I was looking back through my summer photos and came across these from our family vacation last month to the Dells. Water parks are not very big camera friendly, especially when I was in the water most of the time with the kids. But I did grab it from our room one evening to capture some of our water fun. I even handed it off to D at one point so I could have proof that I did indeed accompany Eli on that water slide (about twenty times).
I’m learning the value and importance of memory making and what an investment it is with my kids, with our family. And how quality time with them needs to take priority over other “stuff”. Our basement might not be finished, but we had a really great vacation with our kids. Our landscaping in our backyard needs to be done, but my E’s are still talking about going down water slides with mom and dad.
These photos make my heart happy. Because I see joy in every single one. And I know our investment was so worth it.
