Easy on a Saturday Afternoon

Yesterday reminded me of what weekends are supposed to be. When I was a very young kid, our parents used to take us to the soccer field up in the mountain for a picnic. I remember kicking a ball around. 

In the recent years, weekends were either about eating or drinking out with friends or working. Not that there is anything wrong with either - it's just that I seemed to have forgotten that a weekend could be just about sitting around being quiet and not really doing anything. Yesterday, we went out to take the kids to Baker Field, a place in my hometown where I used to play soccer as a high school student.

It was boring at first, but then after a while, you won't be able to help but appreciate your surroundings. Lying down and looking at this view is hard to beat.

 And of course, the kids enjoying themselves is priceless.
We had enough foresight to bring the Mickey mat; I wish I also had my Ratatouille mat!
 Sam using his walker on the grass was not optimal, but it worked! He had a blast going around.
 Here we have our future goalie?
Peek-a-boo!
 Sam and Eli even got into a loving mood. They kept wanting to hug and kiss each other. :)

As could be expected, the boys were busted by the time we got home, so the "adults" ended the day with this.
I think it was the first time I didn't have trouble falling asleep in a while.
