quiet day at home

september to me has always been an in between month.  too warm to be fall and the chillier nights make it not quite summer.  today we were home bound as mommy was sick and we did not want to expose papa and great grammy to germs.  so we did some laundry and walked all the way to the park and back pushing our tonka truck and pooh bus.  (that was a long walk for little legs.)  we came home and enjoyed the hose and squirt guns for probably one of the last times this year.

we sat on our back porch and ate hot dogs together and fresh pasta salad with the last of the cherry tomatoes out of our garden and a little fresh basil from our not so little basil plant.  we have been so busy running to school, going to play dates and birthday parties that i have forgotten what it was like to hang at home and enjoy a quiet day with the boys.  they are growing up so fast right in front of me.  as parents we get so busy in the going and doing we forget to slow down and listen to the pitter patter of feet, the giggles and the soft (or not so soft) voices of our little ones.  i am so happy that i had the opportunity to do that today.  i hope you all have a wonderful friday and a quiet weekend to enjoy those around you.
