Sunday Afternoon

On Sunday, Shaun took the kids to the farm to visit Great Oma, and I had the entire afternoon to myself. And goodness that was nice! The weather was absolutely beautiful, perfect for painting on the back deck. I don’t get to be outside as much as I’d like, since I work full time. But…

365 Days Outside > 230-238

So it has been a while since I’ve posted a 365 Days Outside update. Of course, that doesn’t mean we haven’t been going outside! It just means I have a ton of pics I haven’t shared yet. I’m going to split them up between today and Friday, and then hopefully I’ll be back on track.…
