January 1st was a relaxed day. So relaxed, in fact, that the kids never changed out of pajamas. I think we were just all beat from the last week of holidays and family from out of town and trying to do everything all the time. We spent the morning with grandma and poppa and came home for lunch. The afternoon was spent putting the finishing touches on our new playset and raking up leaves in the yard. It was a gorgeous day out and the air was very refreshing. As we packed up the last of the yard tools Paul and Amelia climbed up to sit on the edge of their fort and were checking out the view of a blinking light up on top of a neighboring house. It was getting dark so we had to go inside and start dinner but I wished that moment could have lasted a little bit longer.
