This labor day weekend was spent perfectly.
Poolside with friends and a feast of brisket and ribs for dinner on Saturday. Followed by a Bean bag tournament win! Go Team Prego - the only one not drinking, I bet early on that my team just might come out on top (smile).
And family time on Sunday. I just love my family. Everyone being around my grandparents kitchen table sharing funny stories, catching up, times when everyone is talking at once and my grandparents sitting back and enjoying the fact that all of their kids + most of their grand kids were there. I would not trade my family or those moments for a million bucks. Not ever.
I left that evening and the song "Stop this Train" by John Mayer popped in my head. I just had to listen to it. The lyrics at the end,
"See once in a while when it's good
It'll feel like it should
And they're all still around
And you're still safe and sound
And you don't miss a thing
'til you cry when you're driving away in the dark."
That's my family. That's those moments that I will forever cherish.
I may be fifteen weeks pregnant and super hormonal/emotional, but that kind love for my family will always be in my heart (sniff, sniff).
And then I got home to this sweet boy who, btw, had his very first beef rib bone and LOVED it so much he ate it in less than 20 minutes.
I just could not help but smile and bust out of my emotional mood. I mean look at that face and his happy content smile. A little dusty and dirty around the edges from playing in my grandparents back yard, but still so very cute to this proud mama. My little Happy Henry-Camper.
Thanks for dropping by :)
