This month went by fabulously slow! I think it was because instead of having full calendars, we just got to be together as a family more. I’ll take more months like this, please!!!
Bill takes pics like this all the time because it’s so reflective of daily life. This little man always, ALWAYS, finds his way beside me on walks so he can hold my hand. I will miss that maybe more than anything else as we leave the littles season of our lives.
Liam and I played mini-golf one day and this mama duck with her ducklings was literally right beside the green. Never flinched at all!
Love love love how much the kids still enjoy picture books, no matter the age.
Lots of July 4th fun!!! Making patriotic strawberries and a cake.Hanging with these fun friends, Olan Mills photo and all.Loved this pic of the three littles sitting side by side entranced by the fireworks.
