I'm Gonna Miss THIS Moment! Week 1

Actually, it's You're Gonna Miss This Moment, but I'm speaking for myself.  ;-)

This summer I got to go back to my home state and visit the fam. One of the days we all got together for a picnic! The picture above is of all but two of my Grammy and Grandpa's grandchildren/great grandchildren.  (Well, I guess we're missing one great grandchild, but he doesn't really show up as more than a belly bump in most pictures yet.) 

I love all of my cousin's, from the one who just turned 18 and graduated (not pictured) to the littlest who is my own son's age.  :-)  I have had so much fun watching all of them come into the world and grow and grow.  I know that someday all of us will be grown up and I may not see them or get to play with them anymore.  I hope we always stay in touch though.  They are beautiful little spirits with great families, and all together we're a great family!

I will miss moments like this summer's picnic.

To share moments you know you'll be missing someday, but of course are so grateful for now, while they are happening, go over to Pam's blog and let the rest of us know what's on your mind and heart.

As for my friends and fam who don't use blogger, go ahead and e-mail me.  I love a good reminiscent moment or story!  ;-)

What a great picture and memory. I love it too when our family gets together with all the cousins and grandparents. So nice to all be in one place at the same time. Great moment. One I will miss too.

That is a terrific picture! And reminds me of how getting together with family is one of my favorite memories.

Oh, that was very sweet!! I grew up w/ my cousins, but we lost touch after my parents got divorced. My kids are very close to their cousins, and I pray it stays that way!!

Cute picture!!
