Since it was such a lovely day, the kids and I decided to take Lucy for a walk after they finished their homework. Lucy started out prancing and wanting to run, but by the end of our one mile loop, she was dragging! I think perhaps we need to get her moving a bit more often...especially now that it is so much cooler here.
It was a chamber of commerce day with big, fluffy, puffy, white clouds in the sky.
As soon as the leash came out, Lucy started doing the "Oh-boy-we're-going-for-a-walk" dance...
My elder child decided he would try to embarrass me by wearing the geekiest outfit he could find.
I'm not really sure why.
It was a valiant effort...
but I don't embarrass easily.
However, you can tell by the smirk on his face that HE thought he was hilarious.
We saw a butterfly...
(I have NO idea what those little white things are! I didn't even see them while I was taking the picture)
and a seaplane...
and more flowers...
and a really pretty berry thing.
The strange looking elder child kept stopping to look for tadpoles. Because, ya know...he's a boy. They do that.
I was happy I had my camera with me because I was able to capture the girl doing this...
And the boy doing this
Because they thought I was busy taking pictures of flowers and clouds and stuff, they didn't even notice me taking pictures of them.
Which made me smile.
And giggle just a little.
When we returned home, Lucy drank a lot of water and dribbled it all over my kitchen floor. I ignored it.
I was in the zone.
I decided to go out and hang with the eagles.
I tried to get a self portrait so I could show you how relaxed I was, and how much I was enjoying this beautiful, gorgeous, blustery day.
It didn't turn out so great, though.
You'll just have to take my word for it.
