Sometimes you just have to kill the engine

Life gets too busy.  Days get too full.  Everybody gets distracted.  And life seems to slip past, in a flury of activity.  Sometimes, you just need to clear the calendar, and enjoy each other.

Today was sometimes.

Our girls are growing up quickly, our days are slipping by without any notice and we are running around on fumes and stress.  Today we decided to cut the engine and take a walk.

I also decided to do the old fashioned thing and put my iPhone down and pick up my real camera….

 Believe it or not, this was the best I could get of the two of them


 Again, the best we could do.

 We can’t decide #1 or #2.  Which do you like?  Or should we try again?

 This day was what we needed.  We walked for an hour and a half along the river trail.  We laughed, we took pictures, we picked up leaves and threw rocks, then we had hot chocolate/tea to warm up.  We did what we should do more often.   We stopped, just to be.

  2. I love all the pictures, but if I had to choose between #1 & #2, I would pick #2. Sounds like you had a really blessed time, praise God… I can't wait to see you soon..
