Random pictures

My friend Jodee posted this quote on her blog and I really love it.

"Extraordinary moments can happen in the middle of ordinary days. I was on a mother-daughter dinner date with Calli, who was nine at the time. Through a mouthful of macaroni and cheese, Calli giggled as she recounted a game of freeze tag she played during recess that day. Then it hit me... I will spend eternity knowing Calli as an adult. But tonight, right here, right now, and for the next few precious years, I have the rare privilege of knowing her as a child. What a gift to experience the children in our lives as children! For a brief moment during the journey of mortality, we get to watch them laugh, learn, experience, grow. Yes, in the middle of an ordinary day, it was an extraordinary moment." -Hilary Weeks

These are some extraordinary moments that I want to remember.

A new JoAnn's opened in Tooele. We went to check it out and I let the boy's pick out a little wooden thing to paint. Collin chose an airplane and Grant and Scotty found a little treasure box.

The boys love this show on Qubo called Mighty Machines. It's a show that features different kinds of mighty machines- construction equipment, fire trucks, trains, airplanes, etc. It's a little boy's dream show! And they all sing the theme song- it's so cute!!

This is Scotty helping me clean the bathroom. Dressed in his "cowboy" shirt, cowboy hat and cape! What do you wear to clean the bathroom?

Collin was helping me make salsa one day and I had him try the lime. Can you tell if he likes it or not?!?

Poor Grant- he was running around the kitchen table one day and ran right into the side of my chair. He hit so hard that the chair moved a little- with me sitting on it! The bump on his forehead in this picture appeared within about a minute. This one took a lot of kisses and hugs to feel better. But he's a brave little guy and was back to running around in no time.

Another fun outfit choice!

There's Collin- hanging out in the stroller, eating a popsicle, watching the storm clouds roll in.

This is the face of a little boy that had a lot of fun at Grandma and Grandpa's house!

Kids are the BEST!!!! Maybe I would have more fun cleaning the bathroom if I wore a costume, hmmmm. ;)

I am surprised we got the picture of Grant. He can't stand to be dirty. But he couldn't see his face so he didn't know he was dirty!

Oh that is such a good way to think! Glad I read that
