Spring Break - Part 1

Decided to play a little catch up on here and talk about ALL that has been going on in the past few weeks!  We celbrated Eli's 2nd birthday surrounded by family.  Eli was dedicated shortly after his birthday and we followed the dedication with a birthday party for Eli.  We loved having as many family members as we did and Eli LOVED everything about it.

One of his presents ... a super hero costume!

We also had a wonderful spring break.  We packed the car (and I think we had everything but the kitchen sink in there!) and headed to South Carolina!  Our sweet friends just moved there in November and they showed us their wonderful southern hospitality and welcomed us all to their lovely home for several days.  We had lots of fun playing outdoors, eating some amazing seafood, celebrating Easter and just hanging out with them.  God has truly blessed us with these amazing friends!!

 We have so many great pics and memories that I thought I better divide this post into 2 parts.  We left South Carolina and met up with friends in Pigeon Forge for a few days.  The entire trip was truly wonderful!!  We have never regretted taking time seeing and doing new things ... especially the time we get to spend together as a family!!
