Weekend Adventures continued

On the way home from church this morning, we couldn't resist the field of "flowers."  So we stopped and picked as many as their hands could hold.  We had two very happy girls and 4 beautiful vases of flowers on my table.  I love dandilion bouquets!  More than that, I love to make memories with our children.  It is moments like these that I want to remember, not the times that I tell them to hurry so we can get somewhere 3 minutes faster.  I have to remind myself daily that picking flowers is way more important that having a clean house.  (even when it is on the market)

I feel like we should all run in the field like Laura on Little House on the Prairie

Carl can make everything look so pretty!

Lydia spent the next 20 minutes arranging her flowers into a vase.  I asked her if she wanted to be a florist and she promptly told me, "No, I  am going to be a pharmacist mama with three children, Lucy, Sara and Thomas.  No wait the Daddy's name is Thomas."  Well, we will see what time brings...I will have good laugh if she ever dates a Thomas.

What beautiful flowers! And, yes, it did look like a Little House on the Prairie field! Good thing you had your camera ready! :)

Hey Angel, thanks for stopping at my blog, it's great to hear from you. Your girls sure are gorgeous. You asked about Jessie, she's doing very well. Her baby Bjorn turns 1 in July. He had open heart surgery in January to repair some holes. He bounced back quickly and is doing great. I think there are some pictures of him my blog from late March or early April. It looks like all is well with you. Take care.
