We were able to get a bunch of beautiful hibiscus bushes so Mark worked so hard this weekend to trim our trees and make our back yard look like a tropical paradise! He, of course, had some help!

Mark and I were able to get away this weekend for an early anniversary/last time before baby comes gift! =) We've been wanting to check out the west coast of Florida so we went to Naples. It was absolutely beautiful! We definitely are planning on taking the kids over there on a day trip. It was so nice to have a break from the kids, to recharge as a couple, and just enjoy some relaxation. I'm so thankful that Mark planned this for us! I really needed it! Here's some pics from our weekend.
Rockin' the 3D sunglasses to watch the Amazing Spiderman in 3D!

We ate a lot of ice cream this weekend! ;)

We got to see a dolphin at Naples Pier.
I love this man!

We were so excited when Mark & MJ made it back from the Wilds on Saturday!! Mj had so much to tell us about camp! And Gabe & Jadyn were so excited to have their daddy and big brother home! Mj said his favorite thing at camp was boating and his favorite meal was French Toast. I've seen God work in his little heart. He really has been trying to be obedient and a servant. I'm so thankful for the fun he had and the lessons he learned this week! He had an awesome week and he can't wait to go back next year!

Wilds for the first time this year. I can't believe he's old enough to go to Jr. Boot Camp. I was supposed to be there, too with our youth group, but I needed to get an ultrasound so we decided that I should stay home. Mark's there and giving me all the details. Mj's having a blast (and he's taken at least one shower that we know of LOL. Do you know how many times I told him he needs to take a shower and brush his teeth!!!)! I can't wait to hear all about his week from him. They'll be home tomorrow!!! I saw this picture of Mj with his counselor and some of his cabin mates on the Wilds website! =)

I had to get an ultrasound yesterday because I was measuring larger than I should be. It appears that Job is a big boy! The doctor said he weighs about 4 and 1/2 lbs. (Yikes! I still have 9 weeks and 4 days to go!) So glad to get another sneak peak of our baby and to know that he is healthy and definitely growing!
I cannot wait to kiss that sweet face!

Last Friday our friends from PA the Storcks came to see us for the week! The kids were spoiled rotten by Uncle Bob & Aunt Sue and we had so much fun (even though I was so sick for the first half of their time here and Gabe got sick - We made the most of it and had a blast!) It's always fun to have visitors! Here's pics from our week!
We enjoyed a picnic dinner on Friday down at South Pointe Park and watched the cruise ships leave.
The kids enjoyed cooling off at the splash pad.
Checking out the view of South Pointe Park.
Fun at the play ground.
On Saturday we went to Marlins' Park and watched the Marlins play the Phillies.
My Phillies fans!
Monday we relaxed at home since I was pretty sick.
Tuesday we took a quick trip to Matheson Hammock Park, but Gabe started feeling sick so we had to go back home.
On Wednesday we celebrated the 4th of July. We went down to Bill Baggs Park on Key Biscayne in the morning.

After naps we went to our church's July 4th picnic. Gabe played with his friend Ali.

After the picnic we went down to the Biltmore to watch fireworks. Gabe & Titus enjoyed playing football together while they waited.

Cooling off on a very hot day!
