last night was one of those nights. and by that, i mean one of those nights that you don't want to end. one of those nights that you store away in your brain, to pull out again and relive. the sun didn't set until well after 7. the temperature was perfect. and the smell in the air was one of spring. and of more warm, fun nights to come.
we had a beautiful dinner; tried out a new recipe. even cayden enjoyed it (even though he exclaimed, "i don't like it," several times). we quickly cleared away dinner to enjoy some time outside. while i was standing there, holding sawyer, the grass caught my eye. it was quickly approaching "out of control" status. i off-handedly mentioned mowing it since it's supposed to rain the next few days.
sawyer, cayden and i settled in to watch daddy mow the grass. exciting times i know! but really? sawyer was entranced by the mower and every time daddy made his way back toward him, he had a fit! all too soon, it was time to put sawyer down for bed. just me, cayden and daddy left outside. and then cayden picked up his bubble mower and helped daddy finish the yard. oh my goodness, it was the cutest thing ever. and my heart melted all over the place.
