today i love...

today i love that excited moment when we can answer "yes" to their "are we there yet?"
usually, for our dawdley family, it's in the middle of the night.

we unbuckle car-seat straps and the babies burst forth from the car like flint-sparks.

the strained nerves from the long drive are instantly soothed.

i find it very funny that the drive is so long and the excited moment is so fleeting. even funnier is the fact that we keep taking trips, forgetting the intensity of the labor involved and focusing on the memory of the fireside laughter. the kids faces as we tell late-night goblin stories. the combination warm sleeping bags and cold, fresh breaths of air.
