Hello Dear Friends!
  My friend Danielle over at the The gaertegang just did a post of her beautiful flowers and it so inspired me to do the same!! you should go check out her blog it's a great read.
I am just in awe of the Lord and His creativity in creation. this week all my flowers have just seemed to pop with color. I just can't get over how Awesome our King is to create all of this for His glory and that we get to enjoy it too!

Our Morning Hike!!

This morning we went to Swallow Falls State park for a little Hike, it just about 20 min. from our house, and boy was it was such a blast!
Jon and I use to hike all the time when it was just to two of us. but to go with all 3kidd'os was a HUGE Adventure.
Liam loved all the rocks and logs to climb on and Lanna did her best to keep up with him, but she is very careful  with each thing she does and is very "Tareful" ( Careful) as she says!
Aiden was in the wrap most of the time, but squealed with delight as he watched L & L take their little adventures here and there! but when he got out was very quick to do what big brother was doing with just a little help from Daddy!
Here's just a few shots from our day!!

L & L!

                                                                  I just love this one!

That was our day!
We praise the Lord for such a great place to live with fun things to do just a few min. away!
Have a great evening,

Mary Kay Giveaway!!!

TimeWise® Microdermabrasion Set

Good Monday Morning to you!
Just about every day we ladies put make up on and go about our days.
 I grew up with my Mom using some Mary Kay make up and night creams. I can still remember the smell of the one she would use at night on her face, and the sticky feeling it left on my lips after I kissed her good night! But I always thought that Mary Kay products were for older grown up ladies, but Boy am I wrong!!
I went over to Amy's  Mary Kay sight and I was amazed, and  Yes! you can call me "old school" for not realizing how much make up has changed since I was little, and that tells you just how much make up this busy Mama really uses now too! :)
Amy has offered one of my great followers a wonderful gift of a TimeWise Microdermabrasion Set a $55 value!
Here's what Mary Kay has to say about the 2 step set!

Family Pix!!

Good Morning!!! I Just wanted to share a few family pix with you.
Some how last Sunday morning we all ended up matching and so I thought it would be a great time to get a quick shot at our Church Picnic!!
In our family it always seems to be the first pix that is the best and then everyone gets distracted and doesn't smile well. But because the kids were so excited about the picnic they were all just a but wacky, so here's the best two shots for now!!!  

Have a great day!
