Belle Isle Memory of a Weeping Willow and Happy Kids

It's a simple summer mental snapshot this mom will treasure: Three sweet daughters wrapped up in a lovely tree in the heart of this Detroit park

Belle Isle Memory of a Weeping Willow and Happy Kids

My favorite summer memory would be going to Belle Isle with my hubby, Sean, and my amazing daughters Melody, Savannah and Daisy. Just admiring the beautiful, whimsical weeping willow – which my daughters seemed "in awe" over. They ran underneath it – and with its long, green strands, it actually looked as though it was hugging them back!

I just looked at the tree and my daughters and felt a "warm feeling" inside my body, as though to relish that feeling forever and ever – because it will hopefully stay in my memories forever.

Just being with my kids and husband on a warm, sunny day was one of my best summer memories.
