A Moment

I love this time of year.

This is what I've been so anxious about.  I looked at these trees with their tiny little buds at baseball practice last weekend, and I knew beauty was on the way.  They line the front of the small elementary school entrance; this is the school that is home to baseball this season.  Boy, I was right.  I tell you...someone knew what they were doing when they planted these babies.  They were calling my name.  It was just the three of us this day, but we managed to spend a little time under them.  I was sure my pictures wouldn't do them justice.



But even so, it felt like heaven.  Well, it did after I changed her dirty pull-up, and Jonah quit screaming about how awful she smelled.  Yeah, then it was heaven.  Sorry sweet baby girl, we're working on that.


Look a there.  The tooth fairy visited him twice this week.  He's loaded.


He's a Giant this season.  He was laughing and watching Jesse run around in circles (after the dirty pull-up removal).  She had not napped.  She was not normal.  What is normal?  Anyway, at times her behavior is quite shocking.


She was drunk from the blooms I'll just say.  We love you girl.


And I was drunk watching them.  You know, being a parent is trying and crazy and just wild at times, but then there are moments like this.

"Life is not the amount of breaths you take, it's the moments that take your breath away."

Guess what movie I heard that in?  TBS...last Sunday night.  It comes on a lot.  I like it a lot.

I live for more moments like this.
