We had an amazing weekend in Naples this past weekend with our family. I love hanging out with my family having fun together! Here are some pics from our fun weekend!
Fun at the beach! Mj was so excited to swim in the Gulf of Mexico! =)
Gabe loved the sand.
Jadyn loved making "mud pies"
A great night for a walk on the pier.
We were all excited to see dolphins.
And we got to see a bunch of pelicans.
An amazing sunset.
Job loved his baby pool under the tent on the beach.
Hangin' out with my buddy.
Dinner at Joe's Crab Shack.
I love this guy!
We were so excited to find a Rita's in Naples! We haven't had Rita's since we lived in PA
Before we left, we headed to a community park to let the kids run off some energy.
Looking for alligators before we left.
Driving through the Everglades on the way home.

Mj is officially finished with 4th grade and is now a 5th grader! Gulp! I'm so proud of the work has put into his 4th grade year. It definitely has been a harder year for him, but he endured and did well. We acknowledge that it is only by God's grace that he has done so well.
Congratulations MJ! We are so proud of you!
Congratulations MJ! We are so proud of you!
Holding his honor roll trophy and folder full of certificates!
Mark and MJ look like twins today! ;) I am so thankful that Mark works on campus and can be a part of these special days at school.
While Jadyn & Gabe were playing Mj wanted some pictures with Job. He loves his baby brother! Jadyn was so excited for Mj. I wish I would've had a picture of her face when Mj got a trophy! She was beaming!
Mj loves carrying Job around. He was going to show off Job to his classmates!=)

Wednesday night was Awana awards night. The kids were so excited to finish up their year of Awana and receive their awards for their hard work.
The Puggles were absolutely adorable all lined up in a row and getting their certificates. Gabe will be moving up to Cubbies in the fall.
Jadyn won Cubbie of the Year! She was so excited to get a medal to wear around her neck. She has only taken it off to sleep! LOL She will be moving up to Sparks in the fall!
Mj got an excellence trophy for finishing book 2 in Truth in Training
Jadyn & Mj pose with their awards!

I am so thankful for the opportunity to be a mom of these 4 amazing kids! When I was a little girl, I always imagined myself as a mom but I couldn't have imagined the craziness of life with 4 kiddos! =)It was easy to be a mom to be Cabbage Patch Kids, not as easy to be a mom of 4 "real" kids! ;) I'm thankful that God gives me the grace I need every day as I parent these 4 precious gifts and teach them of their Rescuer, Jesus and how much He loves them.

Wow! I've been a horrible blogger! There's bit some sickness going around the family and busyness with the end of the school year, but I am here to update on life.
Job is sitting up pretty well by himself. He loves the Fisher Price Noah's Ark with the animals. It's definitely a favorite toy of his.
Job also started crawling this past week. He's got the army crawl down and is really moving very quickly. I forgot how quickly they learn to crawl. He is all over the place now! Where has the time gone? He's my earliest crawler and I'm hoping this doesn't mean he'll be an early walker! This momma is not ready for that!! ;)
Gabe has started saying, "I love you Mom, too" just randomly throughout the day. It melts my heart!
Craziness and silliness are always happening around the house.
We've been watching the Miami Heat in their playoff games.
Jadyn has been all about feeding Job his supper. It's quite messy, but they both enjoy it!
And just cause he's so stinkin' cute, I had to add another picture of the Jobester!
Poor Jadyn had an eye infection and ear infection. She got the worst part of the sickies. I'm so thankful she is feeling so much better!
We were able to get some house projects finished. We've been here in Miami for almost 2 years and we're still slowly getting our house to look like a home! ;) We got our family pictures up with the wall decal my sis-in-law got us, a new dining room light. My amazing hubby built our new dining room table and bench and we got some new chair from IKEA.
I also got this wall finished. I'm so thankful for pinterest! It inspires me! ;)
