Healthy kids

The thing I love most about being a mom is doing stuff with my kids.

We especially enjoy being active outdoors. The cool, sunny, Fall weather was calling us to come out to play. 

So we did!

First Gavin and I had breakfast with our friends Adria and her adorable daughter Alana.

We headed to our favorite park and brought our bikes along.

Gigi was quite the helper, first showing Gavin how to pedal.

And sharing her bike with a new friend and pushing her along as she learned to pedal.

Then some tree climbing and general park play.

I relish the fun and bonding I have with my growing children. Experiencing my kid's firsts and celebrating the acquisition of new skills, confidence, fills me with love, pride, & purpose. 

Have a good week friends!

The Little Things

Thankful for the little things today...

Gavin waited all morning so that he could share his freshly baked gummy-bear-laden-cookies with Gigi (until we picked her up from school). He wanted to give her a treat and "surprise" her.

And later he ate all his veggies (first) during dinner!

Last, but not least, I found this picture of us that Gigi kept under her pillow. Such a sweetheart :-)
