Last night I thoughts we were a sneakin to the river to finally see the monster that Maggie kept telling me about.  Wesa waited and waited for everyones to go to sleep but our Mom just was sitting in her chair..quiet.  Finally when it was really dark and I foughts hers was going to bed she surprized us all by telling us to get our coats on we were going for a walk.

My first thought was OH NO hers really gonna give me to the monster but then I realized that she never evers would do that.  So we all put our coats on, and Mom put Stellie in the stroller.  It was pretty cold out and really dark.

We walked down to the park and Mom then just sat down on one of the benches.  She was hoping we would see something like this....

but since we live in Iowa instead of Alaska that wasn't gonna happen.  Instead we saw something like this instead.

Which is just as beautiful.  Mom told us sometimes the quiet holds words that our hearts just can't say right now.  And we all need a little quiet sometimes.
We will miss you little buddy, our hearts are with your momma and sister.
