We went out scouting locations last night as a family. Mosquitos were horrendous and although the location we found was pretty amazing, the bugs were so thick that the spot is pretty much a no-go. The kids bounced around the wide open spaces like farts in a skillet, as my husband would say. There’s nothing like setting your kids lose in a massive outdoor space for them to wind up filthy dirty as they burn off their spazmo energy.
I had to share this one image of Aiden, as he *never* lets me snap a real photo of him lately. The boy is truly allergic to my camera. No joke. The moment the camera comes out, he starts rubbing his eyes and waxing on about how his allergies are acting up. EVERY. SINGLE. TIME! So, to get this one shot of him was well, magical.
Then there’s Julsie. Nothing fancy. Just her. I see her standing like this all the time with her tiny fingers clasped together, staring in awe over something new she’s just discovered.
I am a mom first and foremost. In these simple moments, I am blessed.
