"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

The Bradley's come to visit!!

It has been 9 long months since we got to play with our best friends from Arizona! Benson and Carson were SO excited to see each other! They got right to business...wrestling! Erica and Benson came for 2 whole weeks, and Scott came for the last week. We soaked up every single minute that we were with them. Our first day together we spent enjoying the beautiful weather at the park. Aunt Erica is a kid at heart! She jumped right on the swings like the rest of them! We had a nice picnic lunch too... And made up our own racing game! Erica and I got all 4 kids down for a nap at the same time and enjoyed our Starbucks coffee and girl talk time! The best part, they slept for over 3 hours! After naps, we were back outside for bikes and sidewalk chalk. The next day we headed to a different park and played some more. Benson and Carson were inseparable. Such sweet best friends... On Thursday, Erica and I had a nice lunch date with my sweet Mama. Then Benson and Aunt Erica got to visit the kids Preschool, meet their teachers, and see their classrooms. Benson got a little taste of what Preschool life is like since he will be a big preschooler in August! And Aunt Erica got a taste of what it's like to juggle Carson, Tanner, and Hannah on Thursdays at Preschool! Ha! On Thursday night, my parents watched the boys so that Erica and I could enjoy a nice, kid-free dinner at the Elephant Bar. We had such a great time catching up, reminiscing, and laughing! The Bradley's time here was spent between us and their families, so we went a few days without seeing them at all, but had a blast the next Wednesday at Disney. The last day they were here, we celebrated Benson's 3rd birthday at a park with Nicole and her boys, Courtnee, and Jamie and Hannah. It was such a fun morning playing! What a blast we had over the 2 weeks. We miss them all so much already, but I am looking forward to my first trip to Arizona this summer!! We love you Bradley's! Thank you for such a great time!
