Slow Day at the Zoo
Our sweet friends invited us to join them at the zoo on Friday! Days like that take a lot of pre-planning but it was really worth it for the day outside spent chatting with a dear friend and watching our children enjoy each other as well.
I loved that we were not in any rush, just wandered through the nature walk and around to see the animals, sat and ate a picnic lunch together and just generally took our time. We walked over six miles yet it was restorative in so many ways. Feeling grateful for this gift!
Two sayings I want to remember from today -
Sitting at the picnic area eating our lunch, Samuel said, "this is peaceful!" Melissa noted how few 8 year-old-boys would even notice or mention that. Warms my heart.
Emily read a sign and announced, "No Presbyterians on this path!" That would be no pedestrians my dear, smile.
