Spring Blessings

We've been enjoying nature this month! After a few weeks rest the end of April, we've been more adventurous and spent some time in the great outdoors! I'm reminded of Emerson's quote, "Nature never hurries. Atom by atom, little by little she achieves her work." We spent the last few weeks enjoying God's creation, atom by atom, little by little, exploring what God designed for our pleasure and His majesty. So this week my blessings list will be taken from our outdoor Spring adventures.

922. The trees we climb in!

923. Hugs from Daddy

924. Friends who have big trucks  that we can play rough with.

925. Special  water weapons from Titi and Tio for Easter!
926. The pool is open for business, or at least lots of littles with lots of energy!

927. A little girl who is without fear and LOVES to play in the water!

928. A place to cool off and get rid of pent up energy after a long day of school work.

929. New swimming shorts!

930. A timid brother who finally got into the water and swam unassisted! Gabers you were so brave!

931. Strong arms and great abs!

932. Lost in the moment with the water splashing, the children laughing and a sweet picture of my girl.

933. Friends who invited us on a hike to a place we've never been before. Turns out Eagle Mountain is super close to us! Now we have a new place to be adventurous this summer!

934. Benches and tired children who ran and ran out energy for over 2 hours.

935. Girly who loves to pose for momma's incessant pictures.

936. Cacti and the fact that no one was injured on our trip - despite Drew's best efforts!
937. Springtime chicks for little boys to love on.

938. Farmer Gabe who loves wagons and the great outdoors.

939. Abby's obsession with the myriad of acorns at the farm - it wouldn't surprise me if you actually digested one!
940. Sweet Sue and Belinda and their families who blessed us moms with horse rides and sand!

941. Brave Gabers who was the last to ride and was quite worried about falling off. I'm so proud of him!
942. Rain! We really needed some and the boys loved the puddles and their camo rain boots.

If spring came but once a century instead of once a year, or
       burst forth with the sound of an earthquake and not in
       silence, what wonder and expectation there would be
       in all the hearts to behold the miraculous change.
                                                                  - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
