I’m sometimes completely taken back by all the amazing things that you can fill a single day with. We got to spend last week in this fantastic cabin by beautiful Table Rock Lake in Missouri. We hung out down by the water as the sun set over the lake, spent a day in a rented pontoon boat, hiked in the mountains, made s’mores over an open fire and laughed until we cried playing board games.
Matilda and I also got to spend hours down by the water, talking and enjoying our beautiful surroundings. We threw rocks in the water, carved our names in the rocks and talked about life. I will always treasure that time with my daughter; in fact the whole stay will always have a special place in my heart. Getting to laugh and play with your family is what makes life worth living.
Coming home from a trip like that has its perks too. I have appreciated just taking it easy at home with the kids. I even got to take a couple of naps with them, which is most definitely one of my favorite things to do. We all cuddle up in bed, hold hands and say just how much we love each other. It’s the sweetest thing.
Here are some images from weeks 48-49 of 2013. Can’t believe this year is almost over. Hope yours has been as filled with wonder as ours has. Wish you all the best!
