Quick Trip To San Antonio

John had a quick business trip to San Antonio. Since the drive was over five hours each way, we both thought it could be nice if I joined him.  As soon as we mentioned it to Julia and Annalyn, they were very encouraging telling us to go enjoy a mini-getaway.  The San Antonio Riverwalk was beautiful!

We had brunch at a place called Schilo's Deli before heading back home.  They make homemade root beer and boy was it delicious!
Our visit was very short, but we definitely had a wonderful time.  We are already thinking about bringing the kids!

Rest In Peace Sandy

Sandy, I cannot adequately express the blessing you were in our lives.  You loved my family in a beautiful way... something we will never forget.  We are grieving the hole that is left here on earth now that you are gone, but are rejoicing that you are in heaven suffering no more.
Thank you for your beautiful heart.

A Great Reminder

Cross of our Lord Jesus Christ

On our way out to California a little over two weeks ago, we stopped in Groom, Texas to see the Cross of our Lord Jesus Christ.
It was very hot and windy so we did not stay long.

Still, it was a nice stop.
This picture of Natalie and William shows just how close they are.  Natalie adores her big brother.
A big shout out to my Aunt Tanya who opened up her home to all of us for nearly two weeks.  
Thank you!


Nothing helps to cool off like a good ol' popsicle.

Sandy and Gail

Good friends who also happen to be amazing, mentoring, loving, caring women of God do not come along everyday.  Our family has been incredibly blessed by these two ladies and it was a delight to be able to spend time with them on our trip to California.

We love you Sandy and Gail!  Though we are hundreds of miles apart, you 
both are always in our hearts.

Meeting Baby Jackson

Our oldest daughter Rachel and her husband had a baby on March 1st, 2017.  Here is a picture of baby Jackson with John when he was just a day or two old.  He is a cutie!
A few days ago the rest of us finally got to meet Jackson.  He sure has grown in three months!  He is a cute little chunk!

It was nice visiting with Rachel and Anna too.  It's great that the two of them live so close
to each other.
