Our Savior's love, shines like the sun with perfect light. As from above, it breaks through clouds of strife.

Baby S isn't a baby anymore :(

We celebrated her 3rd birthday with a family "Pinky Pie Party"  (My Little Pony).  The girls decorated while she took a nap.  When she came downstairs she was so thrilled... she gasped and put her hands up to her cheeks and said "Oh my goodness!"  She is so easy to please.  

Something we love about S:

At the dinner table we take turns saying one "thought" (scripture) each night.  S always says, "Love one another as I have loved..." and then she pulls back her finger and looks around the table and leaves us in suspense as she chooses who she loves the best that night and points to them "YOU!"  Probably not a correct interpretation of that scripture, but it is so sweet and whoever gets pointed at feels great.

NC trip/50th anniversary celebration

We were able to go back to NC to visit friends and family.  We flew into DC so that Greg could visit some suppliers.  Greg's cousin showed us around the Lincoln and Jefferson Memorial.  On our way out of town the girls and I visited the museum of Natural History.  



Then we drove to the farm to visit Gigi and Poppi and Aunt Boog plus cousins.  Then we went out to the coast to spend some time at our favorite beach.  

S and cousin A

The house we stayed in had a detached deck (360 degree views).  We saw some crazy looking storms roll in almost every evening.  Luckily, the daytime weather was sunny and hot hot hot (we aren't accustomed to the heat anymore!)

Finally, we met up at Lake Gaston with 4 of my siblings and their families to celebrate the 50th anniversary of these two lovely people.  

the whole crew

The cousins had a blast together
