I have to say I love Sundays. They are a special day for me and always have been. I start out the day with church and then it is almost always a family day after that.

Today I woke up to the sound of rain. It was wonderful and the clean smell of trees and water wafted into my bedroom. My excitement was only a little dampened (haha pun intended) when I realized I would be biking to church. After packing my skirt and top and dressing accordingly it was really no big deal. The streets were so quiet and it was truly a peaceful ride.

We had lunch at my parents - my Dad is giving his new grill a workout and grilled some amazing salmon with a raspberry chipotle sauce brushed on it!! YUM!! Then we headed home and I put the boys to bed, but not before promising Corbin that he could wear his new firefighter rain boots and go for a puddle jumping walk once he woke up.

Three hours later I finally went in to wake him up! So we put on our boots and headed out. The boys had a blast and listened so well. I can't wait to take them out for more puddle jumping...though Noah still hasn't quite figured out jumping so he is still puddle stomping ;P

Afterwards we came home and made muffins and dinner together. I really gotta say it was an awesome day. The boys were so well behaved and fun. I think it was pretty much a day that Mom's live for :)

Completely unrelated but John has been waiting to see if he still had a job as his company is merging with two others. Upon checking the mail yesterday we were so excited and relieved to see an "offer of employment" and not only that but a significant raise in pay!! This is just a huge answer to prayer!


  1. so many blessings! Glad you had such a great day :)

  2. It sounds like you had an awesome day!! Glad that the kiddos were good and you got awesome news!! I'm excited for you.
