Sunday Funday

We have a water taxi within walking distance of our house -- it only runs from Memorial Day to Labor Day and only costs $1/person.   And, I'm kicking myself that this year, we only rode it once.  Anyway, despite being busy and overwhelmed and tired last weekend, I was determined to fit in a "vacation Sunday" which is what I like to call it when we do something fun, touristy, and vacation'ish without even leaving our city (or in this case, without even leaving our neighborhood!).  I stayed up super late to work on Friday night (as in 2:30 am) so that I could spend the rest of the weekend with my family, mostly work-free.  It was so, so worth it.  B and I even squeezed in a date night -- we don't have a lot of sitters we feel comfortable leaving both girls with, but we decided to put the girls to bed and then just have a sitter come while we went out for a drink and late movie.  It was perfect.  A perfect end to a relaxing (sort of) Saturday, and then we followed that with a Sunday Funday on the water taxi.

All week long, I reflected back to the hour we spent on the boat, the girls' hair blowing in the wind, both of them squealing with glee, and I just felt so, so blessed.
