We had a fun girls (and little boys) week up at Sunset Shores. We went with my mom & Liz, Laura & her boys Ty and Josiah, and Kathy, Rhonda & Taylor. The boys had so much fun playing together on the beach, rolling down the hill, playing 'ring around the rosie', and squirting eachother in the pool. We went to Johnny's Fish and Game Park for the first time, and got to see and feed lots of animals and fish. We ate way too much, got some reading done on the beach, and Laura and I even got to play some double solitare after the boys went to bed. Just like the good old days when we'd play about every night in college :)
A few nights ago Jonah and I were going to enjoy a bowl of ice cream out on the deck after dinner. As he was trying so hard to carry his bowl outside without spilling his ice cream he says "Thank you Jesus." I say, "What are you saying thank you to Jesus for, Jonah?" "Thank you Jesus for ICE CREAM!!!" :) Thats my boy!!
Last weekend Chris built Jonah a sandbox. We've been having lots of fun this week filling buckets, building castles, digging tunnels and throwing sand all over the yard... he's had a little trouble remembering the rule about that. It has brought out all the neighbor kids too, now the big kids are always coming over to see if Jonah can play. They get kind of mad though when Jonah smashes their towers.. :)
Chris & Emily were married in May of 2000. On November 30, 2006 we were blessed with our son, Jonah, who has brought so much joy to our lives. On October 26, 2010, our beautiful daughter, Madison, was born, and shortly after her birth she went home to be with Jesus.
Chris recently changed careers, and started at Hilliard Lyons as a financial advisor. Emily works part time as a server at Pizza Hut, and full time as a mommy to Jonah. We have also been high school youth group leaders for the past several years.
