Patriotic - Words for Wednesday

Scrambling to get the stroller fixed and the boyz ready for our local Independence Day Parade, I am mindful that this will be the first without Maus. Last year by far was our best (first time they were costumed for the event) and set the bar high to surpass 2013's awesomeness. I do miss showing her off, but more than that, I just miss her company.

I've often heard people remark how the last year or so of life with a friend who passed somehow turned out to be the best they had shared.  I can attest to this phenomenon; our last year together was certainly our best.  Maybe the specter of pending death makes one appreciate the time more; I don't know.  We had a great time any way you look at it.

I've had much fun taking all of the kidz out and around the neighborhood over the years and everyone who meets them is always enchanted by them. Though we all miss her, the Boyz and I will do just fine and remember being together while we celebrate America.


  1. That is so cool that y'all get to be in a parade. Have fun! XO, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  2. Looks like you guys are having a great time :) Happy Independence Day!
