At the end of April, we found ourselves in Austin, Texas at Kurt and Mandy's house!! Spending time with our precious family is always extraordinary... it makes for seriously the FUNNEST moments in life. There is nothing better and I think that is one of the times that I am MOST thankful for Jesus, the cross, and the salvation He offers. We will all get to spend eternity in heaven together because we have all accepted Christ as our personal Savior... Although we may not get to be neighbors in THIS life, we definitely will be in the next.
These priceless visits are a just a taste of what's to come...
and that is so sweet to know, especially when the days are long between visits.
Until then, however..
we got to spend a few glorious days all together! While we were there, we celebrated Van turning 3 and Rylie and Sadie turning 4 by taking them to see their favorite person on tv...
Here is Wade and Nathan...
who brought flowers to their favorite little girls.
They got dressed up, rang the doorbell, handed the flowers to the girls,
and asked them to go on a date with daddy.
This was truly a moment that I think the girls (and their moms) will remember FOREVER.
No words necessary.
A precious daddy with his beautiful blessings.
Tears in my eyes, lump in my throat.
My cup overflows.
Hahahaa, Callie's face = favorite!
My better half. Really.
