reminding me of how good life can be


















They came with their pack-n-plays, sippy cups and star wars figurines and we inhaled those tiny boys, those bright and brilliant little men - so busy, busy, busy and curious and delightful. We gathered together again to eat and laugh, drink and remember, sit out on the porch and just be for a minute. The weather cooperated, the inflatable pool drew in our kids and then some - the yard, our house was nothing short of teeming, brimming over, with activity. Twenty wet towels, four dozen donuts, two broken dishes and ten, No more talking. It's time to get some sleeps later, they gathered their stuff, we hugged goodbye and dispersed. Now it's back to our grind and to their grind, to our separate jobs and responsibilities. Thanks for coming and  for  reminding us of how good life can be. It was a wonderful weekend, my favorite, favorite kind of weekend! We love you!

Well the children are all napping and Jared and I are cleaning up after the boys' party. Wish you all could have been with us- never quite the same without you on these occasions (I'll save you a piece of cake. This year, I made my buttercream frosting!). And it never fails that the post visit blogs make me cry like crazy. As always, thank you, thank you, thank you for opening your home and letting us rejoin you if only for a couple days. How precious all the times we have shared and all the memories that continue to be made. As we drove home, Jared commented on how many memories we all have together from Chicago, Austin, and now Chesterton. These visits always help me to remember who I am because sometimes I forget. You all are never far from my heart dear friend.

Oh yes, I cannot fail to mention that the first thing Thomas said to me this morning was, "Well, Ben won the game, but I did sink one of his battleships!"
