Weekend at a Cabin

A couple of weeks ago the kids and I escaped for three days with a friend and her daughter to her family cabin. It was a wonderful little getaway! Both David and Jaclyn had a great time. 
The first thing David said while we were there was "Wow, this is wonderful, we will have so much fun here, its perfect".

Before we arrived at the cabin we decided to go to the beach. As we were starting to get ourselves organized at the beach I asked the kids if they wanted to stay for a long time and play in the sand or just a few minutes? David looked up at me and said "Maybe just a few minutes, we want to get to the cabin". Naomi and I laughed, so we stayed for only a few minutes. However I was able to get enough pictures of us there so at least it seem like we were there for longer then 10 minutes. 

Before we got to the cabin, when we talked about the trip, Jaclyn and David weren't sure as to what exactly a cabin was (having never been to one) but they sure were excited to go. 
As you can imagine, having now experienced the fun of a cabin, they have already asked me more than a few times when we can go back up.

I have a 5 year old!!

Five years ago yesterday I gave birth to our son David.
On that hot day five years ago our lives forever were changed, with the birth of David.
Now both Chris and I new that our lives were about to change after all I was pregnant for 42 weeks. 
 Even though we thought we were ready to become parents, while as ready as we could be for new parents. Nothing could have prepared us for such an amazing adventure like being David's parents.

Some of the things that I have noticed about David over the last five years are that he is curious about everything, he cares about other peoples feeling, he wants to be the best big brother to Jaclyn. He is also loving, sensitive, funny and creative. He loves to use his imagination and often becomes Batman, Buzz Lightyear, Spiderman, Green lantern or any other superhero at anytime. He still likes to cuddle!
He also doesn't like surprises, he would much rather know what the surprise is and act surprised then actually be surprised. 

9 days old

5 years old

Happy Birthday David!! 
I am happy that God chose me to be your mom, I am blessed everyday by you and I look forward to many more birthdays with you and watching you learn more about the world around you and discovering life!
