William Turns Four


We celebrated our littlest love last week. 

For his birthday he wanted to go the Zoo so that's exactly what we did.  He LOVED every minute of it. He also spent an afternoon at the cutest little goat farm feeding and playing with baby goats.  

Over the weekend, we had family and a few friends over to help celebrate his special day.  It was a fun-filled week of birthday activities for our little guy and we are so thankful to friends and family for helping us make his birthday a special one.

Happy Birthday to our sweet William IV.

We sure do love our sweet boy.

Halloween was super laid back this year but the kids were just as excited as any other year.  

We took the kids to a neighborhood nearby and it worked out perfect for them to go out to do some trick or treating.  We planned out our costumes but part of our whole family matching costumes did not arrive until the day after Halloween so we were not able to pull off the cute family halloween costumes.  I think Isla Rose (Snow White) and Douglas (Doc the Dwarf) looked so cute together and William was happy to wear his Spiderman costume.  I ended up throwing on some cat ears and painted up my face a little.

Hope you all had a fun and safe Halloween.

Summer 2020


Summer has come and gone.  

It's been a while since my last post so I am going to share some of what we were up to over the summer.  I hope to be able to spend more time sharing updates on here and I know that I am way overdue for an update on Isla Rose and her journey through vision loss and living with LCA.  I promise I will spend some time to update you all very soon.  For now, here are a few pictures from our socially distanced adventures over the summer.
