My happy place

My happy place is looking at photographs of precious moments in the life of my babies. Usually involving big smiles, but not always. Here are some of my recent favorites...

During Hurricane Irene. The first few minutes were fun...



This face gets me every time...



It's not just their big smiles that get me here. It's that when we start to tickle one, the other wants in on it. Clara will even put herself in position. And Luke... he doesn't just want to laugh himself. He wants to watch Clara laugh. That's love...



One of her favorite songs involves "bowing to your partner." It cracks us up every time she does it...and the fact that she's dressed as an SU cheerleader doesn't hurt either...



Luke shocked us all when just reached right in to pet the giraffe over and over. Really, Luke? I wouldn't have pegged you...



This is right before she kissed the goat...



And this is right after...


Yes, she kissed a goat. It all happened very fast.

And then there's this adorable tongue, which always seems to be escaping...



And this face...


As one friend said, happiness in a photo.

So cute, I'll show another. I could just melt...


That is pure joy.

And pure joy is what they bring me.
