With the nice weather finally upon us, it's time to start having some FUN DAYS!
We're planning some serious fun this summer, and there's going to be a lot of "firsts" for our family, but until that time, we'll be having some fun exploring places a little closer to home. Recently, we needed a few days away, so we decided to take Nathan to see some fishes. He LOVES sea life, so a trip to an aquarium was the perfect mini get-a-way to recharge our family batteries. I don't know about you, but life can seriously get out-of-wack if we don't balance family time with work time. And, I don't mean those stay-cations we hear so much about, but #let'sgetoutofthishouse time together.
Our first adventure was to the Boston Children's Museum and the New England Aquarium. I've wanted to take Nathan to the aquarium for a few years now, so I knew he'd love it.

I'm not sure where our next adventure will take us, but the wheels are turning and we're looking forward to it.
I don't know about you, but I appreciate gifts that people have put time and thought into - whether it's handmade or something purchased from the heart. I get this from my dad and my Aunts, who both love making gifts and put tremendous thought into the meaning of just about everything they buy. So, with Mother's Day approaching, I wanted us to make Nathan's Grammie something really special. He absolutely LOVES his Grammie and asks for her every day. Even on Mother's Day, he woke up and went to the garage door. I said, "where are you going." He said, "Gammie." He always drops the "r" - it's sweet. :-)
She put a new deck on her back porch last year, so I thought we'd make her a big flower pot for decoration. Not just any flower pot, but one with Nathan's little hand prints as the flowers and a poem that was reflective of his unconditional love for her. As you'll see, it came out super cute and he had so much fun doing it.

Thanks Pastor and to all the men for their service to us!

It's so true and will be hung on our family room wall.
