happy birthday brendan!

Our little boy just turned 8! I guess he's not so little anymore. We are so thankful for our son. We love you, Brendan!

This was actually at Sean's party, but she's just so stinkin' cute :)

We went to Andretti Thrill Park again at Brendan's request. Such a good time. And even though Donathan says he let me win, I know I really did :)

Doesn't he look so old?

easter weekend

Wow, what a crazy week! Most of our time revolved around the Good Friday/Easter Sunday in the Park. We were so blessed; everything turned out so wonderful. Here's a few pics from all that went on...

Set up on Thursday at Riverside Park

On Good Friday, after the noon Communion service, the kids stayed with Daddy before the church barbeque that evening and played before sound checks started.

Easter Sunday morning

We finished cleaning up at 4:00 and headed over to Grandma and Grandpa's for dinner and the easter egg hunt.

Kylie was more interested in the grass in her easter basket than her gift!
