We took a long weekend and spent some time in Durango, CO. Brett helps ref a soccer tournament there, lodging provided. and me and the girls hang out and reap all the benefits of his hard work :O)
|there is so much I love about this photo, but mostly that they did this on their own|
It is a cute little town and we always love going, plus it is just some different scenery for the girls. Apparently 2 out of the 3 girls get car sick though, not fun. But you know what all 3 of the girls did awesome all weekend! We had so much fun, they loved the condo, all the outside time, the shaved ice, couch beds, the bungy trampoline, honeyville, the swimming, the parks, and the late nights.

|my big girl|

|sneaking in time with dad|
|sarah just went up and hugged him, so sweet|
|Daddy hard at work|
|they were so exhausted they slept in past the bright morning sun|
|photos I rarely get|
|Norah in timeout.....we all need it sometimes|
|yep, the bag of popcorn is as big as her and so delicious!|
|she doesn't even look like a baby!|
|it was worth the $9 each for 2 minutes, thanks for earning that money babe!|
|especially for Norah, even the guy helping to bounce her was laughing and smiling at her reaction|
|ummm lets try a photo later|
|ok, ti's really late, but much better!|
The only thing that is slightly hard for me is mothers day. It usually always falls on the same weekend as the tournament and mothers day is just an weird and hard day for me.
I think it is hard for me because...
because I feel a little isolated and alone (since Brett is working) on a day that is emotionally hard
because I cannot truly celebrate being Norah's mom because a part of me will always know that gift is Carrisa's
because Carrisa only had one mothers day with Norah
because Norah made me a sweet gift of a heart necklace, to say "I love you" and that sweet little gift was meant to be for Carrisa
because I will always be reminded of the amazing gift of motherhood and how quickly it can be taken away
All 3 of my girls are such a blessing a gift and I love being a mommy, just wish I could share that with my sister.
|well ,we tried a photo....|
|and anytime I was feeling sad I would look at Sarah's hair and instantly laugh|
