In the midst of recitals, graduations and other end-of-the-year events, our little family took a short break to the mountains this weekend. I took lots of pictures, as you can imagine. But this one stood out the most. Because this is what moms do on family vacations. We hold half-empty juice boxes. We cherish weed flowers. We sit on the swings and watch. And we are thankful for a few simple days away to be with them.


Mister Linky and I have been chatting it up for the past day or so about the fact that my blog, though lovely, is stubborn and resistant to change. In other words, the Linky isn’t working for me and we’ve yet to figure out why. I’ve noticed he is fickle on other blogs this morning as well. But I promise, mine is especially not working.
