F.H.E. at the Park

Well I didn't think I would have anything to write about, but we had a really fun family home evening last night. We let Emma pick what she wanted to do and she picked walking on the trail near our house. It was just really fun walking with the kids on the trail. They had so much fun looking for bugs and all kinds of fallen trees. Emma thought she was walking in the jungle. She's got some imagination. We got to the park and we all had a great time playing together. Joe and I had a contest to see who could swing the highest and I won! Lucas has finally learned how to pump on the swing this summer and it has been the greatest thing. He loves to swing and he swings for hours on our swing set. So we had a treat at the park and then walked back home. There is a big hill at the park and Joe and Lucas log rolled down the hill, which was hilarious. Joe and I log rolled down a hill on one of our very first dates when we were 17. Joe realized after rolling down the hill that he is no longer 17! Lucas had some trouble rolling down the hill. He basically rolled around in a circle down the hill and back up again. He could not roll down that hill for anything. It was too cute. Emma was too tired to walk back so got a piggy back ride and sang the Ants Go Marching song at the top of her lungs the whole walk back. I love these moments when our whole family can spend time together playing and having fun and making memories. It was just one of those days that I will remember forever. I really love being a mom.
