Flying By

Wow, July has been a whirlwind and probably won't stop until August gets here.  While having lots of fun with family at the beach, fireworks, weddings and many other amazing locations in three short weeks, it makes me realize just how time flies by.  But, when I look at pictures, especially from last year this time, I realize just how fast my child is growing up (and how much older I'm getting:)).  I swear I'm still 25 in my head and she's still a baby! 

Savoring every moment is sometimes hard for me, something I have had to learn.  But, I am doing better.  Are you savoring your summer?  Enjoy every moment.  A few pictures to share from our latest travels...

If you are a parent, you have to read this!

I am compelled (and I mean compelled) to tell you to please read this blog by Seattle Mama Doc about this terrible thing that continues to happen more and more...parents leaving their kids in the car in the summer heat and they die!  This article she talks about from The Washington Post, which won a Pulitzer Prize, is heart-wrenching and you HAVE to read it.  This can happen to anyone, especially those of us that are running in so many directions, working, being moms, being wives, husbands, employees, friends, etc.  Please, please tell every parent you know about this and don't let it happen to you!
