Memory Lane

I hope you'll indulge me for just a few moments. I've been scrolling through old photos and I came across pictures from a day trip we took to an island off the coast of Maine. Aidan was 4 months shy of his 5th birthday, Clay was a month shy of 3, and Lucy was 2 months old. The kid's grandmother and aunt and uncle and 5 month old cousin came as well.

We spent the day walking around the island. It was warm but not hot, a beautiful September day. We had a lovely picnic lunch in a secluded back yard. After poking around the streets and neighborhoods we spent a couple of hours exploring the tidal pools and rocks and shells on the beach. Lucy was still ultra portable and was digging her sling. I love to remember the days that we carved out specifically for each other.

These memories help me to shift my focus away from the daily stress and crap. They help me to look ahead to the next opportunity we have to relax and just be together.

Ok, and can you believe the chunkamonka that was is my lovely daughter? Have you seen such beautiful skin?

Have a great weekend, folks.
