Picnic in the Park

Today was our "weekend" as David had Sunday-Monday off this week. He always has Sundays off, but it's been a long time since he's had an extra day completely work-free! It was a much-needed day of relaxing and catching up on stuff around the house that he had been wanting to do for some time now. And Ryenne and I enjoyed having him all to ourselves for a day!

We decided that after Ryenne's nap we would have a picnic lunch at the park! We swung by the store to pick up some lunch things, then headed off on our adventure.


David has become quite the grill master! Although today we only grilled hot dogs, there was a time when he didn't even know how to do that! He's come a long way and it's been a fun hobby for him (and Ryenne and I definitely benefit from this "hobby" too...)!

Since it's November, David has decided to accept the "No Shave November" challenge for the first time in his 24 years! This is what 16 days of no shaving looks like! We've noticed that he looks a lot more like his dad with all that scruff! Apparently there are some very strong Graef genes because just LOOK at how my daughter looks like a mini girl version of her daddy! There is no mistaking that David is the father haha

After lunch David read aloud while I kept an eye on Ryenne as she explored. This park was perfect for letting Ryenne run around because it's SO wide open and there aren't a ton of people around. She could walk pretty far before I would get uncomfortable and have to call her back. A couple people saw her and looked around thinking she was all by herself haha! Nope, just my little adventurer exploring new territories ;)

It was a wonderful day off and we look forward to more "long weekends" like this in the future :) Now, on to a crazy busy work week! Eek!
