not too long ago,
i took the kids to visit family
we generally try to see nearly everyone in one fell swoop.
it turns out to be an intense day,
but oh so worth it.
especially the drive back home
where all of my littles are sound asleep
and i don’t have to be touched or talked to
and can enjoy non-children’s music.
doesn’t my grandmother look amazing?
i won’t tell you her age
(because that would be rude)
but she’s older than 89 and younger than 91.
amazing, i tell you.
and when we go and visit we always get in some good
Uncle S time.
my sweet boy.
Great Grammy would have
liked to hold L longer
but his 27 pounds
can exhaust the best of us pretty quickly.
my parents graciously hosted us on the open seas.
or the bay.
and it is only a matter of time
before this little one goes overboard.
i promise you.
we can all thank D for this shot.
the sea lions sleep anywhere they can get to.
and D took this shot, too.
after one shot he proudly announced,
“mom! i almost got your eyes.”
but how about that.
my eyes did in fact make it.
That Guy is surviving cancer.
and is clinging to God.
my parents took us to a petting zoo
where the kids got to ride on a train.
and at my parents’ everyone wears crocs.
L even has his own pair.
