Easter Vacation

We've had a really nice Easter break. It was so nice to spend with family, but personally for me it was a nice break from the adoption blogs and the Guatemalan adoption forums. I purposely didn't bring my computer along so I could stay focused on having fun! I took a few pictures to show you what we've been up to the last week. I'll put the captions under the pictures...

The boys dying Easter eggs- My oldest son is such a "typical male". He's got to be in charge of the T.V. remote even when it's off!

The finished product- one dozen beautifully dyed Easter eggs

My sister-in-law and I getting Easter brunch ready for the family.

The day after Easter, we packed up and headed out to Palm Springs with Kirk's parents. The boys and I are roasting marshmallows in preparation for the perfect S'mores!

I turned off my flash, tried a new setting on my camera and got some candids of the everyone making S'mores. I love the glow of the firelight.

Nana, Papa, and my three boys

The temperature was in the upper 80's. It was so fun to pretend it was summer and run around in our bare feet!

If you look closely you can see the baseball blazing through the blue sky.

Cruisin' around in the golf cart
The kids think I'm the craziest golf cart driver. To be honest, I do kind of like to "floor it" and make them scream like girls! Hee, hee, hee!

I may call PGN tomorrow. The thought of it makes my heart race. I miss Isabella so much. She never ever leaves my mind. I love to hear the boys pray for their little sister. They haven't met her yet, but you wouldn't know it from their prayers. It makes my heart so proud!

To my blogging buddies... Thank you for your prayers for Isabella. Don't stop! Our PGN approval has to be close. It is SO hard to wait, but the Lord gives me just enough hope to make it through each day.

Lamentations 3:22-23... Because of the LORD's great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail.
They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.

Looks like you guys had an awesome Easter! I wish it had been in the 80's here, but it was rather cold! I have a good feeling about your OUT being real soon! I have read where the tide has turned in regards to how long you stay with the first and second reviewer! The second one is now the short stay! That beautiful Princess will be home before too long and ooh so worth the wait! Big hugs!
