The Ladybug and Miss P Do The Florida Aquarium

Ok so let me start by saying first off I messed up, this is not the place I had intended on us going, but oh well. Laura had told me about another aquarium, I thought that was where we were going...NO. Not a total bust but not completely awesome. It was just our speed for a first outing, and coming from a landlocked state we have prett low expectations of an aquarium.





But no day would be complete without a trip to the pool!! My two fish have had tons of bonding time in the pool which has been great. The Ladybug continues to have a love for the water :)


Of course Miss P and I were the cheering section!!

Free At Last

Today we can begin our journey free of the wires, the timed feeds, the temps taken every three hours, the beeps, and the alarms coming from other rooms. Today we are going "home" to wait for ICPC to come through and the ability to travel back to our real home.


The ladybug is over the moon excited and of course so are Chris and I. Our little family will be reunited. I have been staying at the hospital with little Miss P and Chris has been staying with the Ladybug. We have been making it work but it is time to be back together.

Penelope Hope

Chris and Safi are playing at the beach and the pool while Penelope and I do a little catching up.

She is doing well and eating more everyday, we hope to be out of the hospital by next week. In the mean time I'm catching up on my baby snuggles!

3 Became 4

Once upon a time a boy met a girl and they fell in love. They moved in together, got married, experienced some major life events, and decided to adopt. 

Quickly in toddled a beautiful little girl that stole their hearts. That little girl had her Daddy wrapped around everyone of her fingers. And she melted her mother's heart heart with every peeeeas!!!

But that boy and that girl longed to add to their family, and that beautiful little girl longed for a baby bruder or a baby sister, she wasn't picky. So the three of them headed down that adoption road once again.

This time that road was longer, it was windy, it had many mountains, road blocks, detours, rock slides, and just any other obstacle you can think of.  To put it in the words of that beautiful little girl, that little family has had lots of patience. 

Today that family of three became a family of four.  Safia became a big sister to Penelope and they lived happily ever after.

Rocky Mountain To Celebrate!

What better way to celebrate kinder graduation than to head up to RMNP?  That is exactly what we did!!!

We went home, changed clothes, loaded up and headed out.

Harrison, Amanda, Safi, and I stopped at a very appa pro place for lunch...

Then we headed up into the park. It was a wonderful spring day filled with animals, hikes, snow, snowballs, walking sticks, tic tac toe, apples, looking for bears, tons of elk, photo bombs, coyoto yells, and memories for a life time.
