Walking at Sunset

Oh sing of summer and a sunset
And sing for us, so that we may remember
The day writes the words right across the sky
They all go all the way up to the top of the night

A few night a week I have been taking the kids for a walk around the block right before it gets dark. They love it and I love spending the time with the as we explore our neighborhood.

Handsome rides his scooter and The Goddess pushes her baby dolls in a carriage or shopping cart. Me, I just look for cars and stop the boy from wiping out.

The Best Time Of The Day

You’re gonna miss this
You’re gonna want this back
You’re gonna wish these days hadn’t gone by so fast
These are some good times
So take a good look around
You may not know it now
But you’re gonna miss this – Trace Atkins

We have been taking the kids around the block at sunset. It is beautiful out and the air is crisp. My son is allowed to take his scooter (a big step for me and for him) and my daughter takes her babies. It takes us about 25 minutes to go around the block which would be about 4 if I was alone but it is so much fun.  They point out everything and my son is getting better on the scooter. He has never ridden in the street and the first night he wiped out two times. Thank God for helmets.

Tree Posing!

Blood on blood, One on one,  We’d still be standing when all was said and done
Blood on blood, One on one, and I’ll be here for you till Kingdom come
Blood on blood-Bon Jovi

I love this picture. At the end of our Botanical Garden trip they asked me to take their picture against this tree. I love how they both made a face and I adore their pose. What I love the most is that this picture really shows how similar they are.

As the years go by and they make friends outside of each other, I hope they will remember how very similar they are. My wish is that they always look to be in each other’s life long after they HAVE to be.

Scene Stealer

My kids are both so amazing for different reasons. My son, is more like me. He is loyal, sensitive and quiet. He feels things deeply and you don’t really know what is going on behind his eyes. You have to really pull information from him because he is very shy and uncertain in his abilities. We are so similar that it is frigtening. Then there is my daughter….

She is a total scene stealer, extremely funny, very personable, knows how to wrap people around her finger for her own evil doing by knowing just what the other person does or doesn’t want to hear depending on her desired effect, is she so like my husband.

I Missed You Brother!

Sometimes being a brother is even better than being a superhero.  ~Marc Brown

This pictures is so cute to me. My son was on his first away play date. His friend lives down the street and we decided to meet them as they headed back to our house. My daughter’s arm is outstretched because she was running ahead of me to hug her brother. He is running to me and actually bypast her which just broke my heart because she was calling his name and running to him.

My Prince and Princess

What can I say? These two people make my day, every day. I love when my daughter dresses up and her brother tells her, “you look so beautiful.”

They asked me to take their picture when they were hugging. I walked away to get the camera and they were still hugging when I got back to them. They just laughed and hugged while I snapped away. I hope they always love each other as much.

In this picture, I love the way his hand is on her face and I love her hands around his middle. So cute.
