Everyday we do the same thing. Monday through Friday, I struggle with my kids to take a nap. They really don’t want to take it and I want to try something different, but what? What am I supposed to try to make nap time great for all of us? Well, today we did something a little different. We went for a bike ride.
After all of the “stress” that I had been feeling this week, I needed a bit of a stress reliever. Now it wasn’t easy because my legs were hurting, so I just took it slow and we didn’t go too far. We did enjoy ourselves though.
We stopped at a park and I let the kids play for a while while I just sat. That’s right! I just sat on the grass with nothing to do and rested. It was really nice to just sit.
There was a lady there win her two children and they had brought some Subway to the park for lunch. The fittest thing happened. These three, or maybe four, ducks began to Walt to their table. The ducks had come from a pond near by and were simply seeking to join them for lunch. She and her kids hurried and swallowed their lunch and the moved to another location. The ducks must not have gotten the memo because the follower her as she we to her next location.
After my children played, the got into the bike trailer and I rode home. It was really nice. We were on a trail out here in Utah and the mountains made the scenery amazing. With my iPhone playing music, I turned around only to see that my children we asleep. I smiled a continued to ride. It turns out that Precious was really asleep meanwhile Ice Man was only pretending. It didn’t matter though. It was a great ride and I think we’ll do it again sometime soon.
Now that I’ve had a nice break, I’m back home and must get to work on my final research paper for school and all the other work I have, which includes folding laundry.
Today is a really good day and a wonderful occasion to smile.
