I had so much to do...editing, posting, laundry, meals, etc. etc. etc. - the list could go on and on.

I just wanted to get 'one more thing' done to check off my list to get ready for the rest of our trip from Alaska to Argentina.

But then I read from NieNieDialogues- the blog written by the mother who was in a plane crash that burned 80% of her body and almost killed her. Then I felt really grateful, and I really knew that I should sit outside in grandma's backyard with my kids and have a picnic.

So we did.

And it was so much fun. I enjoyed the moment.

   Watermelon is a favorite

These two boys could eat the whole thing

My boys

Now the 'evil' eyes




Ahhh...how enjoyable to just sit and enjoy the day?

Have you enjoyed the moment today?

    They are soooo adorable! I would love to have a picnic with them! I like Parker’s Moose antlers he did on Atlas. Atlas is just getting cuter all the time, if that is possible!! Did they learn those ‘evil eyes’ from Grandpa Fred? haha! Love and miss you all!!

    I agree…reading the Nie Nie Diaries does just that for me, too. Should it be so hard to stop and appreciate each day and moment? Somehow, in a world full of other responsibilities…it is! Thanks for the reminder!

      It shouldn’t be that hard, but it definitely is, unfortunately. We need reminders like this everyday. 🙂
