"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

Friday night started our one week of vacation with Blake! He has not had a week off for vacation in over a year, so we are beyond thrilled to have him HOME!!!

When you rarely get time like this, and you're saving up for an adoption, you really don't wanna do much else but just hang around together and find free stuff to do!

So here's what's been keeping us busy....

Sunday morning we went to the Arts Festival. They had free kids activities and the boys LOVED it! Sadie trying to work her sock puppet. Such a cool craft for the kids!
The boys showing off their awesome tattoos.
The boys first attempt to camp out in the tent. They lasted until 10:30 before needing to come inside! Below is just before they kicked me out....no girls aloud!

Lots of swimming at the neighborhood pool! We are so thankful it's open because it's SO HOT!!!

At the Jazz Festival enjoying a lemonade.

Above and below are from the Jazz festival. It was so much fun to let the kids just dance!

For Memorial Day we enjoyed the pool and then met Gigi and Papa Joe for dinner at Lake Hefner. What great pics we got! Thanks guys!
Okay...I realize they are our kids so we are biased...but couldn't they be little models. Holy cow!!! I will have to post the rest later!!! Oh mercy...I love family pictures and can't help but feel abundantly blessed!
A pic with Gigi and Papa Joe! I love it! What a wonderful night. Below: I am addicted to craigslist and found this hutch for $60. I used money from a Mother's Day gift to get it and then painted it and changed the knobs. I LOVE it and can't quite figure out where I need it most. But so glad I snagged it!!

"Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus." 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 (NIV)
