Cloud Nine

In my opinion, people use the term “cloud nine” loosely when referring to experiences. Nevertheless, if I say so myself, there is truly no other words to describe the day I had with my family. Last Monday, Martin Luther King’s Day, Bean and I spent some wonderful quality time with my father and brother. My mother then joined in the festivities.


I could write an entire essay on our day, since it has been imprinted in mine as one to never forget, but I will not bore you on ALL the details.  Mom, Dad and Brian, if you happen to be reading this, thank you for the most wonderful day. I adored watching you with Bean. The relationship the three of you are developing with her, that is separate from the relationship you have with me, is such a gift. It gives me such pleasure seeing her eyes light up when you guys walk in the room.

Here are the highlights from our amazing day. It even includes a milestone: buying Bean her first big girl snow boots.

Ate a HUMUNGOUS chocolate chip cookie and got it ALL over the while carpeting (those who know my parents I found this hysterical and Mr. Man got quite a kick out of it).  L1020494





To say the least, at the end of the day she was exhausted and so was I, but we had a ball!

The description of your day reminds me so much of when my kids were little. It doesn't change all that much once they get bigger ... there were still new boots this winter and sometimes I get help with dinner. Loving your blog Lauren!
