friday sunshine.


Today the boys ran circles, chased, skipped, sprinted, examined, and played as I hobbled around the local botanical garden to stretch my back and get some (uh, slow) exercise.


They were so happy to get OUTSIDE for some fresh air and sunshine that they didn't even mind the cold. I loved the moments of breath, cold wind and blue skies as I walked in my circles around them, or walked just behind to keep up - hearing snippets of giggles and conversations, seeing races and snuggles.


I could see them every moment, but they, in their always amazing brother bond orbited in their little guy way - one moment completely with each other running ahead, the next moment, at my side holding my hand, helping me on my path, giving words of encouragement, wishing me to feel better.


We have rain, sleet and a bit of snow coming again over the weekend - but today? It was all about enjoying every ray of sunshine and observing every little detail. With my guys.
