As much fun as I had in Kansas City, I couldn't wait to be home with my sweet family.
We spent the morning working on some stuff around the house and then went to park to enjoy some sunshine and fresh air before lunch.
We had the best time. Matthew and Elias played kick ball. Adeline and I slid down the slide more than a dozen times.
We did lots of swinging.
We relished being together.
While at the park, I reflected on the importance of savoring the little moments, for they are fleeting.
Elias pumping his legs and swinging without help.
Adeline climbing up the playground equipment stairs, all on her own.
They grow up fast. Too fast.
And in witnessing little milestones like legs pumping and feet climbing, my heart wanted to burst.
Motherhood is such a gift.
