Today I'm thankful for Saturdays.
Saturdays are cause for great celebration in this house. Gage asks throughout the week, "How many days and hours till Saturday?" And I find myself just as giddy to get a full day with our whole family, no distractions and lots of plans. Saturdays are the perfect mix of productive and relaxing and I need them. I just do.
Yesterday we visited Santa at the mall and rode on the carousel a couple of times. We had a good lunch and while Steven went to a meeting, the kids and I climbed into bed and watched Tangled. It was just good. Nothing amazing - no, we weren't in Paris or hiking the Appalachians (though I want to!), but a good solid Saturday in my humble opinion, is one of many small adventures and sweet moments.
