Family Fun

Since hubs was off work Monday and LO didn't have school, we decided to take the kids out for a little fun! We went straight to our local Chuck E. Cheese, mostly because LO loves that joint and hubs and I can manage to put up with it for an hour or two (as long as it's not "too" busy). We pulled into the parking lot and it was minivan central! Haha! Apparently since there was a day off from school, the entire county decided Chuck E. Cheese was the only place to go!


We headed in and the fun began! It was so wonderful to see both of my kids playing and having fun. It's so easy to take things like trips to Chuck E. Cheese in the middle of cold/flu/RSV season for granted, but we cherish outings like that and are so grateful our boy is healthy enough to do things like that! He is SUCH a blessing and I cannot thank the Lord enough for His provision over Chase. I don't like the uncertainty looming over our heads right now (early spring cath possibly followed by an early summer Fontan!?), but I know God knows what He's doing, and it's our responsibility to trust Him and put our faith in Him.

Sorry for my little soap box speech... didn't mean to get off topic. Just reminding myself really of how blessed we are and how amazing our son truly is!

Without further ado, let's see some pics!

She's so excited! Ready to play!
Seriously. The girl is excited.
Riding with her pal, Chuck.
She LOOOOOOOVES riding this horse! We could hardly get her to take turns with the other kids!
This boy. He's my love! It felt SOOOOOOO good to see him doing "normal" things like LO did at his age. Such joy!
He had a blast! It was SOOOOOOOOOO wonderful to see! Such a big boy!
Big sister liked the slide, too!
A little too much fun for this boy! He was O.U.T. before we left the parking lot! LOL!


  1. Mama I hate to break it to you but I've noticed in the last month or so that Chase is losing that "baby" look. He's turning into such a handsome little boy with a wise and knowing face. If only there were a pause button to life, right?

  2. So cute! Now, I'm not a person that is very good at "seeing" when kids look like someone. But in the picture of LO on the horse (the side profile) she looks just like you! (Or at least the pics I have seen on Facebook :) ). And I agree with Lisa, Chase is turning into an adorable little toddler!! How did that happen?!?!

  3. I love LO's smile. It's the real thing and not the cheesy one she used to give all the time. I noticed the same thing with Chase, and agree, he is just becoming an adorable toddler! So glad to see the family doing normal family things!!
