Another year older and wiser too

Well i guess i gots to blog about my bday! A couple days before i mentioned to CJ we'd gone to the beach every year on my birthday since we've been married and i figured it wouln't be a bday without the beach. So luckily we woke to beautiful blue skies and sun and took advantage and went to the beach and met my sister there too. It was beautiful of course except Lizzy doesn't know what it means to wear warm clothes (she literally kicks and screams at the mere mention of socks, shoes, pants or coat) anyway at the beach i finally persuaded her into pants, but regardless she got cold and cranky too soon, but it was still fun! Then that night we went to a very nice restaurant (the Beach House or somehting like that) nicest place i've ever eaten at and it was delicious (and i'm usually pretty picky when dining out) We went with some of Cj's fam and my sister in law has the same bday as me, so we were treated out! It was really fun. Thanks Mary! All in all, even though i'm older now, it was a great day!

Lizzy scored an A+

I guess i need to add..We went to the eye doctor yesterday and Lizzy's wandering eye is not wandering so much anymore. She has just about 100 percent improved meaning.....NO EYE PATCHING! I couldn't be happier, i was so worried about having to patch her and no need she did it one her own! She'll still wear glasses for a while, but she is doing awesome! GO LIZZY! I feel i also need to add i have been praying and even fasting for her eye to be well enough that no patching was needed and I know the Lord is aware of our needs and concerns and i am so thankful for that comfort and knowledge!

A Day out with Grandma and Grandpa

My parents came to visit last weekend, which is always great to have them around and see the love and excitement Lizzy has for them being here. We took the day and went to Bates Nut Farm, about 30 mins from my apt. It wasn't as much a nut farm as it was a park with huge farm animals. These animals were unbelievable how big they were. It was really fun seeing animals that i've shown lizzy in books, but actually seeing them for real. Geese, pigs, emu's, goats, donkey's, turkey and chickens, llambas. Liz was a little nervous at first, but warmed up after a while and even got into picking up seeds off the ground and feeding them.
