Looking Up

Our first really glorious sunny day started out with moving a yard of much needed soil over the top of my new raised beds. The kids occupied themselves. Then Alex made us some peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for lunch, and we ate them outside. After that, the little kids took a nap and I did a bunch of work in the yard. Alex went to a friends house, and when she woke up, Cyan invited two friends over... whom soon were completely wet in the hose and pool (that was drug out just for the occasion).

When the sun started to cool off Cyan ended up over at their house watching "Enchanted". While the big kids were gone, Logan and I laid on a blanket in the back yard and watched planes go by.


Can you see them? The left one is a plane and the right one is the moon...

The moon was beautiful... and as the planes went by, Logan would point his little finger up and yell "mama-mama -ma!"

It was the nicest moment I have had in a really long time. Just laying on the dry grass, looking up with my baby.

The same baby that is now begging me to put him in bed... so I must retire... but wow.

What a beautiful day.
