Our moms group went strawberry picking & Jaylee came along with us. I was so proud of Kennadie & the way she made sure not to leave Jaylee out even though all of her other friends were there. She held her hand & pulled her along, not leaving her for a moment, & she did this all on her own.
We had a late morning date at the lake-just the two of us. We packed a lunch, beach toys, an oversized blanket, everything but the towels. It didn't really matter though, it was much better letting the hot sun dry off our wet bodies.
My favorite moments spent with her are at the beach. Somehow the water & sun & sand make it impossible to feel anything but complete happiness. There are no distractions, no thinking about what needs to be done; just together, completely in the moment & giving her my all & it always feels so good.
The rest of the weekend we did more summery things-swimming, cooking on the grill, spending time with family, & eating S'mores. And it was Oma & Opa's 58th wedding anniversary. They are still so happy & in love & family is everything to them. They mean the world to me & they have taught me what family & a marriage is really about.

Looking forward to a lot more of this over the next few months.
