A Nice Day

Last Sunday I took the kids to the Accokeek National Colonial Farm and we had such a nice day walking around the farm and checking the animals out. It was a pleasant day with clouds and a nice breeze in the morning. We walked down the pier to the Potomac River and chatted with a guy who was fishing (and then showed the kids the catfish he had already caught.)

Sometimes outings with the kids (particularly when I'm by myself) end up stressing me out for one reason or another and I wonder to myself "Just WHY am I bothering?!" But that day was a good outing and these pictures are a reminder to myself of "why I bother."

(Of course I didn't bother bringing my camera, so I had to rely on the cell phone for the pictures.)

Couldn't quite get Lucas in the frame.

An egg shell we found in the garden.

Trying to mimic the chickens and roosters.

Talking a walk looking for the bridge.

Found it!

I always stress about outings and then we always have so much fun. Guess it's just part of nature for some of us. Great pictures from a great day. :-)

So cute. Looks like you had fun. I love outings even if the kids are crazy. I have a hard time being in the house too long!

Tausha said...

Looks like you all had a great time. I wish we had a fun place like that near our home.

A very nice day! I know what you mean about outings without another adult being stressful. So nice when it works though!
