I'd had my eye on last Saturday for awhile...It was our only free weekend for about the next 2 months, and I wanted to make it count. Add in the 70 degree weather forecast, and we suddenly had big, outdoorsy, road-trippy plans.
Antelope Island, here we come!
For a half tank of gas, an hour of driving, and $9, we had the perfect day.
We adored the beach - complete with sand and water warm enough to wade in.
Although Walt may take exception with that last statement...
We needed this day - to remind us that the future is fluid. Things change, and that's OK. Things stay the same; that is also OK.
We are at a fun stage of life. We have the privilege of living on a small income, getting creative with date night, sometimes letting dinner be pizza, allowing dishes to pile up in the sink so we can play peek-a-boo and wrestle on the floor, making big decisions, and sometimes letting go of our plan - for the night, the week, the next 3 years...
As long as we're together, we're enjoying the ride.
