Referral Day Anniversary...


One year ago today we saw Emily's face for the first time and our lives were changed forever. She is all we hoped for and more. Emily is loving, funny, spicey, and stubborn all rolled into a tiny little package with the most beautiful smile. We have been blessed beyond measure and are so excited to have this little spitfire in our lives. Happy referral day baby, we love you to the moon and back and 20x around the sun.

Memorial Day....


Today we spent the day with the Flannery and Villareal clans. We had a great day swimming, laughing and having fun. Thanks for letting us come hang out, love you guys!

Also wanted to take this opportunity to thank all of our soldiers for their service. We appreciate all you do and sacrifice to keep us free. Happy Memorial Day!

Rink of Dreams...

Today Matt played in a Rink of Dreams game at the St. Pete Times Forum. Afterwards we went to dinner  with Doc and Terri and then to the Lightning game. It was Emily's first pro game and she had a lot of fun cheering the Bolts on.  Unfortunately we lost to the Panthers 5-3 but Marty St. Louis did secure the Art Ross trophy for having the most points in the league.

David and Kara's Wedding


The daughter of our good friends, Michael (Doc) and Terri, got married this weekend. We have watched Kara grow up and become the beautiful woman she is today. We were so honored to be a part of her special day. The wedding was beautiful and the reception was a lot of fun. We all had an especially good time in the photo booth :o)

A Mini Beach Get Away...

4/10/13 - 4/11/13

Our friends Michael (Doc) and Terri's daughter Kara got married this weekend. Since Brian and Sunny were flying in from MN for the wedding we decided to take a couple of extra days off to hang out at the beach.

We headed over to the Hilton at Clearwater beach and spent a couple days playing on the beach, swimming in the pool, and just relaxing. It was here that Aunt Sunny got Emily into the pool. Once she got in we had a hard time getting her out!

 Hmmm, what can I get into?!?!

 Come on, let's play!
