love : part I

I didn't have a lot of opportunities to grow bigger this day,
it was more about capturing than it was expanding.
So be it!
I'll just keep trying until I'm satisfied. :)

We had a date in the late morning for our local Kid Paradise again (bounceback passes),
so off we went.

I love that we're free to play when we want to...

I love that a fear was quashed today!
This slide has been a bane for us--but no more.
Today I bought tickets for all of us, and I sat at the top helping him until he was quite finished with his fear.
(It's big, but it's also straight down at the very top.)

To home, please - the mother had a serious need to be in actual daylight instead of fluorescent lights for an hour before the sun went down.

Here's some more love -

I love home.
Even this sixty year old house with its mint green and pink bathroom

The Girls bathroom, as my children say.

even my kitchen cupboards that are the lightest grandma pink in the deepest top corners

in all of its frumpiness and quirkiness,

Maddie's room.

I am still so, so thankful for these walls that love us so well-ly.

Trev's room.

I love that my children are both perfectly comfortable now being downstairs by themselves!!

In the rumpus room, downstairs.

I love that we have enough space.

In the den.

I love that it's strong, and safe, and a place for and of love.

Now. Let's see what Love is in store for today...
