 We went to the Gaylord for vacation and loved it!  It was the perfect way to kick-off our summer!

 We went to the zoo while we were there.

Our sweet neighbor gave Katy Jane and I tickets to go see the performance of Cinderella.  It was wonderful and a truly magical experience for Katy Jane!

January-May 2017

 Our new baby Bear!
 James was with Nana so Jude had to absorb to full brunt of Katy Jane.  She likes to talk.  Jude was trying not to lose his witness.

 She can be rather intense.
 We had to joy of going to our sweet friends gender reveal!  We can't wait to meet Jack Walter!

 There is no doubt that this girl is a force to be reckoned with.  "And though she be but little, she is fierce."

 Finally bringing home Bear!

 Waiting for Daddy!

 Remember that time we ALL had Flu B?  Yeh.  Not fun.

 These babies have my heart!

 She got to help with Mommy's hair too.
