Justin and I were able to attend my cousins wedding at the Frio River this past weekend. It was such a fantastic weekend filled with many many many fabulous activities. We got the see the Spazmatics, float the river, dance the night away (twice), visit with tons of relatives, see an incredible fireworks show, sleep in and so much more. We are so thankful to Justins parents for loving on our babies so we could go! I cannot even remember the last time I got to go to a wedding...I have missed out on a bunch (and one very special one particularly) due to being super pregnant, having a newborn, nursing, nobody to watch babies etc. Enjoy some pics...

A few weeks ago we spent the day with someone very special to us. He lost his mommy very unexpectedly ...so we got our crew in the car and headed to Houston to love on him. Jonny has been a best friend to me for a million and eighty years, and his family is very dear to my heart. He stays in our prayers during this hard time. I loved being able to spend the day with him and devote my time to him and give his amazing girlfriend Heather some time to spend with her family. We were even able to make a quick trip to the park so Bryce could get some energy out before our 3 hour drive back home. (6 hours in the car in one day...YIKES!)

my birthday was amazing. i spent saturday through thursday on our FIRST EVER MCELHANNON FAMILY OF FIVE VACATION! my awesome friend was so gracious enough to let us use her beach house...and we had such a phenomenal time. we spent hours and hours at the beach, playing in the sand and watching bryce boogie board. we sat and watched the ships come in, visited the aquarium, rode the ferry, watched for dolphins, built sandcastles, shopped the beachy stores, fished and did a lot of laughing! we came home and immediately headed out to a family wedding (LOTS of pics and more info on this in a couple of days). i have done lots of celebrating with friends...including a girls night slumber party. i have received so many super awesome cards and presents...i am one blessed lady. 26 is such a boring sounding age though. i have to admit...25 was way cooler haha!
here a gazillion beach pics:

Brody has his first "favorite thing" (other than food). Brody is so easy going...he pretty much just loves everybody and everything. He likes all toys and food and stuffed animals and blankets. No major preferences. Just a happy guy. But he now has a most favorite thing...and it just so happens to be one of my most favorite things too.
Harold and the Purple Crayon. The best childrens book of all times. HBO made it into a mini series and I found the DVD at half priced books for $1. Brody has never cared about the TV or watching movies at all, BUT Harold is his man. He claps for Harold, dances with Harold, points and yells at Harold. Overall....my man loves Harold.
The search is now on for a Harold that Brody can drag around with him...

God's gifts come in so many different forms. They come at times when you least expect. His gifts can be mighty, discreet and mostly undeserved. After a powerful amount of time with some beautiful and Godly women...I am (not so subtly) asked by God to count my blessings, admire them, learn from them, seek more of what He wants me to have, LISTEN for HIS WORD...which is by far THE greatest gift of all. One of the gifts I would like to thank Him for today is the gift of our Pop Pop. His relationship with Bryce is so pure and beautiful and of course manly too :) Here are some pictures of Bryce and Pop Pop fishing. What a special time for these children of God. Enjoying the blissful world that He designed so perfectly for us to enjoy the precious moments of life...like catching your first fish.
