Blogging gives my family JOY!

This showed up on my Facebook Memories from 2012.

I couldn't remember where I took this picture and had to ask my son. This is one reason that I blog. Seeing and reminiscing on days passed brings my family and me a lot of happiness. I can't begin to tell you how much we've scanned through this blog to find specific memories! I honestly wished I wrote more, and there were definitely missed opportunities. Now that they are getting bigger, I suddenly feel like I'm out of time.

Matthew was about 8 years old here. He told me that he was showing off his acrobatic skills to the little-little kids. I couldn't help but chuckle that my now almost 15-year-old was giddily telling me this story. I remember spending so much time at the Navy Pier Chicago for the Chicago Children's Museum when my kids were little. We purchased a membership and were there at least once a week.
