 A happy heart

From a full heart.
I am just soaking it all in - enjoying every minute.
My boys with their Iowa grandparents, whom they only get to see about 3 times a year.
Talks with my mom.
She gets me.
I almost miss her already - which is weird and twisted I know.
My dad making paper airplanes with Jay.
K's giggle and attachment to his "Gramma Pat".
The boys excitement over spending the day with both grandmas yesterday.
Coloring eggs.
Good Friday service.
Teaching the boys a little bit about why we are celebrating.
Such beauty.
Trying to treasure every minute until mom and dad have to leave Sunday afternoon.

Your mom looks like she is having the time of her life!!!

Try not to think about Sunday afternoon, it won't go as quickly then.
Tell them Hi for me!

Such precious moments! I know what you mean about missing them before they even go! I cry every time I say good-bye to my parents. I think I always will.

As someone who only gets to see my parents once or twice a year, I know EXACTLY how you feel. I know all about savoring every minute while still dreading the time when they leave!

Precious memories. You look beautiful, Wendi.

Walked past the baby department @ Target today, and thought of you. Praying you are feeling well and having a great Monday!

Such sweet days these...and how darling are you in that springy yellow shirt!

What a sweet post. And I understand exactly the feeling of missing someone before they even leave. I'm already missing my kids and they don't leave for college for 4 months.

Don't you just love when the simple things in life make everything {right} in the world.

Praying your time with you parents was refreshing and exactly what you needed :)
