Evalyn's 2 years old

We had a great time celebrating Evalyn's Birthday, together with great Grandma Majorie and Grandpa Bud (Linda's parents). Joshua bought Evalyn some beautiful flowers and I made the cake. She attempted to blow out the candles on her own but got a little too close, a bit hot. So Joshua and Azariah helped her! When asked how old, "She exclaimed free (three)," holding up all of her fingers. Azariah helped her open her presents, and was very helpful in playing with her new toys:)

Just for fun:)

photo booth provided us with a LOT of laughs the other day and thought you'd enjoy making fun of us as well. I've never seen the kids laugh that hard.

Saturday Morning Outing

Here we're waiting for the boat at the boardwalk to take us to the Swan and Dolphine

We greatly enjoyed bundling up!

It's a windy day and Evalyn just LOVES when that wind blows through her hair.

Azariah found the sand very entertaining. There's a seal (statue) on the beach that shoots water out of it's mouth for the kids to play in. So of course he had fun getting both wet and then sandy:)

This morning we decided to get out of the house and enjoy the cool weather! We bundled up and went to the Boardwalk, an Epcot resort, and great area to go on a stroll. The kids had a blast! We road the boat over to the swan and dolphin resorts and played at the park and in the sand. Azariah stood in line for the boat saying, "Oh Boy, oh Booyyy!" He practically skipped and leaped around the whole morning.
These past few months have continued to be a learning process for Joshua and I as we wrap our heads around life with two kids. God's been gracious to remind us to set everything aside at different moments to spend time loving them and building fun memories that will shape them for a life-time. I've decided that I'm going to work hard to take photos with them (not just of them) so that they'll be able to look back to see how very much they are loved and cared for. It's weighty being a parent, but a HUGe blessing being one of the major shaping influences in their lives ...and a large part of their growing identity.

Cooler Weather Activities

Although we do not get the beautiful fall colors here in Orlando, we have recently gotten a taste of cooler weather. There aren't places in our complex for the kiddos to play, so we've turned our garage into a hang-out.
