Awesome week

This past week was great!
Vegas went really well. Our flights were smooth (after we were on the plane and past the near riot that broke out in Newark!!), the weather was fantastic and our patient's preps went perfectly. She cried for joy. Awesome.
Friday we had the day to ourselves out there, so we spent it by the pool sipping Mango daiquiris and relaxing. Awesome!
Sophia really enjoyed herself with the Kurtz's while I was away and Mom and Denise took great care of Miss Alena. Fred has been covering two positions at work and is super busy!!
Alena even got to go camping for the weekend for the first time. She did great and loved it.
Sophia and I went to Mother's Day breakfast together. She is becoming such a mature young lady. It was so nice for her and I to be able to do something together. Denise and the kids joined us and we had a very nice time. We took the kids to play at a park and then visited an arboretum afterwards. We were able to take some really beautiful pictures.
Alena arrived home from camping in the late afternoon. I was DYING to see her. Hearing her say "mommy" was music to my ears. I really enjoy rocking her and cuddling as she settles in to sleep. I look at her sweet face and wonder what thoughts are going through her little head. I think of her birth mom often and pray for her. She has given me the most beautiful gift possible this Mother's Day. Beyond awesome.
I am so thankful to be the mom of these two girls each and everyday.
With love,

During our evening walks, I had been noticing how beautiful the village we live in really is. I don't think I have ever really appreciated it. Most of the streets in the village are lined with gorgeous trees and the Memorial Bridge looks so nice lit in the evening.
I remembered to bring the camera with us to capture some peaceful sights the other night.
We had a busy weekend- did some shopping Saturday night. We bought the girls one of those wooden playsets for the backyard. Attended Jordan's birthday party today and Fred continues to work hard in the backyard. The retaining wall looks great and the seating area around the pond is coming along. It's all filled in and level. Giving it until next year to settle and then we would like to have a cabana built.
I will be away in Vegas this week and it's going to be HOT!!
Love to all,
