Ruby in Africa in Montana

I love this time of year because I get a FULL day with this little love. I get her all to myself. No work, just play. This day we had an adventure to “Africa” and I immediately realized that I had forgotten a few key things for sand, sun and beach. (extra clothes! sand toys! swimsuit! sunscreen! more towels!) But we still had a blast and she didn’t mind. She had a blast with plastic bowl I found in my car, driftwood and stripped down to her undies to wade in the cool lake water.

Before my days get SUPER busy I cherish these days more than words can say. Although parenting ain’t always "‘no day at the beach’, so to speak, I constantly find myself reminding myself to remember that these moments are fleeting. To enjoy each and every moment… even the tantrums.
