A Day At The Beach
We spent last weekend at the beach with the Dockstader Family. It was good to get away even if only for a couple of days. The kids got to explore the tide pools and we also had a chance to visit the elephant seals. It didn't matter that it was 51 degrees outside we still couldn't keep the kids out of the water! Jack had a great time chasing the seagulls and Tanner & Hannah came home with a bucket full of sand dollars & seashells. Maclynn and I had a great time just enjoying the kids.
March 16th was Jack’s birthday. I tried to post an entry and photo album on last Monday, but couldn’t get it to work. So here’s a little recap of the last 4 years...
His first 4 months were a little rough. Due to infantile seizures that would cause him to stop breathing he was put on anti-seizure medication and an apnea monitor for the first 4 months. At 4 months we celebrated a clean bill of health!
He brings us so much joy and laughter we feel truly blessed to have him as part of our family. Happy Birthday Jack-Jack!

It’s A Girl!
Unfortunately, I don’t have as much time as I would like to devote to this post. We found out this morning that we are having a girl. She is healthy and we are soooo excited. Hannah has been counting the days until we could find out. She wants a sister so bad. So my mom & I showed up at school with pink cupcakes and a balloon. Needless to say she was thrilled and Tanner was excited about the cupcakes!
