The dishes are not done...

So, there are a ton of dishes in the sink...In fact, the kitchen is a disaster.

The floor needs to be vacuumed, and the laundry piles need to be dealt with.

But instead of all that...I spent the warm afternoon with two of my favorite girls. We filled up Emma's "tub" and spashed outside in the water. Zoey napped and ate on the blanket, while Emma played submarines with all her cars. I grabbed an old Ensign, and sat down to read. Flipped right to this one, about Simplifying life. I loved it. I couldn't help but feel ok with my decision to ignore everything that needed to be done, and focus on playtime, nature and little baby noises. :) Definitely a good day.

Now, since we skipped Emma's nap, she'll be going to bed early, and maybe I'll have time to attack some of the work that I managed to avoid earlier. First, though, I'm going to eat my asparagus wraps.

I have felt the same way a lot lately about just "being" and enjoying the moments that I have with my kids. They are only little for so long & I want to cherish every memory I can with them! What are asparagus wraps? They sound good!

Asparagus wraps are my favorite healthy treat right now. Just take asparagus, and wrap each spear with a slice of turkey deli meat. Drizzle with Olive Oil and salt/pepper. Pop them in the oven for about 15 min on 415 degrees. Yummy, yummy asparagus wraps!

Tomorrow that is going to be me! I feel like my days go by so fast and I have nothing to show for them. I need to play more with my kids. THanks for the reminder!
