I am livid right now because I just wrote an entire blog post and published it. And then I go to find it and it didn't publish. Then to my even deeper pleasure, I found that it hadn't even SAVED. So. Annoyed.
But here we go again anyways. This month has been so wonderful. I've felt the summer slipping away through the cracks of my fingers, despite my firm death grip. I've found myself desperate to squeeze every last drop of summer and sunshine out of the bottle. And savor every last drop as well. We have been trying to be outside as much as possible because we have learned that, in Germany, with winter comes an utter lack of sunshine.
Matching them brings me more of a thrill than it should ;)
Come visit us, and we will show you around too!
Now these next pictures are from one of my very favorite days of my life thus far! It was a completely spontaneous decision to pack the girls up to take them to the most little kid-friendly amusement park I've ever been to! I was checking, like I do religiously, the weather app on my phone and realized this day would probably be the last nice, sunshiney day for a long while, and I was determined to put it to the best use as possible.
This picture was a risky snap. And in hindsight I shouldn't have let my hands off of that Lyla girl for even a second. Mom fail, but also...cute picture right?
So glad I happened to capture the quick glance that says "just looking back to make sure you are still there and watching me". I love being their safe place, their anchor that encourages them to explore the world a little more all on their own.
Jane didn't want to leave either; as evidenced by her whining and complaining on the way back from the car. She cried out in agony "Mom! I can't walk to the car! My bones are dead!"
