Each member of our family is so different, like individual components of a symphony. But, like a symphony, each part is important to the overall structure and sound of the piece. We all work together to make a beautiful sound...our family. Just as the Lord knit us together in the womb, He is now knitting us together as a family, for His glory, outside the womb.

Estes Park

We took a short morning trip to Estes Park the other day. It just happened to be the Scandinavian Festival...not quite as big or well known as the Scottish/Irish Festival, but enough to slow up traffic and cute nonetheless. Many people were wearing traditional Scandinavian costumes, while others wore fun viking helmets with horns. We didn't go to the festival, though. We went to the other end of the downtown. Once there, we didn't have much time to do stuff (as often happens when you have nap and nursing schedules to keep). Cadence was convinced we were going to a park with a playground because it's called Estes Park. She was determined to find a slide, and did, but it belonged to a hotel. When we finally convinced her that we weren't going to a park with a playground, we ate lunch. I love eating out in Estes because the waiters and waitresses are always from various parts of the world and have fun accents. After that, we took a stroll down the main street for some sweets. I got a big cookie and Brad and the kids picked out some gummies at the candy shop. Right after that, it started to rain, so we booked it back to the car as fast as our little legs would take us. It was a fun little outing and we are so grateful to be within day trip distance of this beautiful town!


  1. What fun! I think it is beautiful, too. I'm so sorry to hear about your ankle. Mend quickly, sweet mama.

  2. That was a lot of fun! I had no idea Finn would be so greedy with the gummies. He was willing to fight to the death to keep that little bag of sugar! What a blast!
