I am not sure why I do this to myself. I will buy a huge bag of M&M's then put them in the cupboard like I can pretend they don't exist. But I know they are there, in all their crunchy, chocolaty goodness. And then I eat way too many of them. I have a lot of willpower, but not when it comes to chocolate. And yet, what do I do? Buy warehouse quantities of these things and try to hide them from myself. Even though I already know the outcome. I will still eat the chocolate. Every time. Sigh.
Yesterday I took the kids to 5 Mile Lake Park in Federal Way. I try to get there at least once each summer to swim and hang out in the sun. I have fond memories of that lake- we used to go there all the time in high school. It was the perfect day- the weather was warm but not too hot and it wasn't overly crowded. We stayed for most of the day just swimming and relaxing. Somehow we avoided sunburns and there weren't any major meltdowns. Just an awesome day soaking up summertime.
