I'm so thankful to live next to this beautiful view. I'm so thankful for being able to be with my children everyday (even if some days are full-on crazy and I might pull my hair out). And I'm so thankful for a warm, sunny day on this last day of October. Not sure what I did to deserve all this, but I sure am thankful.

Riley has gotten to the throw-myself-on-the-floor-in-a-fit-if-I-don't-get-what-I-want phase.
I think if she had been my first child I would have worried about it more. But she's not, so I just giggle and turn around. She picks herself up after a few minutes and will walk away like it never happened.
Escher has started to say, "look mom, there she goes again! "

Escher through a fit when we had to leave,but the sun was setting and it was getting chilly. He screamed at me all the way home, and then when we got to our driveway he stops me , puts his arms around my waste and says "Mommy, I just want to tell you something. Iwant to tell you that I love you. So much. I love you so much Mommy."
And for the most part, the rest of the evening went reallywell. Kids are so funny. Their little brains go a mile a minute. You never know what's coming next!
Sometimes when I have my big camera with me I get so focused on having correct settings that I forget that photography is all about capturing moments. Sometimes a picture might not be exposed correctly, or cropped right, but the memory shown makes the picture special.
While we were running on the beach this evening Escher snuck under my legs. Riley noticed and came barrelling towards us and she, Escher and myleg had a fun family hug. Moments like this make parenting worthwhile.Because we all know time outs and bossy kids aren't rewarding at all ;-)
