Under the plan of heaven, the husband and the wife walk side by side as companions, neither one ahead of the other, but a daughter of God and a son of God walking side by side.

Family Reunion Part 3

Okay, so here's yet another post with pictures from the reunion. Not sure how to do one of those album things. I got to call my cousin Jessica and ask her. Sorry the pictures are all of my kids. If you want any other photos, just let me know and I will burn you a CD. We had such a wonderful time. Can't wait until next year. This is the last post about the reunion, but I do have some fun pictures of our adventures on our way home. I'll post that when I get a second.

Emerson helping with the service project - school supplies for some poor school kids in Africa, I think. We told him that they were for kids who don't have mommy's to buy this stuff for them. His reply "Well, we should make me one, because my mom won't buy this stuff for me." Silly kid!

Emerson actually did really well with the rock climbing!

My Steelers cheerleader and Grandma

Steelers family - everyone dressed in Steelers clothes on the same day. It was really fun!

Mommy/Daughter Date

For my Mommy/Daughter date with Capri, we went to a tea party at the church. It was really fun and she was totally into it. She LOVED all the little cakes and pink decorations. She kept making everyone at our table laugh because she was so excited about it that she kept literally squealing in delight! It was so much fun. We decorated flip flops and made little bows for our hair. We also learned how to make big floppy sun hats out of wrapping paper. They turned out really cute. She is such a girly girl and is the sweetest thing. I am so lucky to have such a wonderful daughter who makes me smile every day. How did I get such wonderful kids?

Mommy/Son Date

On Tuesday I took Emerson on a Mommy/Son date. We went to the Rainforest Cafe for desert. Emerson loves it there and we had a wonderful time together. He is so funny and talked the whole time. He really appreciated the one on one time. I let him pick out two little animals from the gift shop and he picked out 2 little bats that he takes everywhere. He's quite obsessed with bats lately. It's cute. I love this little guy and am so sad that he goes to school next week. He will be starting preschool and will be gone 3 mornings a week. I'll miss him, but know he will have a wonderful time meeting new friends. I am so lucky to be his mom.
