Snow Day!!!

We had an awesome Snow Day with our friends, the Shabaglians!

Of course, Brodie took it up a notch by building a jump!

Even Keeg tried it out  :)

Time for lunch!
Heading back to the cabin to warm up!

Once we got back to the cabin, Keegan began creating (one of his favorite things to do!)

Thank You, Jesus, for fun family memories in the snow  :)

Our Friends - The Castros

Last Tuesday our dear friends son, Brett, was hit by a car. Miraculously he survived by the grace of God!!! He has a long road of recovery ahead of him but we are all so thankful that he will be fine!!! We are praying that Jesus will draw Brett and his whole family close to Him in this time - that they will grow tremendously in their faith and love for our Lord! They are such an amazing example of a family who follows Jesus wholeheartedly at ALL times. The Castro family is also in the process of adoption!! They are adopting a son from Jamaica...we are so excited for them  :)

The night before Brett was hit they launched a fundraising campaign for their adoption. They are asking friends, family and anyone with a heart for adoption to help out...all they are asking is that we contribute $10.00 if  we are able and also, to spread the word! Here is their blog and here is the site to their fundraising campaign. We are hoping to SURPRISE them by really getting the word out so that when they get home from the hospital their need will already have been met!!! Please check out their site and read more!!!

Happy Easter!!!

We had an awesome Easter Break...we relaxed over at the coast!

 We spent time at the beach
 We went down to the tide pools - always one of our favorite things to do!

 Keegan caught crabs with his bare hands!!!
 We ate at some of our favorite restaurants
 The boys weren't quite brave enough to go all the way in the water

 We walked on the walking trail down to the beach
We came home and spent Easter Sunday at church learning more about the Powerful and Awesome Love of our Savior who died for our sins and Resurrected that first glorious Easter morning!!! Then we enjoyed BBQ-ing with our family!
 And we can't forget about the Easter egg hunt...

We enjoyed having an extra day off and now we are getting ready to go back to school!
