Random Happy Thoughts

~I am glad there are still places like this in the world and that I can enjoy them with the ones I love.




~I love pictures like these.


~We went on a picnic on Sunday to my parents property. While making my kids a sandwich, my mom asked Tess "Do you want a white bread sandwich or a whole wheat sandwich?" To which Tess replied "I want half a wheat sandwich."


~I love cleaning off my CF card and finding pictures like these. My kids want to remember moments too.








~I took Tess and her friend, Lana and Sophie out to lunch today to Wendy's. They made me feel like a rock star mom when we went over the on-ramp and they squeeled with delight as it tickled their tummies. Add another star to my status when we went to a local party store and picked up free yellow balloons. I had as much fun with them today as I have with my girlfriends.


~At said lunch, I met a boy who had just graduated from high school. He had a backpack on with a sign on the back that said "Going the Distance". I asked him what that meant and he said he is crossing the country on foot. So I bought his lunch.

~My husband is the best! With no reasons he does things like this:



~I was able to talk on the phone today to my favorite person for threeish hours. I needed that!


~Mil was in an art class this summer and her teacher had this little art gallery set up. Way to go Amelia!



~I get to make a pinata tonight. I haven't played with paper mache in YEARS!


~I am really glad that I am no longer in high school.


~My baby likes the dirt.

Jer is so romantic. I have a really fun game that I think Amelia and Riley would LOVE. It's from the 90s. Tales of the Crystals. All about imagination etc.

Your happy thoughts made me happy too.
Thoes "kid" pictures remind me of the time my sister gave each of her children (she had five at the time) a disposeable camera to tack their oun pictures with while they were in Disneyland. She thought they would make a fun scrapbook to remember their trip by. . . she ended up with about 180 pictures of people's butts. that it the leval they were at and what they saw if they looked straight ahead. too funny.

Oh, that post was absolutely darling! I loved the random shots on your camera. They made me giggle. And thank you for taking Lana and Tess out to eat. Lana is still talking about it.

I'm glad you are finding peace in the world. You need it and deserve it right now. And I'm glad you can pass that along to your sweet daughter at this special time for her. I love you all!

The pictures of your camp out lunch bring back memories for me. I loved the time our families spent together up there. I hope my kids get to have the same type of memories from their childhood.

I get the same random shots on my camera if I let it get out of my hands.
