Celebrating Family Visits

Ending each week with celebrations and gratitude makes the moments in the week so much more precious. I'm so grateful to be part of this community! Thank you to Ruth Ayres and all of the bloggers! Please join us here.

Oh I'm filled with so many celebrations this week! I got to spend the last few days with my mom and my five and a half year old nephew Jack. We squeezed so much fun into a few days. They arrived from the train station on Wednesday. I'd say meeting Bella was the highlight of that day. Jack and Bella are like magnets, when they are in the same space, they are attached. Oh, to see Bella love him so much makes me happy. They played and cuddled and Jack gave her treats. She was pretty spoiled this week too. Here's my favorite picture of the two of them...



The next day we found the Lego Store and Jack was certainly in his happy place. We stopped for lunch and took a selfie...

Our last day together was spent outside. Playgrounds. Pool. Swimming. Oh there's nothing like being outside in the sunshine in the summertime. 

These days have been amazing! I'll miss the pile of Bots on my table and the pages of pictures colored for me and Tom & Jerry on the TV.

Memories made for all of us. Next year... Jillian!

  2. Happiness exudes from the pics. Family time is great especially when you're visiting. As in, you only truly appreciate things through not having them every day.

  10. "Jack and Bella are like magnets, when they are in the same space, they are attached" . The picture illustrates the truth of that statement. The joy squeezed into this visit oozes from your words and sticks to me! :)
