My inspiration for this record of my days:

“The biggest mistake I made [as a parent] is the one that most of us make. . . . I did not live in the moment enough. This is particularly clear now that the moment is gone, captured only in photographs. There is one picture of [my three children] sitting in the grass on a quilt in the shadow of the swing set on a summer day, ages six, four, and one. And I wish I could remember what we ate, and what we talked about, and how they sounded, and how they looked when they slept that night. I wish I had not been in such a hurry to get on to the next thing: dinner, bath, book, bed. I wish I had treasured the doing a little more and the getting it done a little less” -Anna Quindlen

Simon's birthday

Yes, I am aware that Simon's birthday was 6 months ago.

I actually just realized that I didn't document it!  He turned 4, which means he got to have his first "friend party."

I sure love my little "Mr. Minator"

Here are a few pictures:
We borrowed the "Payne train" and took rides around the property.  It was a hit!

These are some easy boys to entertain!  They just played outside, and had a great time!

His Lightning McQueen cake

The excitement!

Cousins Grant, Clark, and Collin.  Friends Mazden, Tigger, Colton, Cade and Pace.

Everybody checking out the goods
