these are the days

I'm linking up with Gussy Sews today for her inspiration workshop. I wanted to start participating in this because I love the idea behind it:
"The purpose of this is to find inspiration and beauty around us {in real life, online, etc.}. There are no walls or limitations here. Everyone is invited and we are all amazingly talented."

She gives a prompt each week and then you use your own inspiration to interpret it.

This weeks prompt was "spend the day playing."

We spent ours at the pool, where many of our days are spent lately- trying to soak in all of the fun of summer. Growing up, my brother, sisters and I were ALWAYS in the water. Always. Watching my kids swim reminds me of those days.

It has been so fun to watch them get braver and braver. kicking their little feet as fast as they'll go.


jumping off the side over and over again..

tan lines and the smell of sunscreen.

barefeet and wrinkled skin.


juice boxes and yummy snacks


{my sweet friend made Cars 2 cake balls in honor of the end of Asher's countdown to Cars 2 Today!}

these are the moments, the times, the memories, that I know they will carry with them forever.


and I will too...


these are the days I cherish and hold on to as a mom.
the days that turn into memories .
these are the days that make the rough ones....completely forgettable.
