Moving Sunshine

Family fun in the woods

Daylight saving time.  Many wonder why it is still observed.  The state of Indiana seems to be permanently trapped in a debate over what time it is.  With the impending repayment of all those sun-filled moments due this past Saturday night my family made certain that we filled the 1639 minutes that made up our weekend with all the family fun we could.

S'ghetti girl was on the look out for quartz rocks.

Saturday didn't dawn quite as warm as we had hoped so our plans to climb Old Rag were derailed in favor of a closer to home adventure.  We headed to Preddy Creek Park.  This park has a nice little trail system which is very kid friendly.  I was able to get in some trail miles and then meet up with the family as the explored the area.  It was a great way to get the whole family outside.

Back at the house there were a few chores waiting for us but with everyone helping out the work went quickly and no one complained.  The super secret spy had gotten a half dozen magnolia trees that needed planted.  It was a nice start to the small forest I want to create.

Although we had to give back that hour of moments this weekend we didn't feel short changed at all.  It doesn't have to be about how much time you spend together.  It should be about how you fill those moments that really counts. 

And a rich indulgent brownie at the end of a great day doesn't hurt either.


  1. Wonderful way to spend the weekend for sure. I don't know what's better, playing outside in the sun or the brownie!

  2. I am so in love with the sun being out longer at night!!! Sounds like you have a wonderful weekend with the fam! Also, that brownie, looks so delicious!

  3. Looks like a wonderful weekend! Anything that ends with a brownie is my idea of a good time :)

  4. What a great time with family! And those brownies look divine!

  5. That brownie looks delicious!

    And the time switching really messes with me as I live in a state that never changes time and my family in a state that does. I have already pre-apologized to my sister for those calls that will come in at 10:00 pm instead of 9:00 pm as I am getting used to adding 5 hours now instead of 4 to our time difference.

  6. That's the best kind of weekend! And brownies to cap it all off? You've got it all figured out!

  7. That sounds like a perfect weekend! Those brownies look amazing too!
