Too many cute ones from this week…
Too hard to limit myself to only one.

Any time we drive north, through the gorgeous Skagit Valley, we make a mandatory stop at Snow Goose Produce for some of the best, and definitely the biggest, ice cream around!

Still catching up on our weekly photo series…

Four weeks ago, we were at Green Lake with some of our best friends, The Gallardos, who were visiting from Florida. The kids were stopping to explore as we walked around the lake and this particular moment of exploration, that we happened to even catch on camera, turned from fun to terrifying really quickly when Jack fell off of the dock edge into the water. (See him in the above photo starting to lose his balance?)
It all happened so quickly, thank goodness, but it was still horrifying thinking about all of the “what ifs…”. Jack was brave, but it also hit him like a wave as his shock wore off and he processed his own fear.

A few hours after the incident when we were alone, he said to me, “Mama, do you know what I was thinking about when I was in the water? I was thinking I might not ever see my house again…”. Oh, you can believe that I had trouble choking down my emotions with that comment.

This little boy…I love him more than all else. And, sometimes it feels like I can’t possibly keep him close enough.
