After Parent/Teacher conferences a week or so ago, I came home deflated and upset. I walked back in the house, and the kids were all happy to see me. I thought I'd better change my attitude, so they stayed happy. I announced an impromptu outing. Pizza and the Park! They kids quickly got ready and off we went.
I love Kennedy's face in this picture. She was probably mid-bite, with a huge amount of pizza in her mouth, but she looks content and satisfied with that closed smile on her face!
In reality, I really wanted to please this guy. Kolby needs more love and happiness in his life, so he was my focus....and I think I succeeded. He had a great afternoon.
This boy made me smile. "See mom...XOXO. I love you!" What a sweet boy I have.
Kennedy could have played on the slide all afternoon. She had a great time.
So did Kimble. They went round and round, up and down. Slides are great.
These two jumped off the swings so many times I lost count.
It was a good thing to do, taking them to the park and surprising them with pizza. I need to be "fun mom" more often.
