I have shared in the past
a few of our difficulties in the last few years
since our son was born...
as I have gotten older I definitely believe in the phrase
"Things always happen for a reason"
Things may not be turning out the way YOU want them to now
but at some point in your future you will look back
and see how those circumstances changed who you are
caused you to learn
caused you to grow
or benefited you in a way that made your life richer...
My point being...
One thing that has brought us closer as a family
is that in trying to save some money...
We have re examined all of the fun things you can do that does not cost money!
At first it was about the money...
After a few outings,
I then started to remember what were my everyday memories of childhood that standout?
Only a few involved outings that cost my parents much...
Day trips to the beach
Trips to the local "petting zoo"
Playing in our tent in the backyard
Making assorted bakery items out of mud in the backyard!
Fishing in my grandparents backyard
Catching and examining all kinds of bugs
Story time at the local library
You get the picture,
the list could go on.
So here are some photos from our last outing that was wonderful for our son
and easy on our wallet...
only cost gas!
Colonial Williamsburg has all kinds of animals throughout their property
We took a nice walk near the Williamsburg Inn
and Duke of Gloucester Street...
Sheep coolin' it...
|lots of horses out this day....|
|Probably hoping we had brought apples from the Farmers Market...|
|Little Keeper had the best time looking up close at all these|
animals we normally drive by...
