Sometimes, every once in a great while,
there are moments so wonderful
that you realize they are magical while they are happening.
Last week, we stayed at the beach on night on vacation until dark.
We ate big sloppy burgers from Thomas',
and we were all full and happy and content.
We got silly and giggly,
and Lana was dancing around acting wild (so rare for her),
and Tucker was throwing mudbombs and trying to photobomb our selfies,
and Dan was happily hunting for sandfleas for bait,
and we were all just so deliriously happy.
I wish I could have just frozen that moment in time.
No bills, no homework, no phones, no responsibilities.
Just us, happy and together.
