All about the girls and Daddy’s girl.


We are just loving life! We are extremely blessed with God’s goodness. Ava’s body is healing and she is just so happy. I feel like I keep repeating myself……”She is so full of life!” I have to sit back and take it all in. If you would have told me just a month ago (We were sitting in the hospital at this time.) that Ava would be hopping, jumping, running, and dancing, I probably would have laughed at you. Miracles are just around the corner for ALL of us if we just “dare” to believe.

A few days ago I took the girls to a very large nature park around here called, Starrs Cave. I loved going there as a little girl. Ava loved to skip down the trails with her big sisters.


My beautiful girls walking the long bridge to the Cave.


And who turns around to see if I am coming?


Carefully looking in the cave.


This is my favorite picture of the day!



Okay this is a great one too. I felt like Heaven was shining a light upon them this day.


AND of course she HAD to see the water with her sisters! They are great helpers.


We had a great day!

Today was a gorgeous day here in Iowa. We got some Daddy’s girl pictures at the park. You can tell the love these two have for each other.






Ava is not one bit scared of this lake. She loves to walk right by the water. It makes for beautiful pictures for Mommy.



Ava taking time to smell the flowers!




We received a wonderful box of goodies today. Thank you Julie! Ava was floored by ALL the Teletubbies items. She won’t put any of the things down. She drags the basket around. She loves everything. The books, the stuffed Teletubbies, the cup,  the videos and all the toys. Here is how happy she was….




Julie you lit up her day and ours too. We love it when she is overjoyed. We appreciate giving all these thing to Ava and the girls. THANK YOU!

I want to thank you all for your love and support. We have so many followers and we owe her health to all your prayers. God hears and He is near. God be with you all!

What a very pretty place. What part of Iowa are you in? Cody has a few soccer tournaments in Iowa coming up this fall. I think we will be in West Demoines and another city that I don't remember at the moment. It starts with a "M" and I have never heard of the city.

I love the picture of the girls holding hands. That one if sooo precious.

Glad she is doing so well. It is now her time to live pain free!
