I've been wanting to post this for several weeks now, but I felt like I needed to wait until the necessary relinquishments were made before I introduced this sweet bundle of joy, who joined our home through the miracle of adoption. Words and emotions can not express how unbelievably happy we are. We are so overwhelmed with gratitude and thanks to our Heavenly Father for blessing us with this sweet, sweet boy. Welcome to our home baby! We love you more than you'll ever know.
This past month, we were lucky enough to take an awesome vacation. Thanks to my parents, who provided/supplied the occasion, we were able to have one ginormous family reunion. The first week was spent in Florida, enjoying the awesome beaches, and, of course, Disney World! We even explored a state park, Lake Louisa, while basking in the lovely Florida humidity and heat. I welcomed every second of warmth though! The second week was spent on a 7-day cruise, traveling to Nassau, St. Thomas and St. Maarten. We had the best time ever! Especially after enduring one of the worst winters in Michigan...ugh! I was looking forward to some fun in the sun...and we did have a lot of fun! Thanks mom and dad. We love you!!!!!!!!!
These pictures are not in any particular order...just some of my favorites, capturing a bit of everything.
Enjoying a day at Daytona Beach, where the sand was white and so soft, and the water was warm enough to swim in! (Still a little cold though.)
The next bunch of pictures are from Nassau. . .
I'm pointing to (trying to show Max) the Pirate Museum in the background, however, it appears that I'm pointing to the man in the center. Or shall I say, tourist with about 100 fashion faux pas. He looks a little upset. But I would be too if I were wearing socks with my sandals :)
