I don't know why it is but vacation brings illness. It first started with my cold, then Nash got it, then Devin threw up, then me, and now Nash has a fever a week later and won't sleep. We had a great time in California and tried not to let any sickness put a damper on our plans. I'll post some pictures tomorrow or so. My mom flew back with us and is staying until tomorrow morning. We have done a lot of shopping over the last few weeks and she stocked me up with a new wardrobe to feel good about myself. :) Kai did great with his 'papa' and 'gigi' and really adapted well with staying at their house and being alone with them. He got to visit Disneyland 3 times! He's a lucky little boy. It's hard to know he is so loved back at home and we can't be around those people everyday. I often wonder what it is about Illnois that called us here and what God is doing? This is the hardest thing I've ever done and I pray that I'm growing closer to Jesus daily.

Devin got a motorcycle. Yes a motorcycle! It's a long story but we feel that it will save a lot of money on gas because he drives so much. He of course is enjoying his new 'toy' and wants to drive it all the time so he came home soaked from the storm that he didn't expect this afternoon.

I hope to keep this blog updated at least once a week.

Funny moments


Kai likes to put this blue bowl on his head and run around the house. This day he decided Nash needed to have a 'hat' too. Nash didn't seem to mind and I cracked up!


Devin wanted me to take a picture of him as a before shot since he is trying to lose some weight. Kai needed a before shot too he said.

We go home tomorrow! Stay tuned for some updates!

July 4th!

Usually on July 4th we spend it with friends and at my parents house going out on their boat, enjoying meals, and watching the fireworks. This year we knew we had to do something or we would surely be homesick! We went to a pastor's house out in the country who had a huge acre yard and a pool. Kai fell asleep on the way there and we put him onto one of their beds and he remained asleep for another 2 hours! Nash fell asleep and woke up as soon as we arrived and refused sleep for the next 5 hours! So while everyone was enjoying the pool and sun, I was trying to calm my fussy baby. He is also in the stage where he cries if anyone but me holds him.

Later that evening I dropped off Devin and Nash at home to go to bed and Kai and I went to watch the fireworks at a local park. He loved them and would call out the colors with each one. The ones that were really loud he would roar at. He roars like a lion in defense of anything that makes him mad or scares him. It's cute, when it's not directed at his parents!
