Day 10: Free Food

Today I was using the "just for u" app and found three items that we could get for free. That's right, free!! We got hot dogs, craisins, and flavored wheat thins. These are things we would not usually buy, but free is free. I'm grateful for this awesome deal!

Day 9: Paved Walking Paths

 Today I went for a walk (and a bit of a run) at a park close to where we live. While I also enjoy trails through hills, forests, mountains, etc., I really appreciate a good paved path now that I am usually pushing a stroller on my walks. I am grateful for this great paved path that is pretty close to our house.

Day 8: My Kindle

DH got me a Kindle for my birthday last year. I really went back on forth about whether or not I wanted one. I enjoy a regular book and feeling its weight and using that to judge how much of the book is left to read. I also love that regular books are entertainment that don't require batteries or charging. You can read on a plane during take off and landing. Not true with a Kindle. Although I was somewhat apprehensive, I am so grateful for my Kindle. Without it I probably wouldn't have finished a single book after having  DD. The Kindle has been great because I could read it and "turn pages" while rocking the baby to sleep, which can sometimes take a very long time!  Even though it took almost a year to really appreciate it, I am so grateful for this wonderful birthday gift.

Day 7: Great Parks

Today we went to a really fun park with my coworkers and their kids. This park was great!  They had playgrounds, a huge lawn, a carousel, train, creeks, a lake and ducks. Baby E went on her first train ride. It was probably a five minute loop and she fell asleep by the time we returned to the station. I am grateful for being introduced to a new park that we will definitely be visiting again!

Day 6: Pedicures

I love when I am able be a little pampered with a pedicure. Even more so when I get to do it with the girls. That was a special treat this afternoon and I enjoyed every minute. I picked bright yellow because it was so cheerful. I am grateful for relaxation with good friends!

Day 5: The Library

Our library has many activities and events. Today we went to story time and they were also having a 5 year birthday celebration for the library. This means Baby E got stories, songs, AND saw some wildlife, all for free!!!  So grateful for the library.

Day 4: Messy Food Faces

We recently started giving Baby E solids. So far peas, green beans, and carrots (which was on the menu today). She seems to like all three. Even though it's a big mess to clean, I am grateful for messy faces that make me smile.
