Went to the zoo today with friends. The sky fought off rain for most of the day. The sun peeked out every so often to tease us. The kids had fun seeing the Rhinos, monkeys and of course, the elephants. We had a picnic lunch and then came home. My friend and I talked over coffee while the kids played together. It's nice to have friends. We have planned to make Tuesdays "our day" to do an outing with the kids. It will be fun and something to look forward to. Last week we went to the canal, fed the duckies and had ice cream. I love the "Lazy days of Summer", where you can just relax and allow the day to take you where it may. Long days outside, picnics in the park, and casual suppers are all some of the joys of summer for me. I love that happy-tired feeling; when you're tired for a good reason. :) I thank The Lord for those happy-tired days. I can tuck the kids into bed knowing they had fun...and it made them sleepy enough to drift off in 5 minutes or less. I think today will be one of those days. Not just for the kids but, for me too!
