With summer sunlight staying up so late, and having older kids in the house it gets almost impossible to find alone time or space for private conversation. Since I'm all for the kids cleaning up the messes, I've started dragging Shawn (he's super diligent and would rather clean the messes up first... um, hello... we have kids for that!) out after dinner while the kids clean up and so we can come home to a tidied kitchen and jammied kids. We don't do it often enough, but when we have, it has been good for all six of us to have the space and the time to get things done! I feel like I'm always sharing my husband with the kids... he is an incredibly amazing and devoted daddy... so sometimes a momma just has to take her man back and hog him all to herself! [smile]
We drove out to a local water skiing lake to check out the beaches... sand, real sand! That's a true treat for us folks on the westcoast of Canada. Our beaches are gorgeous, our views are incredible, but our rocks can be sharp and sand is hard to come by... this particular beach is man-made. We will definitely come back with the kids!
