momitforward In celebration of #TBT and hard to tell, but this is one of my fave bump pics. I'm hugging Chase (2 1/2) right before going into labor and delivery to have Connor. Super preggers in this pic. Hard to believe he was ever that little.

momitforward I'm pretty sure this will forever be my fave #Spring picture--where Troy and I are tandem bike riding through tulip fields in Holland. It was like God took a giant paintbrush and made a beautiful masterpiece in the Dutch countryside. So awesome! #MomItForward 6d

momitforward To celebrate #StPatricksDay week, I'm posting a pic every day from my trip to #Ireland, starting with this one where I was dying to go in the ocean and subsequently filled my wellies full of water when a wave crashed near me. To say I was freezing is an understatement. It was January. But I loved every second of it! #WowMoments 1w
  •   twiniversity It's such a beautiful country. The hubby and I visited the year before we got pregnant with the twins. We drove from one side of the country to the other. Stunning. What a memorable experience. #luckyus 1w
  •   caritomson Yes!!! That was a cold day! That wave came back way too quick. At least we all had wet socks together. 1w
  •   momitforward @caritomson It's so not easy to run in water. Couple that by trying to run in the wind and water with wellies full of water? Not a chance of escaping that wave. And remember how our socks wouldn't dry all day? Glad we weren't knocked over by the waves. Can you imagine the frost bite? 1w

momitforward My #family gathered at the cemetery where my little brother is buried yesterday, took turns sharing fun and meaningful memories about him, let off these beautiful balloons, and went back to my parent's house and ate Navajo Tacos and talked until 10:30. He would be pleased!!! 2mon

  •   ltross Oh wow. I'm a fairly new follower so I don't know the story behind this. But my brother has recently been diagnosed with schizo-affective disorder. And after a decades long battle with addiction, we are discovering the mental health world is HARD. I would really love to hear more about your story sometime. 2mon
