following them

Josh and Josiah took me on a little adventure this afternoon.

adventure 3
adventure 2
adventure 4
I happily followed my two men as we strolled through a woodsy area of a local park. After Si stopped to point at or examine every.single spec of nature, we eventually made our way to the shores of Lake Michigan.

adventure 5
And then we did something that every boy - young and old - can't seem to get enough of...

adventure 6
As you can see from the photos, I did spend quite a bit of time today following my two boys around. I simply adore seeing them together. Their relationship is precious and fun and strong and all boy. Standing back and watching them interact (as I snap away with my camera, of course!) is a joy....although nothing beats joining them in throwing stones or cuddling before bedtime or giggling over a game of chase.

adventure 7
As we threw stones into Lake Michigan today, my thoughts drifted to all the exciting new adventures that are ahead of us on the other side of that same lake. We've spent the last few days soaking up info on our new town in Michigan. By early July we'll be making the move to our new home and we couldn't be more excited!

adventure 8
I feel like the most blessed girl in the world having these two alongside of me as we discover our new normal and enjoy the adventures that come our way.

adventure 1
I don't think it's a secret...I'd follow them anywhere.
