Enjoying Florida

Enjoying the indoor pool in the Hammock, it was a little cold in Feb so the indoor one was perfect!
Willow just chillin.
Ms. Rachael and Braeden live right around the corner so they were able to meet up with us really easily.
Trying to get a picture....
Later in the evening, Mish and Graydon, Tara and Derek and all their girls stopped over for a late night dinner.
A picture of Maren with the girls.
My lovely friend Candy holding Lane at the Golden Lion, one of Ryan and I's favorite restaurants on the beach.
We even stopped in to watch some Upwards games and was able to see the whole town!

Florida continues.....

The girls painting at Grayson and Maren's house.
Ms. Jill bought all kinds of wood items for the kids to paint.
Scarlett was in "Art Heaven"
The kids had so much fun playing with their Florida family.
Love this picture of Scarlett concentrating.
While we were there, we celebrated Grayson's birthday as well.  I think we have missed one birthday since he was born.
Lane helping mommy paint.
we were working very hard on vacation.
Happy Birthday Grayson!
Willow just giggling away at the celebration.
Just love this picture
Thanks Ms. Lindsay for stopping by and seeing us.
Of course, when we play outside we play in the mud and not with the 100 toys that they have.
Later that evening, Will and Jamie came over to our beach house and it was so nice to catch up with them.
Will loves babies, especially Lane.
Love these friends and so thankful for a church that brought us together.  Jamie is one of my closest friends and even though I don't get to talk as much as we like, I love her dearly and we can always pick up where we left off.  Miss her like nobody's business.

Florida trip begins

Our Florida adventure started at the Ronk home.  We were waiting to check into the Hammock so we visited some friends.

The night we checked into the Little Yellow Beachouse.  Braeden, Scarlett and Willow were celebrating Lane's 6 month birthday.
Since Lane couldn't eat cupcakes, they devoured them.
We spent days at the park with friends.
The girls remembered most of their friends and the area.
Sweet friend Tara holding my little dinosaur.
Sweet Willow bean.
the boys working hard on their creation.
Peterson boys enjoying the beautiful day as well.

Lane - 6 Months

Our sweet boy is 6 months old.

Most people don't want this time to fly, but we are clapping our way to this point.

He hasn't been the easiest baby, but for some reason, none of our babies are easy.
You could never tell by this face, but our babies like to cry, not sleep, throw up and give us a run for our money , they are as sweet as can be. 

But at the 6 month point, (put your hands up in the air and give a shout) the tables turn and we can start to see a light at the end of the tunnel.  Lane is now off of his reflux medicine, he rarely ever throws up, he is sleeping longer and eating better.

Things are starting to get brighter around here. (hence the shades).  He is rolling, loves his entertainment center, grabbing things, saying ba-ba for bottle, loves noise, adores his sissy's, loves to be swaddled, just finished nursing, has played with barbies enough in his little life already, goes to sleep in his swing, loves pears and giggles.

Just the other day, Scarlett said, could you imagine if we didn't have little LJ, and I said no, he is perfect for our family and so glad God blessed us with such a blessing.
