So, this is a difficult posting for me to do. But I want to do it anyway. Aaron Jr and I went to Washington state for Easter weekend. We went up to visit Ben. He is someone that I have gone out with and he has become a really good friend. Anyhow, Aaron Jr and I went up to visit him and to spend some time up where he is from. We spent Saturday decorating eggs, and playing around on their farm. We had a blast. It was so much fun.
I have never discussed dating on my blog before. I have not felt very comfortable with discussing this subject on here and it has been difficult for me to imagine sharing that part of my life on my blog. So far, I have not shared it on here. But after this past weekend, I decided that I wanted to post photos from our weekend and share that I have taken the big step into the world of dating again.
I admit, I struggled with my feelings about dating. It has been difficult for me to let my heart be vulnerable in that way. But opening my heart is a necessary thing to do if I am going to allow myself to be open to this type of happiness in my future... and I do want that happiness.
The reason I am choosing to share this now... is because Ben is a great guy and the type of guy that I want to be with... someday... whoever and wherever that guy may be.
So, here goes...
Ben helped Aaron collect eggs from the hens. Aaron had a blast being on their farm and seeing the animals.
For the Easter egg hunt, Ben and his mom taped money to two of the chickens' feet so the kids could chase them and retrieve the money.
Ben also did this with two of the baby potbelly pigs. It was so funny.

I had to include this photo. Aaron Jr is always so quick to go from crying... to smiling when I ask him to... even for a photo. I can learn a lot from this little boy of mine. It is not quite so easy for me to go from crying to smiling... but I will work on that.
Thanks to Ben and his family for the fun weekend. We had a blast.
