     There are the certain moments that clinch your heart and squeeze it. The pain of watching your child grow into a little person is almost unbearable. Last night I had one of those moments. 
     We are a very carpe diem family. There are many times we say screw it to all responsibilities and go have fun. We laugh, play, and love deeper than most. It also allows time to pass quicker than you could ever imagine.

     Today, we embark on our first trip of the summer with many more to come. This follows oldest child's birthday party last night, which lasted until midnight. This is well past the husband's and my bedtime. This morning, we were dragging. The brood, they were not. Somehow, youngest child stays up later and he thinks this is his cue to wake up an hour earlier the following morning. So, this morning the husband and I were forced into the day with enthusiasm brought on by three children still on a sugar high from birthday cake and Pepsi the night before.
