I am happy to report that we had a SAFE trip and a wonderful time. As I have been plotting this blog post I realized that we crammed A LOT into this weekend!
Friday morning began with quite the treat--Grandma Polly's famous cinnamon rolls! We devour them, love them, crave them! They are amazing and truly the best in the world. Let's just say that we got our fill of carbs this weekend!
Minnie was in love with the Cabbage Patch dolls!
Mickey loves to be out on the farm...
I love this father and son photo.
I am sure that Papa Norm had nothing better to do than to entertain Mickey with tractor rides!
The rest of the trip home was one that nearly catapulted Hubby and I into insanity. Minnie discovered that she could shriek at a decibel that I am pretty sure is copyrighted by Mariah Carey. This lasted intermittedly for 3 hours. Hubby said his ear drums are permanently damaged. We literally would cringe and hold our breath when she screeched! It was like fingernails on a chalkboard!
The weekend ended in a sweet celebration. When we got home we gave Hubby his Father's Day present--an indoor remote-controlled helicopter. We had a blast flying that little thing all over the house! Minnie was very hesitant about this little flying copter, but then decided that she wanted to conquer it and eat it. We rescued the copter from its demise just in time!
It was so cute to watch the kids clamor and climb all over Hubby. The memory of it makes me smile as I write this. I am so thankful for a Daddy that devotes himself to our family. Hubby cares about our spiritual well-being over anything and I love that
To any single gal out there--you will never understand how incredibly important it is to marry a man who is passionate about God until after you are married. I have posed this question to a friend who was weighing the question of whether or not her boyfriend was marriage material: "if you get married, have children, then find out that you have been diagnosed with a terminal illness.. could you rest in trusting that this man could and would give your children a solid spiritual foundation in your absence? "
A man that loves God is a treasure. Thank you God for Hubby and his sacrifices and love for our family!
