You might remember that last year I wrote at article for Power Of Moms called, "Mom Adventures." It is about a summer tradition that we have had for several summers to set aside one day a week that I focus on my kids and we have an adventure together. Here is our first adventure for this summer:
We have been taking walks each morning this week by a beautiful lake near our home. We usually end up walking about 2 miles. Today we were determined to make the full loop around the lake which is about 4 miles. The kids weren't worried about their ability to finish the course, they were worried about my ability to finish the course! I am a bit slower when I am pregnant! The kids were awesome, they pushed the stroller to give me extra speed and literally ran circles around me! We completed the course in 1 hour and 5 minutes! Which is quite remarkable considering the extra weight I carry, the stroller, and the fact that we had six kids! (one of the boys was at basketball camp)
We had so much fun and felt such a sense of accomplishment. After picking up our basketball camp boy we went through a drive thru for hot dogs and went to a park we had never visited before and enjoyed the perfect 65 degree weather!
