Dancin' With My Father God...

Tonight we put worship music on for us all to listen too and Avery just started dancing away! It was bringing tears to my eyes because the lyrics of Big Daddy Weave's song Fields of Grace say: "Dancin' with my Father God in fields of grace" and "I love my Father, my Father loves me, I dance for my Father, my Father sings over me." It was just so sweet to see my daughter dancing to a song like that, definitely one of the most precious memories I will have of her. I pray that someday she will know that God does sing over her and I hope that she will dance for her Father God.

Labor Day Adventure

Yesterday we decided to take a family hike up to Waterfall Canyon. We were very excited to go on this hike and interested to see how Avery would do. So we loaded her up in the backpack carrier and off we went!

The description of the hike said it was a difficult hike, but it was only a little over a mile so we thought even if it is difficult it would be a short trail. The first half of the hike wasn't too bad it was pretty much dirt and a little rocky. The second half...was all rock, absolutely no dirt. Just so you know too this trail was uphill the whole way. Finally we made it to the waterfall! It was gorgeous and the view was just as amazing. Avery played in the water and did a little of her own mountain climbing on the rocks at the waterfall. After a half-hour of playing and eating snacks we headed back down the trail. We were very impressed with how well Avery did. The only time she was unhappy was when we put her back into the carrier, but as soon as we took off she was fine.

After the hike we were very tired and sore of course! We also had a BBQ with some friends afterwards so needless to say by the end of the day we were all ready for bed! Hope everyone else enjoyed their Labor Day!
