Backyard Blast

June 16, 2008

This weekend my family & I celebrated Father’s Day in our backyard. We read the morning newspaper, enjoyed lounging in the sun, took a dip in the hot tub, lit the firepit and watched the gorgeous colors in the sky while the sun was setting.

All of the kids were together, catching up on each other’s lives and as a parent participating in this very special get together it was so fulfilling to see our children interacting and enjoying each other.

We realized how very busy we usually are when we all get together, when one of my son’s asked if we purchased a new love seat and sofa because he did not remember some of the details on the furniture. The deep seating pieces have been in our backyard for a couple of years now, but all too often we are running from point A to point B when the kids come to visit and we do not take the time to enjoy what is in our very own backyard.

Our backyard is a perfect venue to be casual, relax and enjoy family and friends.

Schedule time to enjoy the simple pleasures in life, your home and your family.

I hope that your weekend was as meaningful and enjoyable as mine.

These are my outside views… write and tell me what you did for Father’s Day? Marcia
