Priorities and A Walk in the Park (Kincaid Park)

While my husband has been out on his week long Moose Hunting trip, I've been given some time to rethink my priorities: church, family, and my new Etsy Shop. I love them all and obviously don't want to give any of it up so I'm taking the time to figure out a way I can be successful with it all. So for now, I have the order figured out,  I just have to figure out the time management part! :-) That being said, I may not get my orders out as fast as I would have in the past, but I will definitely be honest about dates and when I think a product will be complete. I would much rather sacrifice a little time it would take to get something done than to sacrifice the quality of work. And I don't really want to sacrifice time with my children,  if my little guy wants me to sit down and watch an episode of "Blues Clues" well, I want to take that opportunity and watch it with him. (I can sing that mail song a hundred times if it makes him smile!) Also, it seems that when we have kids, we easily forget about our spouses. One of the hardest things for me to do is to make time for my husband so that is definitely something I want to work on. You know maybe something as simple as a dessert date , I mean who doesn't love dessert and great company?

Anyhow, enough about my goals. LOL!!! Here are some pics I wanted to share from our walk that we took awhile back, maybe two weeks ago now. You've read that it's been raining pretty much every day since August 1st, and that really is pretty typical, but you get to the point where you don't care if you get wet you just need to get out! Aka: Cabin Fever!!! Well, that was me. I needed out of the house, I needed exercise and I needed fresh air! So we went to Kincaid Park Kincaid Park Nordic Ski Trail History It's an easy place to walk with some scenery and a place for the little guy to get down and run and get rid of some of that energy!!!

Molly and My Little Guy excited to go for a walk!

Me with My Guy surrounded by one of the beautiful gardens at Kincaid Park. Talk about inspirational! Especially when you've had more rainy and cloudy days than sunny. This was the ticket !!!

There he goes, expending some of that energy!

My baby girl had to get in the garden to. Beauty within beauty!

So once we left the garden we started on the trail and everyone kept saying "there are two bull moose up ahead" Ok, my son LOVES, LOVES moose! so the walk to the moose seemed like an eternity and it's not like we were going to be able to go up and pet them. LOL! But we did get close enough. 

 This mama gets a little nervous about being to close when my little people are around so we were close enough!
The leaves have definitely changed much more than this now. 

This is the second moose on the way back up the trail. 

Yes, they both heard us and they knew we all were there the whole time. 

We had PB&J's for dinner and got done just in time for the rain to start again. 

I had to throw this one in. He was all about wearing his cow shirt from his mamaw even though it is still way to big. He loves hats and he loves putting them on backwards. He is just a hot mess here, but he is having so much fun! 

So enjoy your weather whatever you may be having. We are definitely trying to make the most of ours. It really won't be long before this rain turns into snow, but that's kind of a four-letter word still so I won't be saying it to much before it actually happens....


  1. "dessert date' - what a fantastic idea!
    and I love that photo of your little guy and your dog. What a pair of happy faces! You're right, you should always take the opportunity to watch blues clues, or (insert any other special little moment here). Time moves so much faster than we realize sometimes. Capture all the special moments you can with the ones you love.

    (I found you via Etsy Team - I'm going to follow now. :)

    best wishes,
