Today, I'm thankful for impromptu mini adventures. We drive by this train almost every day and Basil ask if we can stop most of those days. We're always rushing home or to somewhere else or it's raining or it's been raining and it's too wet or...there's always a reason. But today, as we approached the train again, I felt a nudge to stop. Basil didn't even ask today, probably because it's been deferred so many times before. And despite the big to-do list waiting at home, I decided to embrace the beautiful fall day and answer that nudge. Moments later, we were out of the car and the kids were joyously running though the leaves to explore the train. It was still wet from yesterday's rain, but that didn't dampen the fun in the least. They loved walking all around the train and happily posed for pictures at every side. It was the best kind of adventure, unplanned and full of joy!
