Grady really likes to eat. Especially apple sauce.

and Zoey......well, she likes the idea of eating more than eating itself. I like this photo because it reminds me to slow down and appreciate my little rasberry. I get so involved in pushing my agenda (like getting food into stomachs so blood sugars can normalize and cells can do their job so my kids can grow etc, etc.) that I forget to stop and simply let them enjoy and experience putting rasberries on little fingers.
The art of eating.

Meet Bagel-man

Lunch can often be a tedious process but bagel-man seemed to make eating a little more enticing. Somedays I feel like patting myself on the back for the small victories like the invention of bagel-man. Somedays, I feel like I am bagel-man......I will let you make the inference.

In honor of March Madness

Dave and I recently (it was bound to happen sooner rather than later) crashed and burned on our NCAA March Madness Brackets. Thankfully we are not too upset and haven't lost any sleep over the disappointment. In honor of the underdogs, I thought I would share a few highlights from our own private March Madness weekend. (I know it looks cold to all you sissies on the west coast but 50 degrees feels pretty good to us.)

The good news despite our basketball blues is that we think our daughter might go pro in baseball.

Should I try again?

Trying again......
After a brief hiatus
I have recently been spending a few minutes here and there looking at several VERY inspiring blogs. I have been compelled to stop at a bakery on the way home from the YMCA (just because we can), take more thoughtful photographs, be more creative with my kids outside and in, to be JOYFUL about all that is around me and to be thankful for what I have. ..... and lastly, to try to restart my blog that stalled out when the summer hit last year. (I mean, it is easy to blog in the winter when it is dark at 5 p.m. but summer?) Well, I will give it another shot. Maybe, just maybe, I can, at the very least inspire someone to stay outside longer on a summer evening because I have gone inside to blog and post a lovely summer sunset.
