Family Picnic Project, no. 1

Processed with VSCOcam with g3 preset

John had the best idea the other day.  Since he’s so busy with school and research and hardly ever gets to see the boys with his long hours, he suggested we start meeting on campus for a weekly family picnic to sort of break up the week and share some good quality time with the babies and each other.  The weather here is always perfect and we are usually never short on lunch foods, plus Stanford Campus could not be more amazing, so it seemed like an easy and worth while idea to us (Plus, we were nervous Charlie would start thinking Dad’s name was “bye bye”…)!  Today we met for our first weekly picnic and it was a breath of fresh air!  I have been having a hard time physically and emotionally with this pregnancy and getting ready and getting out today and being all together with the sunshine and yummy food was simply medicine for me.  The boys absolutely loved seeing Dad and playing frisbee and rolling down the hill with him and exploring his corner of campus.  He is so much more fun then I am, hahaha.  Poor babies, having to be stuck with me all day every day!

We had to shave Charlie’s head so he’d stop pulling out his hair!  I think it looks so insanely adorable, actually.

Charlie already shows signs of feeling things very deeply.  He’s so full of life and love and has connected his heart to each of ours.  So whenever any of us is sad or down, Charlie comes up to us and cries while trying to help us feel better. And of course it works! He is our little angel on earth, we all think so!

James said it was too sunny and he needed some sunglasses.  Mine were the only ones we had on hand and I think he looks so smart.

Never want to take these humans for granted.
