There is nothing better than eating a summer dinner outside.
We hold hands and say grace.
My heart melts every single time I see these small hands holding on tight. It was time to finally snap a picture.
The food is simple.
Of course not everyone stays seated the entire meal.
There are swings to distract.
Bubbles to blow.
There are always diapers to be changed.
I both cherish and protect this family time. We eat together almost every evening; discussing our days, plans for the future and the occasional knock-knock joke. Sometimes we linger. Most of the time we end up running in different directions. There are dishes to be done, baths to be given.
But in the summer we linger.
I mentioned to Alex that we have very few pictures of me and the boys together and asked if he could snap a few over the summer. This is the best so far…mom drinking wine at dinner…
