For these 3, a perfect Saturday morning at home begins with a wagon ride to their neighborhood playground.
Stopping along the way to hitch a ride on the elevator is a must. It's particularly fun to push the button yourself.
As they near the playground, Daddy picks up the pace, and all 3 go down the hill at top speed.
This is the route they take to the playground. Every single time.
"The journey, not the arrival matters." ~T.S. Elliot
These 3 believe very much in focusing on the journey rather than the destination alone, and in doing so, these small everyday moments have become beloved family traditions.
Magically, a walk to the playground becomes a cherished memory this little guy will forever treasure, long after his last wagon ride with his daddy or very last trip down the slide on his mama's lap.
Back at home, they relax and wind down while playing with their favorite super hero legos. Followed by pillow fights, story time, some backyard fun, and snack time.
"Who's that tromping on my bridge?"
These are all of the little everyday moments that make up a typical day home for this family of 3.
They are extraordinary, often joyous, sometimes messy, occasionally chaotic, and always fleeting.
