{Sunday Photo - 107}

Today, for the most part, it was just me and my three littles.  Bret was on call and had a busy day.  The kids missed him but they always tell him when he has to leave that it's okay because he's an animal super hero.

We popped popcorn and watched The Chronicles of Narnia, took naps, played games, practiced the piano/ukulele and then spent the evening outside making fairy glue, collecting bugs and wrestling on the ground.

Their favorite game was "Let's all hang on Mom while she waters the plants...it will be SO fun!".  I said it was their favorite game...not mine.
It was all fun and games until they got a little crazy and 2 of the 3 kids got bloody noses.  What can I say, they play hard.
While we waited for the noses to stop bleeding we laid on the grass and looked at the clouds.  We found lots of different shapes and all agreed it looked like lots of pink cotton candy up in the sky.
 We laid there and made up stories and watched the sun set before coming in and getting ready for bed.  

It's days like this that make the more difficult days of being a mom worth it.  Today was a very good day.
