Big Cedar Vacation

We just spent a week at Big Cedar Lodge in Missouri with Daniel's family. We had a great time and appreciate Nana and Pop making this trip a possibility. We'll probably post other pictures, but for now enjoy these.

We had a photo session with the whole family (hence the white and denim), but snapped this prior to meeting with the professional. Abram was a good sport!

This is our favorite picture from the whole trip. We took a pontoon boat out on Table Rock Lake one day. One chilly, cloudy day. Anyway, the life jacket was hilarious and the views were amazing.

Before coming home we made a quick trip to Sedalia, MO to visit some friends. Abram loved riding the 4-wheeler for the first time!

A trip to Tupelo and a Baby Dedication

Abram and I enjoyed a brief trip to Tupelo to visit my parents and sister. We enjoyed some R&R and some good company. No pictures to document the event, but Abram visited Neenee at her school one afternoon. A couple of Abram's highlights are as follows:

Spending some quality time with Grandpa on the screened porch.

Eating green beans in The Man's Club (a.k.a. Grandpa's workshop). This female was given special permission to enter as I had the youngest and newest member with me.

"Sons are a heritage from the Lord, children a reward from him." Psalm 127:3

On 4/27 we dedicated Abram to the Lord at our church. What an important thing as parents we can do to publicly admit our son is a gift from God and we are entrusted to "train [Abram] in the way he should go." (Prov. 22:6) Both sides of the family were able to join us for this great day.

(Daniel's parents, us...of course... my sis and her hubby, my parents)

Taken after a long morning and before Abram's lunch. (Note the "I'm about to lose it" face on the little guy.)
