Random Picture Friday

Time has gotten away from me and I haven't kept up with this blogging thing.  Here are some pictures from before Christmas and a few recent ones.  Hope you all have a blessed weekend...I am heading to have some girl time with a few dear friends from high school.  I. Cannot. Wait.

Dates with this guy are never dull.

Play-dough and raspberries...what else could you want?

He like the red car.

Ugly sweater party with our Journey Group...love these people!

Before Christmas fun at the library

Luke was slightly obsessed with R2D2

My two main men.

We loved visiting Lauritzen Gardens this Christmas season.

This kid loves his books. 

Mom life

Lily was helping us pack for vacation.

More library fun

This girl oozes joy.

Luke is a fan of his name.

Just a little everyday.

Our little hipster

Muffin man


We love the library.

One of Kevin and I's favorite spot, M's Pub, had a fire the day we returned from vacation.  We are pretty devastated  about the whole thing and are praying they are able to rebuild.  This is the spot we visit every Christmas and also did our last date there before both our babes were born.  We are going to miss it and the people so much.

Girl's Day in the Old Market with my mom and sister.  Usually we would go to M's, but we visited Le Bouillon instead.  

The car thermometer doesn't lie.  Yikes!  This was on the way to church on Sunday morning.

She loves her dolly.

We had some snow this week on the Trail and, despite the cold, we ventured out a couple times.

I realized I don't have many pictures of bath time...Lily's favorite time of the day.  This girl cracks me up.

You should have seen the outtakes.  

 This kid has my heart.

What else are we going to do when it's cold?


Grand Cayman

Last week at this time we were in the warm Caribbean sun on Grand Cayman Island.  Words nor pictures will do it justice, but I will try.  

We met Kevin's family down there and had a wonderful time lounging by the pool, exploring the island, and building sand castles on the beach.  Luke LOVED the beach and the pool and I'm surprised we were able to talk him into coming home with us.  All of us but Lily and Hillary came down with some kind of bug while we were there, but that didn't keep us from having fun.  It was a memorable trip with family and I'm so glad we were able to experience it together.  

 We made it to the airport on time.  Kevin is all smiles at 5:00 in the morning.  The kids did pretty awesome on the flights.


Lily's first glimpse.  She was up a bit early on our first morning there and had some talks with the rooster and chickens that wandered the property.

First morning exploring the beach, Luke was so excited.

The kiddos (I mean Papa and Gaga) built many sandcastles.

It was so fun to watch Luke and Katie together.

Driving on the wrong side.

We went to the local fish market and picked up some fresh fish.  It was cool, but really really gross.

We went back to the condo and Kevin made it right up.  It was so yummy!

This girl loved the patio.

Papa Gary put Baby David to sleep like this...what a pro.

Our first sunset dinner.

Goodness, I love this kid.

We explored the island a little and were able to check out some sea turtles.

Best friends??!!

These two were too cute.

Lily was pretty impressed with her first taste of whipped cream.

Luke liked being able to walk around in the kiddie pool.

Lily was a fan as well.  She thought she could walk...

Another sunset dinner.  This place was breathtaking.

Diane and I celebrated our birthdays together.  Kevin made us all a yummy dinner...while he was sick.  He was a trooper!

Starfish Beach was so fun.  Luke really loved it.

David is such a smiley baby.

Oblivious to the pelican behind him.

Six days into our trip and Lily finally didn't scream when we put her feet in the sand.

Date night for Kevin and I.

Friday morning I woke up sick and Luke fell asleep randomly in my arms mid morning.  He NEVER does that.

Why wouldn't we match?

These kids had a great last night together.  They are party animals.

These are the last shots with my DSLR camera.  I lost it on our trip back and it has yet to be found.  I am so sad about this and am praying someone turns it in soon!

Last morning on the beach.  Lily liked her smoothie.

Filling jars to take some sand back to Iowa.

These two are amazing grandparents.  We are so blessed to have them!

This was good.

This was better.
