deepening our roots

yesterday... some good mama & me... real one on one time... was exactly what was needed!
campbell wanted to go "scouting"... so she grabbed her camera... i grabbed mine...
and we headed out to frolic on a nearby trail!

What a fantastic pictoral that she can look back to one day. How special! I felt an ounce of jealousy reading this - sometimes in the hussle and bussle of every-day-ness here, I don't have many moments like this. So important. Life is what it is, and as long as you are soaking it all in....it is GRAND, isn't it?
