Family Fun Friday

One of the things we really love about this stage in our family's life is setting new traditions and routines. The first three weeks we were here, we weren't able to get out and do many fun things b/c one or more of us were sick.

Finally, on a Friday night, we were all healthy and a bit stir crazy. So, we declared it Family Fun Friday and we went and got take-away and watched a movie at home while we ate. So, the next Friday, the kids insisted we do Family Fun Friday again, and thus our newest tradition was born.

Every Friday afternoon, after the kids get up from nap, is the official start to Family Fun Friday. It usually consists of going to the pool or playground, getting some kind of take-away or going out to eat, and watching a movie at home. We all really look forward to it all week!

This week had been extremely busy and exhuasting for all of us, and none of us were really up to going OUT to do something (even Hannah asked to stay home!). The day had already been chalk-a-block with Seth and I having coffee with some friends in the morning, then Hannah and I going to her friend's house for a play date. So, with the awesome weather we've had this week, we all decided to go for a leisurely walk for our fun activity. It was a blast! We drove down the main road just a bit to a nice quiet side road that lead down to the ocean front.
The majority of the trees here are slanted like that - from being windblown their whole lives!!

The best part of spring - LAMBS!!

I wish I could've caught the pounce-ee's reaction on camera!

Watching the lambs with her telescope

On a mission towards the beach front

She all of the sudden started "modelling"

Looking at the flowers

"Here, Cailyn, you take a look!"

She sure loves her Daddy!

Mommy's turn!

Striking a few more poses

Cailyn "flying", complete with engine sounds - we've never seen her do this before!

A great end to our walk - as we headed back to go get dinner, the little lambs were right by the fence!

Wonderful glimpse of your Family Fun Friday...the pic that struck a chord in my heart is the one of the girls walking down the road, backs to the camera, with the ocean in front of them. To me it represents the culmination of your purpose for being where you are :o) You're where you belong.

LAMBS!!! Your location is really not fair to the rest of us that take pictures. ;) Seriously, your "people" will use you to make brochures.
