Park Days!

Park days are here! The boys are in love with the park! The week after it snowed here we went to the park every day. Its a great way to spend the day! We had a nice weather day yesterday so I took them to the park. They are older now and love to run and play. Its also a nice place for them to be able to play with other kids.

Owen is searching for what he wants to go play on first!
(side note - don't you love the hat?!? He refused to get dressed without it lol)

Isaiah knew just what to do - climb to the top!

. . . and slide down the biggest slide they have!

 Happy Boy!

Owen at the top of the slide! 

And on to the swings!

and on to more climbing! Isaiah loves to climb!

Owen came up to me and said, "Cheese!" and smiled just like this :) Does that mean I use the camera too much? hehe

The boys throwing a ball together! There were many kids their age and they were all throwing this ball to eachother! It was so cute to see

 More climbing :)

They totally did this on their own! Im so happy I caught it!

How cute is this kid?!?

We had a great time at the park. I have a feeling this is what our whole summer will look like. . . and I couldn't be happier about it. I am so blessed to have two boys that love to play!

I have to appologize for being MIA for over a month now. I realize, after reading my last few posts, that I left in a pretty rotten spot in our lives. I guess I owe you all a little catch-up on what has been going on since my last posts.

Owen had a pretty scary hospitalization last month. My head was not in a good place and Owen was extremely sick. He was fighting a terrible infection and his body was taking a beating. Amazingly, once they removed his broviac, the infection was cleared quickly with antibiotics. It showed us that the infection was clearly growing in the broviac and probably had been for several months. They were able to place a new broviac after only 4 days. He came home soon after that on antibiotics.

Since Owen's last hospitalization, Heath and I have been trying to get our life back on track. We have had a very personal and very emotional month. The roller coaster we ride on is never ending but we are learning to cope with the aches, pains, and nausia that come along with riding a roller coaster that doesn't stop. Our family life is starting to slow down and feel a little more "normal". This blog is usually my escape, my place to talk about our struggles and daily battles. However, the past month I couldn't really understand my own throughts and feelings. We have been through a lot and I thank everyone who reads for keeping us in your thoughts and prayers.

I am now back to the swing of things and will be blogging more regularly again. Stay tuned . . . my blog post tomorrow will include some pretty cute pictures!
