Once Upon a Time

Once upon a time, there was a yard busy with the flurry and business of children. They were of the formidable ages of 6 months to 6 years.

The wrestling, screaming, loud chases were heard throughout the hillside.
There were the other quiet ones as well who enjoyed looking over the nature discoveries Maama L. delivered to the door.

What is this weed??

Faces to love, friends from the start

The rough-n-tumble that the camera catches. Serious and smiling.

They have it down pat.

Usually the one happily chased, but she joins in the fray.

Is it any wonder he cries when we go INSIDE?

The dreaming princess

Tough and gentle

Sweaty and rosy cheeked

After battling still friends

Still dreaming

The Disappointed Man Who Did Not Get a Meatball Sub.

The End


  1. i love this entry style! "more more!" cries the peanut gallery! though maybe the man should get a meatball sub in the end.

  2. LOVE this! The pic of Bannon, Dan and Matt is priceless. So funny--my rough and tumble boys and yours are well matched! Thanks for sharing this! Thanks for sharing your home and life with my kids. Love you!

  3. love this...the day captured in pictures! Wasn't that weed odd? Love the rough and tumble, but really love that girl ready to take them on! YOU GO GIRL-Abby!!! And the picture of the princess I can hear her singing...a little Cinderella, or is it sleeping beauty? And he might not have gotten a meatball, but that plate looked filled with chocolate! So he was satisfied.
    Love you!

  4. Oh Mom. No, it's sadly NOT CHOCOLATE!!! Hehehehe!
