November 2nd - North Carolina Day 3

Gratitude Journal:  I am thankful for how little children can find such joy in even the most insignificant things.  We all need to learn to slow down and just see the fun around us.

This was the first full day with the kids here and we made it a very relaxing one!  Brooks woke up in the night and his noise woke Ashby up.  They both stayed up playing for a while, although neither of them was cranky - just laughing and playing in the middle of the night!  Needless to say, it was a short night, especially for Lisa and David, so everyone just slept in and lazed around - again!  We had a big breakfast (brunch) by 11:00.

We enjoyed our lazy day around the cabin, going on walks, etc, until late afternoon when we decided to go out for pizza.  The Pizza Hut was not very busy, so it made it easy to relax knowing the children wouldn't bother anyone else.

We stopped to pick up a few things for tomorrow's dinner on the way home.  We then spent the rest of the evening laughing at the children, reading, or sewing.  Ashby even tried to copy her mommy doing some embroidery work.

The weather was warmed today, so that made our wonderful day even better.
