Summer 2011. Our Story.

All summer I had very good intentions of blogging our adventures, daily life and stories.  HOWEVER, as you can tell, that didn't happen.  July went by, then August and here we are through one week of September! Having said that, my main hope in doing so was to inspire you all to document your daily life.  Not only the trips and the 'big moments' but life as it happens. Every year seems to go by faster, and with that comes the blurring of memories.  Yes, I would have remembered we went to the Island for vacation.  But these photos take me back.  Back to the small details.  And to me, that is what life is about.

I am thankful I can look at them and remember.... that look of my 10 year old boy, the silliness of my 7 year old, both of them facing their fears at an adventure park, backyard football, boys being goofy, grandmas giving hugs, curiosity at the aquarium, and us.

For me each of these photos bring back conversations, smells and sounds.  Life stories.  And that's all that matters.

5 years from now, what do you want to remember?
