Can I just stop time?

Today was such a beautiful day.  Really just teasing us probably, but still we made the most of a 75 degree day in April!! We didn't do anything crazy, but Justin has been gone a ton the past couple months, so I have been so stressed out, and pretty much have been a single mom.  (I have to say, I have thought so much about moms who don't have a spouse for one reason or another, and I literally don't know how they do it.) Anyway, we spent 3/4s of the day all together, and we went for a jog with the girls, and also a bike ride as a family, and just played outside.  It was ordinary, and wonderful. 

I seriously wish my girls would stop growing up.  Time is just flying.  Most days I really try to make the most of this precious time with my kids.  Lexi can drive anyone crazy with all they whys, hows, whos, and whens, but on the other hand, she is learning so much, and she is such a sweetheart.  Roz loves to say mom mom mom dad dad dad over and over again, when she is trying to get our attention, but I can't get enough of that sweet little voice.  I truly understand why our Heavenly Father's plan is to have a family.  What the heck would the point of life be without our families? There is NOTHING that brings more joy.
