kentucky, easter, and lots of animals.

sometimes things happen where it seems far greater to really see it oppose to just read about it. this past trip to kentucky was one of those times. i am so very thankful to have married into a family that loves me as if i have always been there and that i am apart of them. it is nice to be loved and cared for and if only for a few days...get a glimpse of what life would be like if we lived near family. i like it.

easter morning with the cousins.


 

not the least bit scared. she loved the bunny. she spent most of easter brunch hoping the bunny would return to the table. no such luck.



jack's birthday breakfast and trip to the zoo.






waited all day for the penguin exhibit. it was the very last thing we saw and we came upon this...



this was closest she got to seeing penguins at the zoo...lame wooden cut outs. 

















she asked if she could climb over the fence and live with the geese...but we decided that would be a no.




these kids love each other. it sure is something special.


it was a good good trip. thank you, thank you, thank you...for how you love me and how you love ava even more. but these two girls are real ready for daddy to come home and you better believe there will be balloons and cause for celebration.

  10. I stumbled upon your blog via a college young life leader from Knoxville. My son is a leader in Chattanooga… well, pretty soon it will be WAS a leader {he graduates in less than two weeks!} and we LOVE us some young life here in Knoxville. I went back and read from the beginning and wept. Not for your cancer {but how crummy!} but for how the Lord was glorified every step of the way. Your boldness, your courage, you perseverance… so inspiring! I feel like I know you {yeah, creepy, I know!!} and am so thankful that you have postings just like any mom now. Trips, and Easter and zoos and kids. You'll always be marked by cancer, but like anything that marks our lives it's like a badge of remembrance of how the Lord never leaves us or forsakes us. Thank you for so poignantly sharing your story and for willing to be open, honest and REAL. Press on!
