This was the scene today as my Mama drove away. We are on our own, on our own in Fort Worth (well, sort of...I mean, Adam's parents live 25 minutes away.) Okay, so we are on our own in our little rent house. We spent the morning with our two snotty-nosed boys (literally: they have colds) at the playground at Tillery Park. Tillery Park is a community-built playground and I love it! It is quite close to our house and the playground equipment is phenomenal- so imaginative with lots of little houses and pretend-play areas in addition to the slides and swings.
The boys spent their afternoons in two baby pools in the backyard. That's the way we roll when it's hot. Bring on the water hose. Adams' parents came by and we were able to run out to Target and Dutch's for a quick bite. Let me tell you, after living 1200 miles away from family, I am loving having family nearby. It is wonderful and amazing and, Lord, help me not to ever take it for granted.
