^Cutest little suitcases that Personal Creations sent the boys.
^Grandpa with the boys at the circus
Last Thursday, my parents and I took the boys to Tryon Palace, and it was such a neat experience. Charlie especially loved the kitchen, and as we were walking to another part of the house, he turned around to the tour guide (who let him grind the pepper and turn the stove), and said, "I like this kitchen!"
My mom and I were talking after the tour, while the boys played in the gardens out back, about how people used to live so simply...and how wonderful that was. They really enjoyed...life. Talking to each other face to face, enjoying the beauty of the nature around them, taking time to do the things that made them happy.
Enjoying life is exactly what the boys and I did last week. We packed up and headed out to my parent's house for the week, since the boys were on Spring Break. We went to the circus (which was kinda gross as circuses are, but kinda fun), visited Auntie Jessie at school, played and played some more. Mimi and Grandpa's house is my boys' favorite place to be.
This week is back to real life...cooking, teaching, getting out of the house on time for school(!)...but I'm going to try to apply this quote (by Elder Perry from General Conference) throughout the week. Such a strong quote and reminder of what's important.
I hope you have a fantastic week!
