a sunday walk.

Wednesday, February 22, 2012

with the weather as gorgeous as it's been this winter, i've taken full advantage and gone for lots of walks.  when i'm feeling particularly lazy and not in the mood, i tell myself it's good for parker (and for family life in general.  if we're all home, we're sitting doing our own thing, ya know?  it's not really together time.).  fresh air!  keeping germs at bay!  vitamin d!
  so, last sunday, i talked steve into coming too.  we walked for hours and by the end william and lindsey were tuckered out.  parker kept shouting to continue moving from his cozy seat in the stroller though.  so we had to, obviously.  we checked out some old cemeteries, old homes, a park or two, and just wound in and out streets of an unfamiliar town.  
by the end, we were all hungry, and we stopped for a bite to eat.  a pizza and sandwich sort of place.  and i did the unthinkable (marianne, stop reading).  we all got cokes!  but, they were these mini ones!  in glass bottles!  they're practically good for you, right?  WRONG.  but they were delicious nevertheless.

  1. very sweet. we do walks often too but maybe not often enough.
    anyway, cokes out of a glass bottle = perfection!

  2. Nothing like a walk with a bit of crisp, fresh air. I so miss that here - you walk a block and are drenched in sweat and feeling yucky from all the dirt floating around. I don't miss winter at all but I could do with something less than 25 degrees C with 90% humidity.

  5. Yes oh yes on the Sunday walks. It was a central part of me and my husband's courtship. And I adore that photo of you and Steve. Gorgeous couple!

  9. You see, we're friends because you do things like walk around in cemeteries.

    I love me a good cemetery. In the daytime.

  12. It's been so nice around here! Great walking weather. Cemeteries are great for walks, bike rides, and learning to drive no matter what anyone says.

    And I love those glass bottles, but we only have them around Christmas!

  13. Remember how for a long time I thought you were this unattainable friend of Ahnika's who might not exist...? Until the day I stayed at your house and met both you and Steve...? Well I totally feel that way about Marianne now. The woman is my idol.

  14. Sunday walks are the very best. And you're wrong about Mexican coke. They ARE better for you because they're made with real cane sugar instead of corn syrup. See? Healthy(er)! ;)
