noodles are so fun!

On this delightful and perfect summer day, I took the boys out to eat. It was a little mini date. we went to the Olive Garden and the boys decided to get pasta...yum!
Calvin is overjoyed whenever spaghetti noodles are placed in front of him. So I took this opportunity to take photos of it. It's so funny watching him suck down each noodle and he makes the craziest eyes with each and every noodle eaten. Bradley also decided to get in on the act and we heard constant giggles from the tables surrounding us. Most of the people in the restaurant were people on their lunch breaks, so I think we were the only kids/family in there. I feel so blessed that I get to work from home and spend these little silly moments with my boys in the daytime.

Life is beautiful and watching these boys suck up these noodles makes me realizes that "noodle lunch dates" really do make a difference in a child's life. I was also lucky to have my mom at home with me. I loved summertime with her because we would paint our home, sew, garden and bake. One of my favorite childhood memories was when we would play in the sprinklers outside and when we were done, mom had warm towels and root beer floats waiting for us.

Thanks Mom! Thanks for all the fun home baked birthday cakes and parties. For teaching me how to sew at the age of 6. For sewing my wedding dress and prom dress. For teaching me to be a good person and to serve others. For balancing 6 kids and not forgetting me. For making dinner for us every night and that it always tasted so good. I love you mom.

Pin It!

Cute kids. Wish I could stay home with my kids too. But I can't. I have a career and I need to make money to support my family. You are lucky. Your kids are lucky. I hope you know just HOW lucky...
