Photo of the Day: a Mom's afternoon out

One of my favorite things to do is take a sanity break from the everyday routine of being a homeschooling mom. Yeah, my kids are getting older now, and while they may be somewhat self-directed with their schoolwork, there is still refereeing that needs to happen and definitely training moments to be seized.

Sometimes, it just wears a mom out, to be honest. So, every Wednesday after working out, Lisa and I try to sneak away to find some sanity. This time we found ourselves at the Point Defiance rose garden and duck pond. It was a beautifully sunny day and the roses were just getting into full bloom. I have never seen so many buds - when they all bust out, it will be just an amazing array of color!

Here's just a few of the shots of some sanity...

Always a treat to take a virtual walk when you photograph your excursions. The photos are beautiful.
