Our precious boys...

Our precious boys...

Monday, August 8, 2011


You read that right, I turned 31 today. I know, I can barely believe it myself. I try not to think about the number of how old I am. I just give thanks for another year and celebrate life's precious gifts!

It was my first birthday as a mommy. And a special one it was! We had a nice day together on vacation in Detroit Lakes, MN. It was a beautiful day in at the Lodge. We took the boys in the lake and played on the beach. It was their first time in a lake and on sand. Elijah was really into the sand and probably ate a good teaspoon or so! And Will was throwing it all around.

Even though I took 5 minutes as I passed a mirror to pull out about 20 gray hairs, (Yuck!) I'm not going to let it bother me. Such is life. Ahh, a beautiful thing. And I suppose I can always start dyeing my hair. :)

Playing on the sand for the first time. Elijah enjoyed eating it (that guy was so fast and sneaky at getting it into his mouth before we could stop him!) and Will was throwing it around!

Will's first time in the lake!
