Happy Birthday Daddy!

 Happy Birthday Daddy!
Hope this year is full of happiness!

What a wonderful day for a birthday.
We spent the afternoon together as a family at Lake MacBride.  We had a picnic, walked trails and visited the raptor center. 
The day was BEA-U-TIFUL.
The beauties enjoyed the fresh air, as did mommy and daddy.  There were no bugs, no other people and lot of sunshine and memories to be made.
The beauties liked this tree.  It was old and rotting, however they found it so interesting.  Farrah even found a corncob tucking inside the hollow part.  She was amazed to learn that the squirrels probably ate the kernels.
 Jocelyn smiling pretty at the raptor center.
We learned about injured birds of they eat mice...and yes, they are dead ones.
They lady working there told the beauties about the owls.  She explained she had to track how much they are fed and how much they eat.  Silvie and Chloe both wanted to pet the mice, which were dead.  The woman kindly responded with, "ask your parents."  Ummmm, no.  That answer came quickly.
 Chloe is awe.
She loves birds of prey. 
Eagles, hawks and owls are her most THAT order.
 Silvie and Chloe enjoyed the nature walk the most.
They were not ready to go and would have hiked all day.
Silvie is ready to camp.
 Jocelyn also liked the nature walk.  She wanted to see penquins though, which obviously, we saw none.  She was a bit disappointed in that.
 Little Farrah...not at all the nature type.
She was done with the hike before it began, "carry me mommy." 
"I'm tired mommy."  "Can I take my hat off mommy?"  "I'm hot mommy." 
 Daddy enjoyed his birthday very much.
Being outside with his favorite ladies in the world.
 Not much could be better than that.

Oh "Hootie" make me cry

I am still trying to write a post...and I am still struggling...
But it is coming together.
Meanwhile, the lyrics to this song make me tear up and think of how fast our Beauties are growing up.  If you are not familiar with it, you should google it and listen...I can say for sure you will tear up if you have children.

Darius Rucker
It Won't Be Like This For Long

He didnt have to wake up
He'd been up all nite
Lay'n there in bed listen'n
To his new born baby cry
He makes a pot of coffee
He splashes water on his face
His wife gives him a kiss and says
It gonna be OK

It wont be like this for long
One day soon we'll look back laugh'n
At the week we brought her home
This phase is gonna fly by
So baby just hold on
It wont be like this for long

Four years later bout four thirty
She's crawling in there bed
And when he drops her off at preschool
She's clinging to his leg
The teacher peels her off of him
He says what can I do
She says now dont you worry
This will only last a week or two

It wont be like this for long
One day soon we'll drop her off
And she wont even know your gone
This phase is gonna fly by
If you can just hold on
It wont be like this for long

One day soon she'll be a teenager
And at times you'll think she hates him
Then he'll walk her down the isle
And he'll raise her vale
But right now she up and cry'n
And the truth is that he dont mind
As he kisses her good night
And she says her prayers
He lays down there beside her
Till her eyes are finally closed
And just watch'n her it breaks his heart

Cause he already knows
It wont be like this for long
One day soon that little girl is gonna be
All grown up and gone
Yeah this phase is gonna fly by
He's try'n to hold on
It wont be like this for long
It wont be like this for long

you can listen the the song here:

I just wanted to make note, I am trying to write a birthday entry...the last 5 years have been amazing.  My tiny little babies are 5.  I am having a difficult time, because I have so many emotions.  The tears are I will continue soon.

Happy Birthday x THREE


 Happy 5th Birthday to my "baby" beauties
Jocelyn, Farrah and Silvie!
Five years has gone by so quickly.

It's gone by so fast that it feels like only moments since you came into my life.
5 years...5 wonderful years.
