Erin rode a pony for the first time and I knew that was on her life list of must do.
I saw a grandma and her grandson riding in the log flume. I said to Shane, "I want to be like that when I'm a grandma." He ragged on me saying I was halfway there with my fanny pack. (In my defense, it was not a fanny pack.)
We did the tube raft rides in the water park. I made Erin do it with me and Lanie. She was scared, and I thought I'd have to drag her up the stairs. I laughed so hard the whole way through the tube when she started screaming in sheer delight. It was the best! She couldn't wait to do it again. (I knew she'd love it!)
It was one of those days that you just don't want to have end.

We had dinner out, and came home to the happiest, waggiest, danciest dog. Ever.
Today, we went to David's grandson's Bar Mitzvah. Fabulous service. Meaningful. Loving. So many familiar faces ... these gatherings over years ... this is how community is built. How many times did I reach for David's hand? I told him he's my best guy. He said to Shane, "Do you hear that?!"
Overheard Anita's sister talking to a guest and saying, "Anita has the biggest heart of anyone I know."
This is so true. I've learned how to live by watching her.
