Beautiful day!

It has been absolutely beautiful today. We spent a lot of time outdoors, Hudson loves to be outside. It's amazing how big he is getting and how much he interacts with us now (in fact he is trying to type right now). It has been a huge blessing for us to be able to slow down today and enjoy all that the Lord has given us. I hate that I can be consumed by my circumstances and blinded to all that God is doing around me.

We want to teach Hudson to enjoy God and enjoy the life that He has given us and in order to do that Christian and I must first model that. I pray that God will continue to show us grace in this area and that through that grace our hearts will begin to change and we will look more and more like Christ.

Saturday at Southfork Ranch

Saturday we went to Southfork Ranch for a picnic with our church. Yes, it is the same Southfork Ranch as the TV show Dallas. In fact, we got to tour the home. I guess it would have been a little more exciting had we ever seen the TV show. Nevertheless, we had a great time with friends and met some new ones. Here are a couple of pictures from our adventure.

A week of firsts!!!!

This week we have had several things happen:

1. Hudson can now roll over back to front and front to back
2. He is getting his first tooth (middle bottom)
3. We started feeding him rice cereal
4. We played with finger paint

Here are a few pictures. He is growing quickly and constantly entertaining us.

We had a great Easter! We spent the weekend with my family. It was so great to finally have an Easter Egg hunt again now that we have some "age-appropriate" kiddos. Here are a few pictures from our weekend. It was truly a blessing to spend so much time with family and we are truly thankful for all that the Lord has done.

Dallas Arboretum

We went to the arboretum on Sunday and had a blast. It was so refreshing and relaxing to just walk around with friends, looking at creation and enjoying the beautiful weather. We took tons of pictures. I can't wait to take Hudson again when he is a little older and can run around. Here are a few of the pictures.
