my dreamer

"There are dreamers and there are realists in this world. You’d think the dreamers would find the dreamers and the realists would find the realists, but more often than not, the opposite is true. You see the dreamers need the realists from keeping them from soaring too close to the sun… And the realists? Well without the dreamers, they might never get off the ground.”

Thanks for keeping me off the ground babe. I love you.

nothing loved is ever lost

Although it was not under favorable circumstances we got to see Conrad's grandparents from Maine again this week AND I got to meet his Uncles, David and Rob.

A perfect celebration of Cal's life...

Gone Golfin

Don't think of him as gone away
his journey's just begun,
life holds so many facets
this earth is only one.

Just think of him as resting
from the sorrows and the tears
in a place of warmth and comfort
where there are no days and years.

Think how he must be wishing
that we could know today
how nothing but our sadness
can really pass away.

And think of him as living
in the hearts of those he touched...
for nothing loved is ever lost
and he was loved so much.

-Ellen Brenneman

We love and miss you Cal. You're in our hearts always.

Very Important People

[at least that's what our tickets said]

Last weekend our awesome friend Tim got us VIP tickets to the Arts Festival. We had so much fun eating, looking at the booths, and visiting with friends.  Tim carried around the diaper bag so everyone thought he was my baby daddy. He went along with it like a natural telling people how happy we are with our perfect little daughter. Ha!

My sister (click here to view her blog) Jana Lyn, and her husband, Cole, went to New York for a couple days so their 2 daughters stayed at my mom's house. I spent most of the weekend over there playing with Adelaide and Scarlett.

 Conrad and I took Adelaide and Milli swimming. We got an idea of what it would be like to have 2 kid.... lots of work but so fun!  (Hey maybe that will be us in 5 years?!)

After swimming I took the girls to get ice cream. I turned around after about 15 seconds of driving and they were both asleep! They both wanted to hold their own money to buy their ice cream and I told them if they lost it they wouldn't be able to get their ice cream. Adelaide was still holding it tight even in her sleep.
