Crab Festival 2012

There have been times in motherhood when I have not had fun. Times when I desperately want to have a family moment, times when I want us all to be clean & dressed, out & about, beautiful smiling faces... These times dont come, very often. For me personally they are very rare. I can feel as though I might be the only mom that does NOT have fun with their kids. But deep down inside, we are all going crazy...
OK, away from my rant. This past weekend we had a family day at the 2012 Crab Festival. I took the kids there by myself last year. It had been hot and terrible, but I was so proud of myself of beating the heat and psychotic notions of my children. I had been alone (Mark was still in Monterey finishing his thesis), but I wanted to kids to enjoy the local activities.....
But this year Mark (the hubs) was with me, and we had a BLAST. It was the first time in a long time that I was constantly smiling and laughing WITH the kids. My favorite part being the bumper cars, I cant even remember the last time I had been on them, but we went, and laughed.
Aw, this past Saturday was a day I will always remember.
** Also looking back at photos from last year and seeing how the kids have grown put a tear in my eye. The days are LONG but the years go by FAST.**
