On the way to the ocean last month we made a rest stop in a little town on the East side of California. We let the boys run crazy in this dumpy little field down the street from the gas station. They were SO happy to be out of the car. Their childhood is slipping away silently. And I don’t always take the time to savor the little things I will one day miss about being the mother of two little boys. But sometimes I do. And I know these photos will be so precious when these days are goneby.
