Warm and Cold

Once upon a time, not too long ago. After a long, cold, snowy winter. Between warm snow-melting and snow coming down days. There was one. Perfect. Day where winter coats were shed down to sweaters and hats were donned and the puppies ran with their humans to the Doggy Park to frolic in the sun and explore, bark and talk.

I also got to play with Danica‘s lens baby for a while. Fun!

Planks of Thankfulness

Recently some women from church finished going through One Thousand Gifts: A Dare to Live Fully Right Where You Are by Ann Voskamp.

In one of the chapters Ann talked about how each time we give thanks for a moment we are building a bridge that brings us closer to God. This made me think of the many bridges at Springbrook. Even the Creepy One.

{Craguns} Digging Up Fun

Ryan and Jayden are a whole different ballgame of entertainment than the Three J’s. Instead of fishing they dig holes. Bury chairs – and each other. Throw things. Eat strange things. Like wood. and sand. Just to be crazy.

Where it is fun to watch the little guys play and listen to the things that pop outta their mouths, it’s always great to watch these two because they are pretty awesome too.

{Craguns} Three J’s

Please welcome my three favorite little J’s to your screen. Jordan, Judah and Baby Gup.

It was a blast to be able to spend more time with them on their visit from MO. Watching them grow up from far away is hard and they (all) crack me up! They all love swimming (Gup would prefer to be able to kick his legs) and going on Boppa’s boat is a MUST! Jordan got buried in the sand just after his bath, Judah had a blast playing with Kristin, and Baby Gup had his first ice cream cone (at 5-mo!). They certainly keep a person on their toes and everyone in stitches with the things they say!
