gravitational pull

Emma, our oldest, is spending a few days in Michigan with her grandparents and I am missing her somethin’ fierce! The child who talks more than the rest of us combined, who often asks me the same question ten times daily, who refuses to “remember” how to keep her bedroom tidy…that sweet, lively, at-times exhausting child makes my world go ’round and when she’s gone the whole house is just off. Emma has a pull that way, draws people in, loves them well and leaves them laughing more times than not.

Before dropping her off at the sugar factory her grandparents’, Rob and I were able to spend a day with Em at our favorite amusement park, Cedar Point. Having grown over six inches (!!!) since last summer, she was tall enough to ride some of the “big” roller coasters. We sincerely had one the funnest days I can recall, and of course caught some bits on video including her maiden “big” roller coaster voyage. My missing her could be a factor here, but I have watched this probably twenty times and laughed until I cried every time. For all those joyous people in our lives who seem to emit an actual gravitational pull of fun, cheers to you!

Phil Thornton haha! That’s great, love how she has a moment of “am I scared right now?” but then it turns to laughter. :)

Jen King-Campbell I LOVE that you all captured this on video! The looks on her face throughout the ride explain it all. “This is great…whoa, maybe not…well maybe it is great!” SO CUTE!
