"So promise me you'll never forget...that you aren't an accident or an incident...you are a gift to the world, a divine work of art, signed by God. You were deliberately planned, specifically gifted, and lovingly positioned on this earth...Flooded by emotion, overcome by pride, the Starmaker turns to us, one by one, and says, 'You are my child. I love you dearly.'" Max Lucado, God Thinks You're Wonderful

Swing set!

We finally got around to taking down the old swing set that desperately needed to be replaced. The plan was to get Owen a new one for his birthday!

You can see that the boys were great help!

So, our parents got Owen this cool new swing set for his birthday. It finally stopped raining long enough to get it put together.

It took about 3 hours for us to get it together.

The boys were so patient playing outside while we fussed around with the parts. We are both hilarious to watch when it comes to stuff like this. We like to look at the pictures and not really read instructions...so we had to take some things apart and stop and read the directions.

I told Blake I hoped he was better about knowing his "parts" in surgery.

He didn't think I was funny!

You can see that Cooper didn't really like the see-saw, but Owen sure did!

Thank you Noonie, Papa Max, Gigi and Papa Joe. The boys love it and Blake and I thank you for hours of entertainment OUTSIDE!
