Splash and Smile

We got in the pool.  In March.
Even for Georgia, that’s early.

(Oh.my.stars.  Look at that adorable baby!)

The baby loved it, even if it was a bit cold.


My big boy, who has a love-hate relationship with water, jumped in!

My little fish ran straight off the diving board with not a single shred of hesitation.


And my little man splashed and smiled and splashed and smiled.

We had dinner with friends and we talked to real!live!adults!
while the children played hide-and-go-seek.
It was so very nice that we didn’t feel time passing.
And so we came home late and slipped the children into their beds.
Then Marshall and I sat out back on pollen-covered chairs in the cool night air and talked quietly.
And we looked up at what seems to be a vast nothing-ness but is really this massive huge-ness.
That always blows my mind.

Y’all…this is my life!
(Sometimes I just have to say that out loud.)

    Don’t ever lose sight of that love. Live, laugh, love, but always communicate.

    I love it! Your words take me there, my friend. And I love those baby thighs!

    I love that little swimsuit! It’s been so warm here and then in the 30’s today! But warming up again this week.
