We are headed out of town tomorrow to Sunriver, Oregon for some much needed R & R!!! No t.v... no computer.... just lots & lots of family time! I am hoping to teach Tati how to ride her new bike, use her fishing pole and to read a few great books I just got :)
I can't believe how blessed we are to live on the street we live on! Not only are there about 5 firefighters and 3 police officers... There is also 3.5 yr. old Wyatt who lives next door :) On the other side of his house, lives 3.5 yr. old Gemma! They all have become fast friends! In the afternoons, they run wild through the neighborhood... I love it!
This is how Wyatt and Tati play in the backyard!! They pass things through this tiny little hole in the fence or throw toys over the fence to eachother!!
Tati, Wyatt & Gemma relaxing after playing hard!
Learning how to play baseball!
Tatianna's playroom is really getting its use :)
No matter how many new friends we will make... they'll never replace all the wonderful friends we still have in San Diego! I have made a photo album for Tatianna of all our friends who we miss so much! It's great to look through it with her and reminisce about all the amazing adventures we have had :)
This is how this beautiful day started... Couldn't have been more perfect!
Yes, I sure am one lucky, lucky mama :)
Nothing beats blowing bubbles in the backyard on a beautiful day!
10 years ago, I spent Mother's Day in the hospital with my mom . I'll never forget it and it feels as though it was just yesterday. She was in a coma and we had to choose if this was the day for her to go up to heaven. I remember thinking "NO, not on Mother's Day" how could I ever celebrate that day again when I became a mom. It just didn't seem fair or right. God has his own way of doing things and my sweet mama passed away 2 short months later. I am soooo blessed to be a mom to Tatianna and know my mom is our guardian angel. My sister shared this poem today & I thought it said exactly what I was feeling:
If roses grow in heaven, Lord pick a bunch for me~Place them in my Mother's arms and tell her there're from me~ Tell her that I love and miss her, and when she turns to smile~ place a kiss upon her cheek and hold her for a while~ Because remembering her is easy, I do it every day~ There's an ache inside my heart that will never go away.
