We went to the zoo on 4th of July and had a blast! They just opened the Dino exhibit a few days before. I highly recommend it if you have any dinosaur loving kids like Lucas! Just a little something to add to the zoo of animals.

Happy first birthday, Gracelyn! I cannot believe she is one! We had a beautiful day celebrating her. Being a second child I feel like she never gets individual attention she deserves...and with a very active, loud brother, she has to take a back seat to everything. How special to be able to celebrate HER all day long. We started the morning with balloons in her crib and singing Happy birthday when she first woke up, which she loved. (Lucas loved it just as much. ;-) We had a birthday party for her with all our friends and my parents even came! Half way through the party I opened the door to our final guests...my Aunt Marilyn and Uncle Dennis. They flew in from Illinois to surprise us, and did they ever! Tears were flowing from excitement and surprise!
But the best part of her special day was that she started CRAWLING! It was almost 6 months to the day that we were told she may never walk or sit up so each milestone is just so emotional! There's no stopping this little girl! SUCH a fun day celebrating our Gracelyn Rose. Thank you so much to everyone who showered her with love yesterday!

Cheers to my grandma on her birthday. I miss her so, so much. Thankful that I have her glasses to have a glass of wine in for special occasions like tonight. Happy birthday, Grandma! Hope you're dancing and having your own glass of wine or more with Grandpa!

It's a beautiful Easter Sunday here in Colorado. Our family had a really nice Easter weekend! We went to church last night which is SO weird. Easter Sunday has now become Easter Saturday. He is risen, he is risen indeed...but not really. Not until tomorrow. Weird. But it worked really well for us for a number of reasons.
We spent the morning looking for Easter eggs and then playing with our toys in our Easter basket. This was the first year we held an Easter egg hunt in our yard and Lucas had SO MUCH FUN! After taking our tradition family picture in the yard we went to breakfast at one of our favorite breakfast spots. Both kids took a nap today. Lucas gave up naps a couple months ago but still does quiet time...which is not even kinda quiet but I love that he plays in his room for almost an hour each day and today apparently that turned into a nap! I mean BOTH kids took a nap today, AT THE SAME TIME. After nap we went to the park. It was fun seeing so many family's there, grown adults in the field throwing Frisbees and flying kites. Just some solid family time. We had a nice dinner together and our typical Sunday Night Movie night in our living room. I just wish these days would go so much slower! Beautiful Easter and so much to be thankful for!
Thank you Jesus for dying for my sins!
Luke 24:6-7 He is not here; he is risen! Remember how he told you, while he was still with you in Galilee: 'The Son of Man must be delivered over the hands of the sinners, be crucified and on the third day be raised again.'
