It has been a long time since I've blogged that I actually forgot how to load an image...well I am back and ready to blog again :) Here is all of us visiting with my family in Tucson. We love it here so much and look forward to Tucson every Thanksgiving. We were all in vacation mode...eating, sleeping, hanging out and going on quite a few merry go rounds and trains. We loved it and I love these times when we can all be together :)
Ice cream and Daddy...what could be better?
Not to happy about the train ride
Micah's favorite boys!!!
Abby-girl cuddling with Cozy Casey!
The Air Museum
Pulled an all-nighter on the way out, watching his favorite movies...definitely a night owl like his daddy.
On Friday our church had an all day beach day. Micah had so much fun playing in the sand and this little kitty pool I was shocked he went in since he hates cold water....I was so proud of him!
Later in the day it was awesome because we had baptisms as well, and Shane had the privledge of baptizing a couple of his students right there in the ocean. It was such a great day with the fam and church body. And yes Abby is still in my belly. She will be coming on Wednesday if not, then sooner :)
These girls are so dear to me and have been such a huge blessing in my life. They came over the other night and surprised me with some beautiful yellow roses....that are still making me smile every time I look at them. It was such a joy hanging out with them and just being in there presence...they make me laugh so much. I miss our Saturday mornings together, but I know that even though I am unable to meet up with them like we used to, they will always have someone praying for them. I love you girls and thank the Lord so much for bringing each of you into my life.
This weekend Shane and I had a chance to get away before our new little arrival. Friday evening we went to Beachcombers Cafe at Crystal cove for dinner, then drove to a condo in Oceanside that we were staying at for the weekend. I woke up early and spent some time on the beach...the waves were perfect, next time we are bringing the boards :) Then once my hubby was up we headed over to Ruby's on the pier for breakfast. We just relaxed on the beach and hung out by the pool for the day. That evening our friends Shaina and Jason arrived and we went to the Carlsbad outlets then to Islands for dinner. We went back to the condo for some games and junk food. We left Sunday morning and went to one of my favorite places to eat "The Corner Bakery" we don't have one out in Temecula so whenever I am in the OC I love to go there :) It was a great ending to our weekend...thank you Lord for an awesome weekend with just my hubby!
For Mother's day we went out to visit my mom, sister and aunt, and had a BBQ. The minute I got there Micah was out of my site off playing with his cousins. I didn't see too much of him during our visit. It was nice though because I got to enjoy some time with my sister, mom and aunt :)
In the morning there was a little surprise Shane and Micah had left for me. Cards are a big deal to me and I got one from each of my boys :) I also got a gift card to massage envy which I cannot wait to use. And from my little man I got his handprint in this little mold with hearts around it...yes it made me cry. Thank you honey for such a great Mother's Day!!!
Micah, I can't believe you are 2 years old today...it feels like not to long ago I was holding you as a tiny little baby. I love watching you grow daily and seeing the kind of person you are becoming. Already I notice your sensitive spirit and the joy you have for life. I love how passionate you are about your cars and trains...it is so cute seeing your face light up when you see cars or watch choo-choo videos. I also like hearing the words you are beginning to say...my favorite is "Applesauce" :) You are a joy to daddy and I, and we praise God for giving you to us. We love you so much!!! Happy Birthday Micah!!!
God did great things up at our annual Womens Retreat last weekend. It was awesome to see the unity and love our group had. I was also blessed to be apart of the worship team which is a pic of us all here. I was a little nervous not having had picked up the guitar in a couple of years, but I prayed and God helped me with much practice to play again...and it was a blast! Thank you Lord for this awesome weekend and for working in my heart and in so many others. You are a Great God!!!!
