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.

Glenwood Springs

Good friends, good scenery, good times. We went on a mini-vacation with our friends, Kevin and Mimi, to Glenwood Springs! It was so much fun! I LOVE swimming in the hotsprings, and, thankfully, so did the kids. We got there early, when it was still cold outside so that the steam was rising off the pool. This was Aria's first time swimming. She seemed to like it! We all swam together in the big pool for awhile and then the boys took a turn in the hot pool and then we switched and Mimi and I went into the hot pool. That pool was too hot for the kids, so they stayed in the big pool. A generous man and his little girl even put money in the jacuzzi seats for Mimi and I, what a treat! Finn was pretty adventurous in the water. He let Brad throw him up and all over the water. Cadence was more methodical about what she was doing and wanted to do things by herself. She had her tube and kicked herself all over the pool. If it were just Brad and I, I would have stayed in that pool all day. Did I mention that I LOVE swimming and playing in the water?!:)
It was a pretty relaxing time. Other than swimming, we walked up and down the main strip, went out for ice cream and dinner, and just hung out and talked. We had a little kitchenette in our room, so Mimi and Kevin brought stuff for breakfast and we brought stuff for lunch.

The kids did a great job sleeping, as well (well, Aria wasn't so great the first night, but by night 2 she had it down!). Finn and Cadence slept together the first night and then they were in and out of beds with each other and Brad the second night. At one point during the first night, Finn started crying a little. Cadence comforted him by saying, "It's okay, buddy.", and he went back to sleep. What a sweet sister.
Kevin and Mimi are such wonderful and Godly friends. They were so generous and willing to put up with us and the kids. We love the Burches!
The kids did a great job on the car-rides and it was a surprisingly relaxing and refreshing time!


  1. It was a super duper time. I love you sooooooooo much!

  2. It looks like you all had a very fun wet time! I love floating in the water, too. I think I need to visit the springs soon!
    Aria is quite a fish like her mama!
