Picnic Fun

A couple of weeks ago before Josh left for his trip, he decided we needed to have a picnic. He wanted to spend extra time with us since he was going to be gone for two weeks. I have to admit that I was not thrilled with the idea of a picnic. Why? Because I'm selfish and sometimes lazy and didn't want to go through all the work of getting the food together and the kids ready (remember Josiah is just a newborn). However, Josh insisted we have the picnic and I grudgingly went along.

It didn't start off so well, because as soon as we got the blanket down and the food out guess who woke up? I think that babies have some sort of alarm that goes off right when mom is about to eat! Anyone else had that experience? Eventually, I began to enjoy myself and most importantly to enjoy the time with my family. Not many dads are able to come home at lunch and even fewer want to go outside dressed up and have a picnic. I repented to the Lord and to Josh for my bad attitude and a fun time was had by all!

Here are some pictures from our fun time!

What a wonderful post, Dianna! You are such a blessing to me. How easily I succumb to bad attitudes & the "it would just be easier not to do...." when dealing with the kids, instead of joyfully doing those things which will make memories. I am too quick to forget that these days of childhood will pass all too quickly :-(.

I LOVE the pictures!!!! And btw....have you ever had one baby much less TWO???? You look BEAUTIFUL, my friend!

Thanks for sharing...and for the reminder to mother with JOY!!!! I love you very much!
