Some nights we aren’t all together as a family until after dark. So what do you do?
Make the most of it.
I’ve said it once, and I’ll say it again: I love our backyard. And the boys love it too. Last night after a late dinner, they weren’t quite ready to wind down. It was a perfect evening, not too cool, not too hot. We decided to go exploring in our yard a little. Jace thought it was so fun! He had his Thomas the Train flashlight, and Tanner had his lion flashlight. I tried to capture the preciousness as much as I could with it being so dark outside.
*Note to reader: Tanner’s pot belly is showing because his shirt took a yogurt bath at dinner. You can see some of the proof on his face.
Jace had fun with the lion flashlight because when it opened its mouth, the lion let out a big “ROARRRRR!”
Here’s trusty ole Thomas, leading the way through the dark.
And one final shot of Tanner looking into the mouth of the lion. He always was the daredevil.
When you’re short on time, there is still adventure to be had.
Check back tomorrow for a post on a great way to bond as a family when short on time: Read together! I’ll be posting some of my favorite children’s books that I’ve discovered through my years as an elementary school teacher. Can’t wait!
