Have you ever had one of those moments in time when all seems well with the earth...these days they are few and far between, but last night was one of those times for me.
My mom had bought the kids some cute little bug catching supplies, so we decided we would go out and see if we could catch some fireflies.
It didn't take long, we could see them all lit up the second we hit the front porch, but that wasn't the fun part....
It was watching my kids be kids...(I know mushy), it was just one of those moments that I was so glad had my camera on me (that usually never happens).
When I was a little kid thinking about what it would be like to have kids of my own, this is exactly what I envisioned. Watching them running around on a Summer night with a full moon and just having fun without a care in the world.
I love taking my kids to places I think will thrill them. For some reason I never think about our own backyard. Sometimes I think we all just want a good ole' Thursday night catching fireflies and playing UNO, which BTW my daughter won all 5 games of last night! Way to go DEE!
I know these are the moments I will remember the most and when my sister and I get together these are the things we talk about...in fact I just told my daughter last night as she was gearing up that my sister and I used to catch fireflies and rip their light off and wrap it around our finger for rings! She was disgusted to say the least. And when I tell my son that in a couple of years, he will no doubt think that's the coolest thing ever!!!
Thank you God, for fireflies and Thursday nights ;)
