baby uncle

I just cannot get enough of this picture! 
I am sooooo thankful these 2 have each other to group up with!
11 months apart... uncle and nephew! I mean COME ON! how fun is that?!?!
I love telling people my toddler son is an uncle
even today at the chiropractor with Faith the Dr asked if Brahm was hers ... then he quickly said I hope I haven't offended anyone??!!
nope that doesn't offend me

I recently took Brahm and Morgan and Alistair to the Vancouver Aquarium ... I have SOOO many childhood memories of that place and Stanley Park
it's hard to not be there and have waves of memories wash over me and flood my senses!

It's changed a lot since I was a girl but the smells are the same ... the memories feel fresh as if I was 8 years old running up and down with my childhood friends and memories of my dad calling La get back here! batting my eyes at him so he would buy me something from the gift shop .. he would.. he was extremely generous!

so taking my oldest daughter and her baby and my baby was not only creating new memories all together but a huge walk down memory lane

driving out the park I pointed out where our church used to have picnics, where the water park used to be, and trying to count how many times we rode our bikes or roller skates around the sea wall!

it's hard to find the time to be making new memories... working full time, kids, house, LAUNDRY oh my word due to toilet training we are doing a LOT of laundry! and on and on the list is like wake rinse repeat! but I want to be intentional to make the free time I do have count

I think that's what we all want

and it's hard .. the balance of it all

but for me .. it's worth it

I don't always do things right and sometimes my free time is being a zombie on the couch! and the laundry stays not put away for several days!

5 kids and all their needs is a lot 
add in a grand baby I wish I could spend way more time with

it's a little crazy a little/lot of the time 
and MOST of the time I love it
sometimes I go in to the fetal position and am in survival mode and that is just keeping it real!!
