Summer Vacation Fun!

At long last I have added some pictures from our vacation. I meant to do this right after we got home, but I just haven't wanted to sit in front of the computer. I had that bug to get reorganized after our trip. I also wanted to do make sure I have my priorities striaght. Sometimes I spend just a wee bit to much time on the computer. Summer is fleeting and the boys are growing up fast. Seeing so much sickness and death lately has really made me want to cherish family time all that much more. Life is scary sometimes. I don't want to have regrets about missing out on my boys childhood. The time just goes by in what feels like the blink of an eye. I have some friends that really need prayers. So, if you are a regular on my blog and you want to add these dear peeps to your list, I will be forever greatful. The Stinziano family are friends from the college days. They were college sweet hearts married for about fourteen years if memory serves correctly. She lost her battle to cancer on July 5. They have four young children. Pray for Jordan and the kids as they go through this season of grief. He is also church planter/pastor. Please also Pray for the Lewis Family. She is a dear friend from the Church I grew up at in FL. She has been battling cancer for several years now. She also has a big family. We are praying that God will heal her and deliver her from this illness.
So our vacation was really a nice time away visiting the in-laws in NY. Watching fireworks with the temps in the mid to upper 50's was so SWEET!! The weather was awesome. I have to say that New York summers are tough to beat!! And the boys did amazing with the fourteen hour drive to and from! That in it of it self is truly a blessing. Our biggest trial was Wesley's fear of public bathrooms. He does NOT like the loud sound public toilets flushing. And the hand dryers? Forget about's drip dry for this kid!! So needless to say we made some pitstops in the middle of the boondocks to change some nasty diapers. Potty training...well....we're halfway there.....we'll get there someday!! Thank goodness for pullups!! Our time away was truly a blessing and the kids had so much fun with their grandparents and auntie!! I'll post more pics later. I have a bunch!! :) Peace Y'all!! :)
