From DadNCharge: Spending a week with my parents whom we only see maybe 3 times a year in person because they live in Chicago. We attended a wedding together. We hiked a canyon together, had s'mores, and have spent the time enjoying each other's company.

Fridays on Raising Wild Things are Shiny, Happy, Sparkly, Feel-Good Fridays! Since parenting can sometimes suck the  life out of me, I wanted to do these posts as reminders of the good, the great things that happened during the week amid all the crazy, exhausting, sometimes frustrating, sometimes maddening, sometimes head-exploding moments that seem to linger in my memory and can put me in a mommy funk. What makes you happy? Please share!

I'm a mamma to four little wild things and can't imagine life any other way. (Well, most days.)
