Visitors

“It’s strange indeed how memories can lie dormant in a man’s mind for so many years. Yet those memories can be awakened and brought forth fresh and new, just by something you’ve seen, or something you’ve heard, or the sight of an old familiar face.”

~ Wilson Rawls, Where the Red Fern Grows

Jackie, Bryan, Owen and Addy came for a visit and we managed to cram a lot of fun into a short period of time.  It was a much needed dose of family and we are super grateful for their visit.

Like with any enjoyable time spent over a long weekend, Mondays can be quite the downer but Soren’s birthday brought brightness to an otherwise bleak day.  Cliche moment…I can’t believe he is 5 years old.

He requested balloons, a homemade strawberry cake, steak, french fries and a scavenger hunt for presents.

In all the hullabaloo, Ellinor turned 11 months.

She has four chompers, amazing flow and is still the sweetest bee ever.  Some of her fave activities include emptying the dishwasher as Parker loads it, sitting in the dishwasher, hanging on the fridge, following mom around and playing in the dog bed. We adore her.
