Special People, Special Times

We had a wonderful week last week with our granddaughter, Hannah! We think she is totally amazing. Everything she says and does completely captures our attention and hearts. We are madly in love with this beautiful child and can hardly believe we get to share her life!

Jana's birthday was July 26th and the balloon and fruit arrangement were from Grandma Jan. It had fresh strawberries, pineapple, kiwi and mango. Delicious!

We were so glad that Grandma Jan, Hannah's "Great" Grandma was able to be with us too. She had so much fun playing with Hannah, helping her put on shoes and making sure Hannah had sunglasses like her!

One of the highlights of our week was celebrating Hannah's first birthday. We made a lemon cake, and Jana let Hannah have a couple of bites. I am sure that is the first sugar and white flour she has ever had! Hannah wasn't very impressed, she definately prefers fresh fruits and veggies, whole grain bread, oatmeal, and plain yogurt.

We took Hannah to the Children's Museum of Richmond. She enjoyed wandering everywhere and exploring everything and we had a great time chasing her around. She particularily enjoyed the cars. She would climb in and move the steering wheel like she was driving. She even made noise while driving. Is she amazing or what? She enjoyed crawling through tunnels and the archeology dig areas filled with a sand like substance made out of rubber where she kept picking up handfuls and pouring them out. Her favorite thing was the water area. A large water table inside and a sprinkler area outside.

Needless to say, David and I were having a great time too.

To top off this already great week, Brett and Jes came for the weekend. They brought their little "girl" Cali. She and Hannah got along great!

Special friends, Christy and Lauren wish Hannah HappyBirthday"!

We missed Patrick very much. He was in Oshkosh, Wisconsin working at a huge air show. I think he missed us, too!

Praise God from whom all blessings flow! Family and friends bring such joy. Thank you for sharing in our lives!

David and Des
