How I Spent My Monday (AKA Can Everyday Be Like This One?)

LOL-this post reminds me of some back-to-school English assignments...
but with a LOT fewer words:)
 
 
Lunch with Papa -
what could be better than that?

 
Time on the mountainside and down by the river too.
Trips with my grandkids ALWAYS include time in God's creation--always!

 
We took photos of plants, flowers and trees...
lots of them.
Even my granddaughter took some -
with a little help.
 
 
 
Our day also included time at the lake
and time with the ducks and birds that seem to always be there.
This time we were thrilled to see a whole duck family
(maybe I will introduce them to you later).
We also learned a bit about PNW history--
always interesting!

 
Did I say we exercised a bit LOT?
Here is my granddaughter exercising...
(not seen is her mom and I exercising).
 
I think my grandbaby is going to be part of my healthier lifestyle
(she and Teresa have inspired me).
BTW, this is the kind of swing set I grew up with...
the BIG, metal kind that I absolutely love!
Now, if I could just find one of the metal merry-go-rounds that I remember..
Have I said lately what an idyllic childhood I had?
Sigh.
Sometimes we just don't see how blessed we really are till that time has become a memory only. 

 
OK, one cannot keep cuteness all to themselves...
it just isn't right:)
 
 
And with this last photo I bid you adieu for today,
because I have a whole LOT of things to do before my next workout day:)
 
How did you spend your weekend and yesterday?
 
Blessings,
Aimee

@Teresa,
Yep you definitely have--I haven't even devoured my hubby's M + M's tonight! BTW, thank you for the inspiration!
I think she's pretty cute too--a lot of fun to be around. And yep--next time, I am taking a ride on that swing set:)
Blessings,
Aimee
