optimistic abandon

When was the last time you gave something special your 'all'? When did you pull so hard for a dream that you got red-faced and your hands hurt from your simple and adamant refusal to let go? When did your effort simultaneously exhaust and invigorate you? For what (or whom) are you willing to dig in your heels, get rope burns on your palms, and slide across the dirt on your behind? When did you last pursue something with the optimistic abandon of a child?

celebrating meredith

yesterday we had an amazing time celebrating my sisters accomplishment of getting her masters. i am so proud of her. the past year she has become one of my closest friends, due to this. in many ways, without her i would feel lost. not only do i think the world of her, but she is owen's favorite person, his 'mer mer'.

Day 3

The day is not over, but I sure feel like heading to bed for the night. Owen is still sleeping after a full 2hrs at the beach. I'm just not a full-day beach person, and since the breeze picked up and the sun went behind the clouds, I was ready to head home, as was Memee. Owen on the other hand took his good ole time getting the car. Memee bought a really cool kite yesterday and we had the perfect weather to fly it. That thing took off and I had to angle the camera just to get the kite and Owen and Memee in the frame.

Day 2

Busy day playing today. Memee and I took O back to the park this evening to try and run him ragged. I think he out ran both of us! All he wanted to do was ride his bike up and down the walking path. We came across some older boys who were riding bmx bikes and going off a big jump. Owen decided that he could do that jump too. So I held onto the back of his bike and off we went barreling down the jump, wish I could have grabbed video or a photo of it. At the end of the jump he would raise his hands and yell "I DID IT" as if he did the whole thing no-handed. He now wants a bike like the big boys, so that he can jump too!

Day 1

so i'm going to try so hard to take photos every day of what we did here in michigan, mostly because B isnt with us. and... i'm sorry if you've seen these already on twitter, facebook, ect... i just really liked the way they came out and thought they were cool considering they came from my phone.
