Finally a Day Off ... Sorta

A few posts back I had made a promise that I was going to just put my foot down and enjoy some time for family and relaxation.  Keeping true to my promise, I said NO to 3 different clients who wanted my day for varied real estate related business.  All understood and even said enjoy your time with family.  My daughter and son-in-law came in from out of town which is rare.  On borrowed time between the other set of parents in the area and friends, I knew I better spend the moments I could with them or just do the kick me later feeling if I chose work. 

So today we went to the Dallas Arboretum and had a lovely picnic with other family members joining and even the in-law's parents.  I of course took advantage with camera in hand to snap a few photos.  Enjoy my fun moments!

Fun, Fun Day and I will be sharing more of my photos on posts to come!  I will have to admit that I spent my morning on taking care of some business but I didn't miss out on this absolutely perfect afternoon with mid 70s weather, light winds and sunshine!
