Mason forgets that he's too big on some playground equipment and gets stuck. But that doesn't stop him. After wiggling out he continued to play.
Hailey soaking up some sun. I think it really helps her soul.
I tried to sit under a tree to reanalyze my list but all I kept hearing was,
I tried to get a cute photo of all my kids semi-clean and while doing so someone farted so I got this pic of all of them going, "Ewww!" Better luck next time, right?
When I looked I seen the camera screen on and found these pics from Lily and Ducati.
I really don't care what they were talking about to make them laugh so hard but I love their smiles. And a moment frozen in time that they do have sisterly love. Great surprise for me! :)

A goal i have for myself is for my kids to find/be and love themselves. All of there awkwardness, uniqueness, flaws, flares, awesomeness, and everything that makes them what God intended them to be. So I'm a small influence in their lives.
( I know in the universally way I influence my kids and I always will but it's up to them to be themselves.)
But then moments like this bring a smile to my heart that radiants to my mouth. Lily dressed herself for church and wore her converse. :) she's deciding to take a small part of me today and I couldn't be more honored. I love being a mom.

While Mike, Mason, Hailey and Lily went on a rollercoaster Ducati and I sat under a tree and had a drink. I packed myself a few Mt.Dew since I only had a couple of hours of sleep since I worked the night before. She asked for a drink so I let her have a small one.
Ducati told me she needed the energy to make sure she could ride all the rides.
And away they go!
After lunch Mike and I made the plan to split up so he can take the taller kids on all the roller coasters and I would take Ducati to the kiddieland rides. Then meet up in an hour. So little miss and me enjoyed some alone time.
This picture above is so adorable! While in line Ducati jumps up and down squealing with joy and tells me, "I love Boondocks!"
I laughed so hard. Then told her that this is Lagoon not Boondocks. She says to me, "Really?"...deep thought....."I love Lagoon!"
This is where I laugh even more :)
I don't know the kid upfront with Ducati. But since she was a single rider she told the ride operator she'd sit with other kids so this helped her cut the lines and get on more rides.
Another deep thought.... then asked me, "Will fire come out it's mouth?"
I said no and she smiled and gave me a funny face.
This was such a fun hour! Just the 2 of us :)
It was such a great day! I'm so happy that we spent this quality family time. We really needed it.
When we got home Lily and Ducati took their Lagoon maps, circled all the rides they went on, and then glued them onto some poster board. They never want to forget this day EVER!
