but I couldn't bring myself to mess up the water, so we took pictures. In hindsight, I wish we had made Tess wake up from her nap in the carseat.
I think I'm a pretty lucky girl. I know it's not Thursday or anything, but the majesty of God's creations have reminded me about everything for which I am thankful:
a husband who is patient and kind despite my backseat driving
children who are healthy and can do tricks
a mom who is basically a saint and inspires me to try harder and be forgiving
a Tahoe which didn't run out of gas despite the low fuel light being on for like 30 miles
five sisters who maintain my sanity
the Samurai 21 Geisha roll
one word: spring
two words: spring break
six words, one of which is a compound word: In and Out animal style cheeseburger
I think I know where we're going for lunch today....
