Each member of our family is so different, like individual components of a symphony. But, like a symphony, each part is important to the overall structure and sound of the piece. We all work together to make a beautiful sound...our family. Just as the Lord knit us together in the womb, He is now knitting us together as a family, for His glory, outside the womb.

Splash Park

The other day, I decided to take the kids to the nearby splash park to cool off.  The splash park has a plethora of great features:
1. The kids get to get wet!
2. Mommy doesn't have to put on a swimsuit and get in the water.
3. Mommy can cool off too, without getting drenched.
4. The kids don't drip all over the place track dirt into the house as the run in and out.
5. It's free!
6. It kills time, the kids are outside, mommy has an excuse to sit and relax and not get annoyed at the kids for bothering her while she's trying to get stuff done around the house.:)
7. The playground's right next to the splash park, so Cadence and Finn can run back and forth between the two while I stay with Aria.
8. Running burns energy, hot sun tires them out = nap/rest time is long and peaceful for all.
 Aria loved sitting in the water.  It took her a little time to work up the courage to venture out into the water, but once she did, she loved it!
Cadence and Finn loved playing on the playground and then running back to the water to cool off.
This may just look like a normal guy to you, but he was the hero of the day.  He was going around to every pole and piece of playground equipment to make sure it was all secure and safe.  What a guy!
Then, it was time for a goldfish snack break.
