Lost in time

We are going on vacation tomorrow (!!!) but that means this week I've been mired in deadlines and grocery shopping and meetings ... trying to squeeze my 6-day workweek into 4 measly days. I will be thankful for the extra labor come Saturday when I'm reading around on a golf cart and sitting under a beach umbrella.

But the past few days have held good, memorable times, too, though. Between apple picking, birthday parties, sleep overs, and pear and grape picking, we are worn out in a really good way. Also, I taught my daughter how to eat a muscadine.

Rip, suck, spit. Moments become memories,
a child transforms like the seasons --
life doesn't get better than this.


I imagine this weekend will bring us even more amazing memories and exhausted smiles. Enjoy the holiday weekend (and keep your fingers crossed for us down at Myrtle Beach during hurricane season)! Oh, and send my sister some good vibes since she'll be solely responsible for keeping our house (and chickens) safe this weekend.

    Your kids are just too cute :)
    Have a wonderful long weekend!!

  • Bibliomama

    How lovely. What's a muscadine?

  • Kelly Miller

    WHAT'S A MUSCADINE???? Girl. I can't believe you've never heard of this fresh treat. Muscadines are a type of grape (that happen to make my favorite wine).


  • Leslie

    Oh, yum. (and well taught!) Local muscadines are the way I get over the end of Arkansas peach season. Happy vacation!

    That photograph of your daughter on the tire swing is so !!! It makes me want to get on one myself.

  • Cheri

    Enjoy your vacation! And I see Bella does the squat sit. I have one of three daughters who can do that - feet flat on the ground, but bottom not quite touching. The rest of us fall over on our backsides if we attempt it. Wondering what special degree of flexibility is required for that feat...

  • TKW

    Okay? First of all, that picture of her chomping that fruit? Awesome! Although it makes me envious of her flexibility.

    All of the photos are great, but the tire swing one is SERIOUS beauty.

  • Justine

    You know, apple picking is one thing I'm yet to do - I really should! I think my daughter would get a kick out of it too. Thanks for the inspiration and happy vacationing!

    OMG Bella is such a beautiful child!!!

    I've got an award for you. :)

    Hope you are having such fun!

  • The Drama Mama

    Ok. I came back and re-read the post, LOL. I was flyby posting earlier. I know, shame shame. I hope you are enjoying your vacation. I didn't know what a muscadine is either (and yeah I think I butchered the spelling) but she sure is cute eating it.

    Lovely pics and I hope you and your family had a great time.
