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.

A Day at the Farm...I Mean, Grandma & Grandpa's

Today we went out to Brighton to visit my parents. It was a grey morning, but cleared up to be a beautiful blue afternoon (though my mom still stayed in her double layer of clothes, a sweater and turtleneck, despite the warming of temperature).:)

We were greeted with hugs and kisses and then off to the backyard for an Easter egg hunt that my mom set up. Finn had to find the blue eggs and Cadence had to find the pink eggs. They were hidden in really hard places too, like the grass and the tree with no leaves. Just kidding, it was great! They had fun finding their eggs.

From there, the kids went promptly to the swings and slide. Poor Miss Aria was not feeling well today, due to new teeth, we think. So she was a bit of a grumpy pants, but she made it through the day relatively well. She was happy while swinging and strolling in the the stroller, though.

After lunch, my mom took the kids out to feed the neighbor's horses. Not only did they get to feed the horses hay and carrots, they got to sit on them too! The neighbor also let each of them take a turn driving the tractor down the street. I think Finn enjoyed honking the horn the most, while driving.

Finally, the wind picked up and the tumbleweed started rolling. So we knew it was time to go before we were swallowed to death by all those rolling weeds. It was a lovely Saturday with great food, great company, a great nap (for Brad) and great fun!
