nowhere else i would rather be…

last night we all packed into the car after dinner for ice-cream treats at dairy queen.

something so simple, but still my absolute favorite times ever…

the FIVE of us spending time together out of the house & without any outside influences (texts,computers,phones… etc…)  for just awhile. it is only some ice-cream & a walk around the lake but it reconnects us, it reconnects me to my husband & my kids.  just a little time to talk & laugh & be dorks together is all it takes for us to remember what our family of FIVE is all about.

of course they humored me & sat in front of the camera for some self-timer shots…

they were all laughing at me because i pushed the button on the camera & then tried to get sophia out of her stroller & get into the shot before it went off. HA. I MADE IT…

love those smiles!!

these two make me laugh every-day, they drive me nuts every-day, they help me every-day & they make me so proud to be their mother every-day…

when they are both asking for stuff, asking to go here or there, constantly needing something or to be doing something or eating something… you know, being teen-agers… shane & i just look at each-other & laugh because they may drive us nuts sometimes but WE KNOW WE ARE RAISING AMAZING PEOPLE, they are amazing teen-agers & we know how lucky we are to have them…

of course we all had great entertainment because i shared my ice-cream cone with sophia, her first…

yep, she loved it…

of course, she wanted to hold the cone for herself…

sorry sophia, your just not quite big enough to handle that cone all by yourself yet, soon baby girl, soon…

love you guys. so much. remember, it is always unconditional love from your dad & i.
