Boy Bonding

I don't know what we would do without the Napper boys living next door! Jackson LOVES Carter and Caleb as if they were his own brothers and is simply lost when they go "bye bye" and can't play. We got a special treat this past week when Stephanie invited Jackson and I to go to the park at Lake Acworth with her and the boys. Jackson was SO excited! We fed the ducks, played on the dock, walked on the trail, played on the playground and then...they found a big puddle to splash in and got wonderfully filthy and had a BLAST! It was so much fun! Stephanie and I had to contain our swelling hearts watching our little guys enjoy each other's company (even though they see each other almost every day) and took a bunch of photos to capture the memory. How I love days like this. They remind me that childhood is very precious and we must treasure these beautiful moments with our growing cherubs. My heart aches as Jackson's second birthday nears and I long to hold him for a moment and squish his once chubby belly. Until then, I will keep dreaming of lazy Spring afternoons at the lake with our friends!
