Snap Shot

Just a little snap shot into our "break" time from off work, school and everything. Wooo it's been a treat and we are loving it. Seriously feeling spoiled and really rejuvenating. God is good!

Josh's Parents got us a hotel for two nights and we all hung out there these past three days. It was so relaxing and fun to just all be together (even if we were only 20 minutes from home). Joyful and Fun all together!

Lots of fun games were played as a family...


We even went to the Mall of America and shopped till we dropped... literally ;) Actually not, but we got some delicious frozen yogurt from a new shop at the MOA. It was a very happy thing!

The boys took Aimee to Nicolodean Universe while us girls finished shopping. Fun! She loved it :-)

Very own Joshy Photography. Pretty good if I do say so myself! :-)

We came back and they had put our cute new blanket out that we got from Laura (my sis-in-law).

Such a fun, fun time away. I feel like tomorrow should be Monday but it's really just Thursday. Woo hoo!! We are so excited to have a few more days off. 

Also, a heavy heart tonight as I sit here. I am so thankful and feel blessed in so many areas. God, truly thank you. I am praying for those less fortunate this evening. I love that God knows and is the ultimate giver of good gifts!
