A treasured find!

A few months ago, John was thumbing through some old photo albums at his mom's house and found this picture. This picture was taken the night before John and I were married. We went swimming at the hotel. Mary Caroline was not too happy about me getting married at all...She use to greet John with a knock on the head with her fist. On our wedding day she was in between the two of us untying his shoelaces and putting rocks into his shoes. Needless to say, she has come a long way! :) She no longer greets him with a knock on his head with her fist!! We love you daddy and May May!

Path of Memories

Two years ago today we said good bye to our sweet baby Kathryn. We had the opportunity to have her in our home for 5 1/2 months. Kathryn was exposed to a virus that attacked her heart which took her rather quickly and silently. It is amazing to realize how time has moved forward bit by bit...especially when it seemed to stand still for days. Last year we had the opportunity to visit her grave site in Missouri. She is buried next my daddy. We did not head north this year but headed to the Path of Memories. The Path of Memories is a children's memorial spot at the end of Turkey Creek. We have placed a plaque in her memory. We like to go there from time to time to feel close to her. It was a perfect spot to be on such a peaceful day. We love you sweet angel baby and cannot wait until we are reunited and have you in our arms again. What a glorious reunion that will be.
