This was taken 3 years ago. I love that this sister and her little brother had, and continue to have, so much fun together.
Little brothers are the best...Luke, Lyle, Shane and Grady are tops in our opinion.
I'm pretty sure that these guys would make an appearance in a Hesters' version of Toy Story. They have been played with almost daily since M got the little triceratops leading the charge as a potty training reward.
G loves to dig. Give him a shovel and he is happy. The beach is a happy place for him. All that sand...all those little plastic shovels!
This is what G and his cousin J did at the beach this weekend. They dug and dug and then dug some more. They moved some serious sand.
Today, M and G are with their Giggy in the "country." She took them to visit their great-granparents for the day. How blessed I am that my children are able to know and love and have relationships with their great-grandparents!

I'm pretty sure that I found a little bit of heaven here on earth today. This glorious sunset was the end of a day that involved sitting on the beach with a dear friend eating homegrown tomatoes.
Thanks to the two beautiful women who made it all possible.

It has occurred to me this Father's Day that M and G (and I) are probably the luckiest people on the planet...
To show our appreciation, M planned and (with a little help) prepared a fabulous "breakfast for lunch brunch" for her Daddy. G's job was to keep Daddy busy...I think there was a little sword-fighting involved.
Thanks Chad, for being fabulous you!

This is a puzzle M was working on today.
In addition to working on a puzzle, she's puzzled about the following:
Do worms have eyes?
Do worms even see at all?
Do bees eat honey?
Do bees even eat at all?
Do ants sleep?
It's a good thing we have a set of old-school encyclopedias...we'll find the answers to these questions (and more, I'm sure) tomorrow.

It's been a long time since we've had a fever this high around here. Poor thing...when the thermometer finally beeped it was at 104.7! Of course, by the time M got better G was sick.
We've been watching a lot of movies around here lately...

M had a couple friends over for tea today.
Ever the planner, she set an amazing table. Check it out!
Ever the entertainer, she made sure this tea party was anything but stuffy!
My favorite part were the "playports" (not to be confused with passports) that her friends had to turn in to play after tea.
A conversation with G at 6 a.m.
Scene: I'm in bed, sleeping. (It is summer, you know.) G is (unfortunately) not.
"Mommy, can I cuddle with you?"
"Sure, I'd love to cuddle with you."
(we cuddle for about 10 seconds)
"Mommy, I'm gonna tickle your pits."
"No. Please do not."
"Awww, c'mon Mom. Ticklin' is fun!"
No, G - ticklin' is NOT fun at 6 a.m.
