My husband and I like to go grocery shopping when all three kids are at karate. It’s amazing how much faster the task goes when you are having fun! 🙂

I have to admit, my husband aren’t doing too well in this category…not much slowing down. I’m hoping with the weather turning warm, we’ll be able to sent time out on the porch.
