Beautiful Day At The Park

Today was beautiful outside. 
We decided it was the kind of day to go out and smell the flowers and play at the park.

Addison received a package in the mail...Yes, after spending the night with Tyler (her birth sibling), they had to mail her ipod cord back to her.  I swear, those girls ALWAYS leave something when they spend the night at each other's houses.  Levi was ready to ride his bike to the park.  He dressed himself I might add... and was set to go with his make shift sword in hand. LoL

Addison and her friend Jaina
Bob loves the kids and he loves going to the park.  He actually broke his neck a few years back when the kids tied him to a tree and he couldn't get to them when they were playing.  Just look at his concerned face....all of those Beagle/Sharpe wrinkles. hahaha 

Levi made a new little friend too.

Can't go to the park and not roll down the hill a few times :))

Levi realized I was down the hill walking Bob and decided to run...I mean, roll down to me....

What a champ!
But as fun as that was... He never stops and was off to catch up with his sister.
We had a great time and I guess the weather is supposed to be beautiful all week so hopefully we will get to spend lots more time outside.

God is Good!

Here is a picture of Levi and I at the doctor's office today.

On the way to the doctor's this morning, I was praying for the Lord to give me wisdom and the right words to talk with my doctor about our continued desire for an embryo adoption. Don't know why I was so nervous, but I was.
Then....As the door opened,
I was surprised to see one of my best friends in high school was my student nurse. The moment she hugged me, everything came spilling out... Along with a bunch of tears. LOL

I was able to open up and really talk about everything and how important it is for me to be in the best possible shape diabetically and have a current uterine scan on file. She was great and ordered a full blood work-up and scheduled the next uterine scan and follow up appointment, to document the progress. She was so supportive and encouraging. The Lord could not have answered my prayers more preciously than to send me "Trish" today.

God, You are sooooo incredibly good! Thank you for walking me through this appointment! It was awesome to feel You there with me.

Pizza, Parade, and a Wonderful Day With My Kido's

For St. Patricks Day, Michelle (Bailey's birth mom and Kathryn her 1/2 birth sibling) joined the kids and I for a day of fun. Aaron, Bailey's friend came along too.

Here is a shot with me and the kids. Getting them all to smile is something else. LOL

Before the parade started we went to a little pizza shop called Rudy's for lunch.

Levi was telling me that he could see two fish in the fish pond. I thought it was so cute that I took several pictures of him.

The pizza was awesome! Yummy veggies with a wheat crust.

This was Aaron's pizza when he was done. LOL

As you can see, Michelle and I had no problem eating all of ours. Hahaha

Addison being a goof and missing her mouth with the breath spray. That's my girl!

After lunch and after I spend a good 20 minutes drying my son's jacket from when he decided it was a good idea to try and catch the fish in the fish pond (thank goodness for the hand dryers in the bathroom),... we still had to wait a good 30 minutes for the parade to start. Levi brought his own drum so time went a bit faster for him.

He was such a happy boy when he heard the music and saw the parade coming.

After the parade, we all went to the Goodwill and had fun shopping. Yes, I will admit that I'm always on the hunt for a second hand deal whether it's from a discount store, garage sale or the local Goodwill. Aaron was a trooper and we all had a good laugh when we found some funky big glasses.

And to top off the fun day we all went back to the house and had a girl + Aaron hair party. I told Aaron that he will make is wife a very happy woman, if he's willing to do her hair for her. It is the test of knowing if you've married your best friend or not. He thought it sounded fun and to be honest, he was pretty good at it too.

Here the girls are all letting the goop sit on their hair and process.

Wish I had the after pictures to show you but after they finished their hair, everyone scattered and went their own way. Everyone's hair turned out beautiful and even Michelle and I got ours done. Aaron texted Bailey and said he had a blast so I guess we didn't scare him off with too much girly stuff.
He was a trooper.
All in all, it was a great day and we enjoyed our time together. So far spring break has been fun and it's got me looking forward to summer when the kids are home more often.
