The Forks


We don't have too much time to take a lot of holiday's in the summer. So we take any opportunity to make special days for our family.
After a very long week for us all, we decided to take a day to relax at the Forks. What a great day it was. I haven't spent a day like that at the Forks since I was 16. It's been too long...
We enjoyed the walk through the market, all the neat shops and an excellent meal at the Spaghetti Factory. The weather was perfect for a great meal outside so we took advantage of it and enjoyed our meal on the patio.
After supper, we took a stroll along the Red river. The river was lined with many ducks and ducklings. "Don't you think it's a little late to have ducklings around?" I thought they would be much bigger by now.
Even though there were tons of people there, it seemed very quiet and relaxing.

It seems like when you take the extra effort to get away, your conversations and attitudes become renewed. (My attitude was a little sour at time's seeing I have PMS and I'm exhausted from the previous week. lol) Sheldon and I told Jadden about all our memories of being here when we were younger, and Jadden was on his best behavior.
I just don't think I could be any happier with the family I have. Jadden has become such a big kid and I can see that the older he gets the more we want to get out of the house and go off on an adventure. It's so easy and so much fun. I'm not just getting away with my family, but I'm getting away with my best friends.

Oh ya... I can't wait to show you..... On our way to the forks, we stopped by the mall to buy new glasses for me. I bought two pairs Woohoo... I have to wait till next week to show you!
