{my moment}

A moment captured from the week that captured my heart. 
A Friday ritual inspired by Soulemama.


More often than not I find myself just trying to survive the summer days. I think the boys actually get bored without school to do. We all desperately needed to get out of the house to escape the bickering and find adventure. After exploring and finding treasures at a thrift store, and sharing ice cream at Sonic, we explored Woodward Park. Even my sour little Aidan, whose fits and protests I'd lost count of that day, couldn't resist the swings in the warm summer shade. It was a moment of perfect.

If you're inspired to join and play along, leave a link to your moment in your comment!

Happy Weekend, Lovies!

I know just what you mean ... there's always something to do around home, but after a couple of days, we need to head out on an adventure just to remind ourselves of the great busy world out there. Enjoy your summer! http://blockaday.com/

What a great moment!

This week I couldn't choose just one picture, so for the first time I broke the rules and posted two! :) They just summed up our 4th of July perfectly!

shel, i've had to post more than one before too. and i realized a little while back that My moments are merely inspired by Soulemama, so I didn't have to follow all the rules. i had some readers that liked it when i "broke" the rules and added a brief description of my picture, so that's what i do now!

That does look like a nice, shady park. My local park has wonderful shade but the playground is in the sun.

A holiday in Turkey must have been fantastic, Fairy! I have several friends who've been there and adore the country. Christine, we have a beloved park that is full of wooded area and a fantastic playground that's also in the sun. It's a bummer. Thanks for stopping by and commenting, ladies!

Such a fun moment! (And I'm loving those shoes.) We enjoy our park so much! Have an awesome weekend!

Great moment. It looks so peaceful. I hope it's not as hot as it is here (about 100 degrees in Pittsburgh!!) My moment is eating raw peas- http://organicaspirations.blogspot.com/2012/07/this-moment.html

In our family it's me who goes a little wacky without a daily adventure, so I certainly understand. We try to have one adventure each day, be it simple (grocery shopping) or grand (sculpture garden picnic).

Swings are something we can manage in the heat too! So nice that yours are in the shade:-)
