Day 923: A Bit Too Busy

We did stuff today.  And it was kind of too much.

It's amazing what a production it is to get anywhere.

We had Little M's violin lesson this morning (which we were late to) and then went straight to the Children's Museum.  There were Joyful Moments to be had there.  Especially watching the kids play in the newly improved water exhibit.  And it was so nice to have my mom there to help me keep track of everyone.  But, of course, the kids were disappointed that we couldn't stay longer.  It's hard working around so many schedules now!

And then tonight, after taekwondo, we took the kids fishing.

I should really say, HH took the kids fishing.  My mom was able to help a bit, as far as keeping track of everyone, but HH was really the only one who got each pole ready, helped catch and release each fish (4 or 5 total!), and then start the whole process over again.

I was sitting some distance away with Darling A.  Partly to keep her safe and partly because they were fishing in a bunch of rocks and there was nowhere for me to safely set up a chair.

A fun (albeit hot) family outing.  But, quite possibly the last one of its kind for a while.  We couldn't have done this without Grandma!

Wishing you all Joyful Moments that are more than enough, but not too much!

Well, I felt pretty special when Sweet P wanted to make sure that I got to share this fun family experience. Thanks! It takes a lot of effort to make these family outings happen. Especially when there are young children involved. I get reminded of that every time I visit my kids and their families. My JM was spending time with each of you throughout the day.
