reclaiming sundays... with sunnies


So, my husband has been teaching Levi to wear sunglasses... to actually keep them on his face. And to my surprise, he's been very successful.

I'm dumbfounded every time I see these chubby little cheeks and button nose with mini aviator sunnies perched on top.


This last Sunday we spent the afternoon at one of our local parks.

One of the perks to living in such a hot, humid (read: sometimes miserable) climate are the free water parks and pools that are open to the public. (Apparently they have to give us some sort of incentive to live here!)


This is one of our favorites - the Riverway.

There are five different pool areas including a normal pool, a lap pool, a "lagoon", a (cold) spa, and a kiddie pool. There are free gas BBQs scattered around the place and lots of grass for picnics and games.


There are also a couple of different playgrounds and a huge bike and walking path that spans the river for miles.

It really is a wonderful place.


I'm grateful to have such amazing facilities close to us and available to us without even having to spend any money. We enjoyed a lovely Sunday together as a family... and so far, we're doing well at our quest to Reclaim Sundays.

Dear friends, were you able to take a break this weekend? What did you get up to?

lovin my sundays more than ever,



P.S. We're camping at the moment, so if I don't respond to comments and emails right away... that's why. No phones or internet for me!


Note: You can read my original post with more of what this is all about here. If you'd like to grab the Reclaiming Sundays button and join in with our family's quest to make some more time for rest in our busy lives, then please feel free. Make sure you leave me your link so I can come see and be inspired by what your family is doing. (And remember, your "Sundays" don't have to literally be on Sundays... any old day will do, as long as it's deliberate.) 






(And don't worry, the button will display on your blog much smaller than the image above!:)

Oh, I'm so jealous of the weather there! It has just begun to warm up here. It's around 70. It's nice, or nicer than before, but still not swimming time.

Levi looks adorable in those glasses. I can see that he so desperately wants them to stay on his tiny face! So cute!
