A Worthwhile Investment

On Thursday The Atlas took the day off and we went to the A&P Show with our boys and the lovely Juliet (and munchkins) joined us too.

The Show is an investment – it ends up being a bit with tickets and rides and food but I think it is worthwhile.

I tend towards spending money on ‘stuff’ rather than ‘experiences’. But when my boys are big they are far more likely to remember the events of their lives and the experiences we invested in, than they will what we bought them for their last birthday.

This week I am grateful for the opportunities afforded to us living in this beautiful place

A husband who wants to spend time with his family enough to take a day off

The financial means to do this

Boys who include others and love making new friends

Bounce who said ‘This is cool’ while he watched the motorbike jumps

and Flip who waits all year for the bungy trampolines

and weather that meant we didn’t get soaked while we did it all!

Other grateful people here.

  11. Looks like you had an amazing time. I am beginning to feel that we don’t do enough trips out with the kids as they are growing up so quickly. Soon they won’t want to go out with us so we’ve got to make the most of it whilst we still can! Your boys are just too cute. x

    I adored the photo of you with the boys…
    I’d love to take my kids to the show, but the bigness, and expense of it freaks me out a little…. Maybe I will get over it and take them….
