I was sitting at Panera getting some work done last night and a family sat down next to me.  Older sister and little brother, probably 9 and 7.  They looked SO OLD.  And it hit me like a ton of bricks that in just 3 shorts years (the time since this birthday party – feel free to chuckle when you look at that awesome photo editing and everything all out of focus:) mine will be the same exact ages.  Ton.Of.Bricks. I’m not exaggerating when I say I caught my breath for a second just taking that in.  I just couldn’t help but think for the millionth time, this is it. Right now, this is what you have of their childhood.  Sometimes I need a reminder.

Oh, hey, it’s officially summer!!  I’ve been going in phases with pulling out my camera vs. just having my phone around. But there have been birthday celebrations and last days of school and visits to the pool to give me a little nudge to keep grabbing for my  camera vs. my phone.  On the list coming up (that may or may not get blogged?): Strawberry and cherry picking.  Lemonade making.  Jam-making.  Cheese-making.  Swimming Lessons.  Picnics in the woods.  More swimming and more hikes in the woods.

p.s. More 6th birthday festivities over here!

    Wow! The chicks have gotten so big… use that however you want. Literal and figurative. Totally know what you mean! As you know, I’ve written a lot (too much!) about my kids getting older… it’s something that just hits me over and over. But oh, the beautiful photos here and every time you post, to look back on. Such a treasure trove of memories one day. 🙂 Just wonderful Lilian!

Leave some love! (It always makes my day:)
