1st Grade!

Today was Addie's first day of school.

 She was excited but I could tell she was pretty nervous. She knows a few of the kiddos in her class from last year, I think that helped ease her mind a little.

 I cannot believe how fast our little girl is growing up. I am so thankful for her. She makes me crazy at times but I know she will do great things in her life. We love you Miss, have a wonderful year!

Today is my due date for our third child...By this day we should have a little tiny baby to love and hold. Dealing with two miscarriages has made me realize that I suffer in silence. Most women with infertility issues do. People forget and move on...as they should, but we are left with a broken heart wishing things were different. There is no away to avoid it, no way around it...it is always there. I have 3 women that I know that were due with in 2 weeks of me. They have had their babies, it's another reminder that I will not have mine to hold...not on this earth. I know that there is reasons I have lost these babies...it doesn't take away the pain I feel inside. I know there will come a day that I will see those sweet faces...I cannot wait for that day!

It is so hard to explain to a young child why we lost our baby. Time after time she asks "when will it be our turn to have a baby?" What do you say to that? I know at times her heart hurts too. I am thankful for my sweet Addie, she brings so much joy and love to our home.

I hope and pray someday the Lord will bless us with a baby, until then I would love for Him to hold my broken heart.

How can it be that 6 years has passed? It seems like just yesterday I was holding a tiny little baby, now that little baby is turning 6! She is now a little girl! I am so blessed to be her mother. She brings so much love, joy, and laughter to my life. She always keeps me on my toes, that's for sure!

Happy Birthday Addison Kay! I love you so much!

Make a wish!

Cousin visit

Madison and Meah stayed with us for a little over a week. I tried to keep the girls busy with different activities.
We made a fort up in the loft.

Silly girls

We made play-doh

River time!

Ready for fireworks

We had a crazy dust storm this was about 5 minutes before it hit us.

Headed into the phoenix children's museum

They have a HUGE recycled steel and wood play structure tree house thing.

Movin' on to the shopping area

On our way home we stopped my Baskin Robbins

We got a deal at Jambo an indoor amusement park

We went and checked out a new pool around here that had water slides. The girls loved it!

This evening we went on a little adventure and went geocaching. The girls were so excited!

We found it!!!!

To cool off we went to Bahama Bucks! Madison said it was heaven in a cup

We've had lots of fun!

San Diego day 3

To wrap up our great time in SD we heading to Seaport Village. Again all of these were taken with my phone so excuse the crappy pics. Something is better than nothing right?!

We went on a carriage ride

Later in the afternoon we went to a family friends community 4th of July festival. We all had a blast!

Who says adults can't make sugar tube things

They had some awesome fireworks too!

After the fireworks we met up with a family friend that is a cop. Addie has been fascinated with cops lately so she was so excited to see the car inside and out.

The female officer called Addie her new bff and gave her a sticker badge.

Overall we had a wonderful trip!
