Time... Grab it!

Our first month of summer has been busy. Baseball busy. Travel team busy. Practice busy. 
And I love baseball. Love the team. Love the travel even. 
But, now that we are home,  can I just tell you how happy I am to just "be" with my family?

This week I sat on the floor with Little Bear and pushed an airplane back and forth. 
I watched his face light up, his little feet wriggle.

We took his sippy cup yes that is the wrong lid for a wild ride 

and we laughed.

I sat for hours and played Monopoly and got a swift butt kicking from my eldest son. 

I love games. I love having kids old enough to play games with me. 

And we headed to the golf course to hit balls. 
Where I did not hit one ball, but instead took pictures.

And got looks from HH saying, "Why are you taking pictures at the driving range?"

To his look, I said with my own look and a shrug, 
"Because that's what I do. I document our very sweet good life."

Hi Brigetta!

Hope all is well.

Laughed out loud after reading "Walking Alone"...only it wasn't so funny b/c of how much truth there was to it! My mom was the same way...growing up in the inner city of DETROIT and all! ;) Plus too many Criminal Minds! LOL!!!

Anyway, I can't believe how big your little Bear has gotten. He's not a baby...but a toddler! :( :)

Luke just turned 1...can't even believe it. I remember when you posted about Little Bear turning 1.

Not walking yet...and no, I did NOT push him down...totally kidding!
