Disney World Blog...Finally!

Our family spent a day at the Magic Kingdom back in June. I am just now getting around to posting pictures on my blog and on Facebook. I have no excuse for being so late...life gets in the way!

We had an incredible time at Disney. It was extremely hot in the am, but cooled off a bit in the afternoon. The kids did incredible. Thankfully, Gavin took a power nap in the middle of the day, so we were able to stay until the parade at night. It was such a treat to go with Noah. He was in awe of everything. We watch the recording of him meeting Minnie and Mickey every day. Here are a few of my favorite shots.

Gavin had acquired a black eye by this point of our trip.
Weren't their shirts great!! Thanks Nikki!

Noah and I riding Dumbo. Noah was a trooper with all of the rides.

Noah's 3rd Birthday

My baby boy is 3!!!! We had a wonderful time celebrating his big day! Our original plan was to have two little parties. One for some of his friends at our house in Seneca and another for family while we were on vacation. After our air conditioning went out at the house (at one point I was making cupcakes while it was 90 degrees inside), the Jarvis's allowed us to have it at their neighborhood pool. It worked out perfectly!!!
Noah and the traditional b-day breakfast!
The cupcake tower! He had a Curious George theme.
Singing Happy Birthday!
We had another great party while we were on vacation! We were in Orlando, so the obvious was our theme!
There's no hope with his smile these days!
A guitar just like his daddy's! I am hoping this helps us take a little break from the drums.
I am so thankful for my little man. He has taught me so much about love, about Jesus and about myself over the past three years. Most of all, Noah has taught me about being patient! I have heard many people say to never pray for patience because God will definitely put in you circumstances where you will have to exercise it. Well, I for one am glad that Noah is teaching me to embody this fruit of the spirit and in turn, helping me to look more like Jesus. I love you little buddy!!!!
