Back Home

and we had so much FUN!

Mark and Kimmy rented a Bounce House that was huge.
It was for adults as well as children.
From 10:00 in the morning until 7:00 in the evening we played on it!
There was someone in or on it every minute!
Even our dog, Lucy enjoyed watching.

 It was a total surprise for the children.
I knew before hand, so I
 planned ahead by stretching all my limbs,
 for weeks.
I wasn't going to miss out on the fun!

 Tom had his spot at the bottom of the slide.
Do you see him down there?
Because of his two knee and a hip surgeries,
 he opted out for most of it.
Though he did enter the bounce house 
and slid down a few times.

Kimmy decorated for Levi's Golden Birthday 
the night before, so in the morning, 
Levi woke up to 
a wonderment of excitement.

 Levi received a stethoscope for his birthday
 from Uncle Todd and Aunt Stephanie.

Last May, Silas had Open Heart surgery.
(He is doing really well.)

Lulu decided to listen to Silas' heart and 
then showed him how to listen to her heart.

I love this series of pictures!!!
It bring tears to my eyes.
This little guy has been through so much.

The love between these two siblings, just shines!

God is Good!

(miss you guys)


  1. What fun!!

    I, too. love the pics of the stethoscope!!

  2. Welcome back. I would have been in that bounce house even with my bad back and knees. I would pay for it later too, I bet. What a fun time you all had!

    Maybe Lulu will be a doctor when she grows up.

  3. Ooooo... we enjoyed the pictures, especially the set with the stethoscope. The last one in the bottom right corner is priceless, because it looks like he's hearing something.

  4. Oh Super! I bet it was such fun.
    Happy B'Day to Levi!

  5. Whoa. Now I am sorry we never knew about "Golden Birthdays".

  6. What a PERFECT celebration!! Kimmie sure made this day special! And, even more so since you and Tom were there!! I'd have been on that slide, too. hee hee. I'd have needed Advil that night. ;) Thank you for sharing such a heartwarming moment... blessings ~ tanna

  7. It all looks wonderful! I haven't had surgery myself, so I like to think I would have been in there enjoying it all, from slides to bouncies. I'm really just a big kid at heart.

    (And I love the stethoscope. Just perfect for checking little brother's perfect little heart.)

  8. Hello Dear Friend! Just getting caught up on the last couple posts! So glad you all had such a great time! I would of loved to see you bounce on that thing!!

  10. Sweet, sweet family Christine. It's so good to see you all together and little Silas happy and healthy. Y'all sure do some neat stuff!

  11. I love those Bounce Houses, what beautiful memories you all made, I am so happy to hear that little Silas is doing so well.
    One reason I love photos so much is that they bring us right back to those precious moments in time, and yes, they do bring tears of joy! You are so blessed !
    Thank you for sharing, I so apologize for my absence in blogland this summer, but it has been quite a busy summer, I am so thankful it is slowing down for now.And that is a "good thing".
    Enjoy your weekend,

  12. Aw...such sweet pictures. Glad Levi is doing so well!
    The birthday sure looks fun....bouncy house and all!

  13. I've been MIA in blogland this week but it appears you've had yourself some fun. What's not to love?

  14. Before you wrote it "brought tears" to my eyes I was already tearing up also. What an awesome God we serve. I loved that you stretched for weeks before you went, I am learning to do the same to keep up with all my little boys.Glad you had such a great visit.
