These Are The Days

It's not called the sunshine state for nothing. Oh' sunny Florida, how we love you. Thursday was the first time this spring that allowed for my sweet boys to immerse themselves in the pools they've been begging for me to take them to.  We all know there is nothing that wears out our little children like an afternoon of kicking and paddling.
Taking quick breaks for ice cream sandwiches and cuddles from Mom, only to turn around and make a break right back to the pool. 
For Those Who Can't Yet Eat Ice Cream And Go Swimming, There's Reading.

And My Personal Favorite... Napping! For those who can't nap (me) I simply adore watching a sleeping baby, watching my boys frolic about and relaxing outside.

We spent this sweet Sunday as a family at the local water park. Roaming the cool waters, enjoying the togetherness, where sunscreen and chlorine fills the air and the worries of the world seem to wash away in the water.

There's nothing we enjoy more than being outside, together soaking up the sun. 

With strong Daddy's who lift children in the air so effortlessly resulting in girly screeches out of my little men!


Where hearing Mommy blowing bubbles sends the boys into fits of laughter. Reminding me how fun it is to have little boys to bring me back to my childhood at the pool with Grams. Eyes burning from the chlorine, sun warming my skin, jumping off the diving board only stopping for snacks. 

Yes, these are the days.

The sweet, sweet days!

I wish I could give you a big hug there momma because I know you need one. I wanted to let you know that I am a very proud stepmom of James who was born without an aortic valve. He has had 14 surgeries in his 14 years. As if that wasn't bad enough he is breathing on 1/4 of a lung because the rest is inert. To tell you his story would take pages and pages and pages. He is terminally ill but there is always hope. Just last month he had a procedure done that was the first in the US to be done. The FDA approved it for him..previous to that it had only been done a few times in Europe. James wasn't supposed to live past day one..but he did...and now we are coming upon his 15th birthday. James' prognosis has always been less than 10%...and yet we will be getting him his permit soon. NO MATTER WHAT..always hope..always have faith....and always believe in yourself, your husband and your courageous little boys (btw they are so adorable!). It sucks and its unfair but then again has life ever been so beautiful?
