"Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates." Deuteronomy 4: 6-9

Our Arizona Visitors

I can't even describe how excited we all get when Aunt Erica and Benson come to visit!! We are so thankful that even though they live over a thousand miles away, our boys are still close and love to spend time together! Erica and Benson flew in late Wednesday night, and Carson camped out on our bedroom floor so that Benson could sleep in his big boy bed. He was so excited to see Benson when he woke up! Aunt Erica (of course!) came bearing gifts, and fun gifts at that! Carson gives his BFF Benson a hug... After a little bit of playing, we loaded all 4 kids in the car and headed to Chick Fil A for some breakfast and caffeine! Erica and Benson woke up around 7am our time, which was really 4am their time! They were a bit sleepy....such troopers! Lack of sleep doesn't keep this sweet boy from playing! Benson LOVES to be outside! Good thing we had lots of outside activities to keep him busy...

After wearing the boys out outside, it was time for lunch. The cafeteria...haha...
We were so fortunate to have several mornings with Erica and Benson. We enjoyed the girl talk time, and the boys simply had a blast together. Little Doritos snack break... Tanner gets in on the snack break too... The boys in action! Sandbox fun... And dinosaur playtime... One of the main reasons Erica chose this week to visit was so that her and Benson could share in the celebration of Tanner's first birthday! What a blessing to have her and B at his birthday party. It meant the world to us!

We had such a wonderful time with Aunt Erica and Benson and look forward to our next visit together!
