add 2 cameras with clickin' mamas and littles-in-training...

Photobucket

throw in a pinch of baseball and lots of field to run the bases...

Photobucket

stir in post-dinner sticky, gooey, chocolate-y s'mores...

Photobucket

a dash of kite flying...

Photobucket

don't add any noise but the sound of peace, quiet, chatter and laughter...

Photobucket

and finally, toss in 2 mason jars, a dark sky and eager moms and girls chasing after the evening fireflies.

Photobucket
do you see those little lightbulbs in the fields?
