"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

He's back!

This last weekend we got Blake back and it's been oh-so nice!

We are loving every minute of it, but I am finding that with having him here more, I am getting less done because I just want to sit and be with him!

Today, we were surprised because Blake didn't have to be in until the AFTERNOON! The boys were beyond thrilled that he was here when they woke up in the morning. I love seeing how much our kids love their daddy.

So today, Blake took us to the zoo. It's amazing to me how much more fun the zoo becomes to a mommy when she has her honey there! I tell you what, it was a blast. I usually love the zoo just because we are outside not fighting over toys and such. But today was different and special and I am sure it's because it followed a hectic daddy-less 10 weeks.

So, I hope you enjoy the pictures. We sure are loving having Blake home more! What a blessing he is to all of us and honestly, it's a blessing to have to "give him up" for 10 weeks because it makes every moment with him that much sweeter.

Nothing too thrilling here, just Sadie in an adorable outfit! She loved checking out the waterfall.

This one cracks me up because I was so excited to get all 3 of them in a picture that I didn't even notice the paci in Sadie's neck until 5 pictures were taken!

The men in my life! They were so amazed at the train ride. We have never taken the train at the zoo, so it was such a wonderful treat!
