It’s Gettin’ Better All the Time

I have been looking forward to this summer since last summer. I knew that this would be the summer when Charlie would be old enough to more fully participate in our epic summer adventures. Last summer he wasn’t crawling or talking. This summer he is practically running and has begun stringing together short sentences. The beauty of having two children close in age is beginning to come to fullness as they engage one another in play. Being mom is getting easier.

Not to say that having a 1 1/2 year old and a 3 1/2 year old is easy. She is a temperamental threenager and he is getting his two year molars, but it is getting easier. More fun. More engaging. And I am thankful. I am going to make it (through parenting). I am even going to enjoy it.

Today’s adventure was to the Pacific National Exhibition (PNE). I couldn’t have done it with out Aunt Justi along to help keep the kids in tow but we had so much fun. Warning, copious numbers of cute pictures coming up:

Can't go to the PNE without eating mini donuts.

Yah, Aunt Justi, your picture is published on the internet. But it's okay. You look hot.

Like I said, it’s gettin’ better all the time. And the PNE helps…
