I Wish I had Brought my Camera

Last night it was a little crazy (visitors) around dinner time. Around 8:30 we realized that we were hungry and didn't want to make dinner so you know what that means. We threw the kids in the van and away we went. Two blocks later we were at Callaways. Corey and I used to eat there a lot more before we had kids. It's kinda pricey and not really a family place, but really good italian food. The hostess sat us down in the front part of the restaurant which was totally empty (as far as people are concerned). We were all sitting around talking about school, the new store, and all of the in betweens. Somewhere in the middle of Corey doing magic tricks with the napkins and Abby shooting her straw wrapper at me I sat back, looked out the window and thought about what a cool little town I live in. I looked at Kate in her car seat snoozing, the kids laughing at Corey, listened to John Mayer singing in the background and realized how great my life is. I had a feeling like things are just perfect right now. We have had some major kinks in our life which I didn't know if we'd ever get through, but sitting there last night I realized how worth it it was to go through all of the craziness and the kids will never remember those times. Anyway, I was wishing that I had my camera so that I could capture that moment when I really realized how blessed I feel to be where I am (which is nowhere near where I need to be, but that's okay for today). Have a great weekend :)

I am glad that you have made it through those kinks! Ragnar has really enjoyed Coreys friendship and his advice. Thanks for helping us try and work through ours! You are pretty lucky!

I love perfect moments. They are few and far between, but so sweet. I'm happy for you!
