I feel like it should be called something other than “Photo Dump” but I guess “Photo Deposit” doesn’t really make sense either.
Here are the High’s and Low’s of the last couple weeks, photographically speaking.
So nice to have a home away from HOME! This time, we MADE ourselves take time to enjoy the lovely weather from that gazebo– so refreshing.
Speaking of refreshing, one morning Lance and I got up to go for a walk and my dad mentioned a park right around the corner– I could not believe my eyes when we saw it! It was very similar to a larger park in Wake Forest we used to love! We had a great little walk– aside from almost getting a parking ticket, (we were OUT in the country, so we parked on the side of the road early in the morning– unfortunately a police officer thought our car might be stolen (only in Jacksonville!) and was about to ticket us until another nice man said we had just gone for a walk! ) HA!
I always thought it was kind of a joke and had never been but APPARENTLY, my dad goes there all the time so Lance convinced me to go check it out and it was so nice! *I stand corrected*
Sorry for the grainy photo, but we had a little double date night with some dear family friends which involved amazing food, sleeping in a tad and then more amazing food– coupled with catching up and a lot of laughter. We were so renewed by our visit, but then we always are. We’re trying to nag them into coming up this way one weekend. (Hint Hint.)
The next night we had another dinner night with some very close friends, we happen to have kids just four months apart, (the mom and I have been best friends for life and we are only 4 month apart too!) Our second children are only 6 weeks apart– so we have perfectly planned play-dates. Don’t you love the fake smiles on these two? Buddies.
The next morning, I found myself sitting enjoying THIS while Reading the book below. My mom bought it for me. I think it’s quite applicable to our stage (or anyones!!) of life, don’t you? It’s really good. I LOVE Priscilla Shirer.
By that night, she was doing so much better and when I tucked her in her cozy little bed, (despite being a little tangled with cables and cords from an IV, and 3 monitor leads.) She smiled a little and said, “Mommy, I seepy.” Which of course, melted my heart completely because naturally she WOULD be very sleepy, but she had never said that before. It’s about a new word every day with this little one. Unfortunately, she also learned “OWIE.” in the hospital. Sad.
Home Sweet Home!
