One of the things we did while visiting with my parents…
was to go on the “light rail” system in their city.
We’ve been before…
heres a flash back memory 😉
and its always been a great time.
Today was beautiful, which made the trip go even smoother.
With temps in the mid 70’s… got to love NC!
We enjoyed a morning/afternoon out in the city.
When we got off the light-rail at our stop, we got to see not only a beautiful city, but also this tree.
I just love the colors of fall!
While walking around I decided to wear Owen in the BOBA Classic. (my husbands favorite carrier)
I am usually a mei tai or wrap kind of girl, but the BOBA is so nice on trips you know you will need a quick in and out baby carrier. It also frees my hands up.
I noticed however while walking around these fancy up-town malls…. where no children were even in sight (Oh wait, kids are in school, well most hehe) – I was getting a good many stares. People think you don’t notice, but I do. Business men especially. Maybe they looked at me because I looked so darn cute wearing Owen, YEAHHHhh lol ok. 😉 – But no, I really think when I am roaming around with 3 boys, all fairly small still… a baby on my chest, 2 holding my other hands… and I look like im in my early 20’s still (or don’t I?) – they are probably wondering “are they all hers?”
The other day I was at the Salvation Army… and I had Caleb and Taite with me.
This lady putting clothing on a shelf looked at me and said…
“You don’t look old enough to have two kids.”
I looked at her and said “Oh I don’t have two, I have three.” and smiled as I walked out.
I think these days its just not common to see women in their 20’s with so many kids.
Most people my age are just getting married! In fact almost all my brides Ive photographed get married, were older than me. 🙂
So yes… I do have my hands full…
but full of sweet blessings!
Blessings who at times try me…
Who may result in a few extra wrinkles or gray hairs (none yet! hehe -watch me find grays tomorrow!)
Behold, children are a gift of the LORD, The fruit of the womb is a reward. – Psalm 127:3
Thank you Lord for these gifts!
