Together Time

As our kids grow and become more independent, it becomes harder and harder to spend time together as a family. That's why we were thrilled when our son told us that he will be able to get away this weekend and help us to celebrate our daughter's 21st birthday. We are truly blessed to have this time together.

If I can give one piece of advice to parents it would be to cherish every minute you have with your children. It's not always easy, and parents need time for themselves too, especially when the kids are young. But they grow up so fast, and before you know it, they're gone off to college, off to begin their own lives.

Live in the moment! Enjoy the journey!

What a wonderful picture. Yes, you are right the time flies by. It doesn't matter if you have one or five kids, it is gone before you know.

Hope the birthday celebration was a lot of fun! 21 is a big step.

Take care,

What a great time, I love it when my kids all get to come home at the same time. They do grow up fast. Now I am enjoying having grandchildren..they are the greatest.
Glad the celebration was fun.
