Lately, Grant and I have been talking about our time

Do we use it wisely?

We decided that at night instead of just making dinner and then sitting in front of the TV and taking Emrie on the same boring walk every night, we are going to start being creative and start using our time better

I want Emrie to have fun memories and just because at night we are tired, it is a time that our little family is all together

Tonight was the first of many nights where instead of watching TV we decided to listen to music

After dinner, we went to a fun park for our walk where there were ducks, a lake, football practice and basketball players

Oh yeah and some hop scotch :)

It was so fun to do something different

I could get used to thinking outside of the box and creating sweet memories with my little family of 3!

Great idea Ashley. We try to come up with 'fun' activities after dinner too. I'm going to have to start thinking of more 'inside' ones though... because it's getting cold!

You're a fantastic mama. Looks like Emrie had lots of fun. This post is really similar to one I just wrote last night... I have it scheduled for Monday or Tuesday. Great minds think alike! haha.
