Sugar bush at King's Landing

Last weekend we went to the maple sugar festival at King's Landing, a history village nearby. We had fun trying the maple candy on the snow and looking at the animals.

And now for something completely different...

My poor hubs doesn't seem to get much coverage on my blog, so I thought I would post this video of him singing "Kiss" for your listening enjoyment. He's singing at his annual conference in Phoenix with a bunch of guys that he works with. There was a real band there, and they allowed these guys to use their set-up for a couple of songs.

Then and now

Rachel came to us wearing this lovely padded suit. It was big and rolled-up on her at the time, but now it fits her perfectly!

Forever Family Day

"Swept Away" by Geoff Moore

We would say your name
A hundred times a day
Like speaking words of faith
And with a mixture of hope and fear and trust
We prayed for strength to wait
And dreamed of how we'd feel the day
You would be in our arms

And swept away,
Caught up in our love.
Home to stay, you'll never be alone.
You'll be amazed at how much you are loved,
Life will never be the same,
When you're swept away.

What once was just a dream,
Is reaching up for me,
And I hold her in my arms,
Lord thank you for the way
You held her all those days
That we had to be apart.
And now I see the impossible dream
Is holding me

And I'm swept away
Caught up in Your love,
Home to stay, I'll never be alone.
And I'm amazed at how much I am loved,
Our lives will never be the same,
We've been swept away.

Swept away, caught up in our love.
Here to stay, you'll never be alone.

Hello from Florida

We've been spending the week in Orlando while the boys are on March break. We came for my cousin's wedding and stayed on for a vacation. We've been having a great time, though it has been far from relaxing. Our flight down was a nightmare, and Rachel was sick for several days. She is much better now, though, and has been enjoying herself. So far we have been to Universal, Magic Kingdom, and SeaWorld. Doing it with four kids is a little crazy, but we haven't lost any of them yet! (except for Julia for a few minutes) Here are some pictures from the last few days.
1. Weddings are hard work!
2. Julia finds her Prince Charming at the ball
3. Q in action
4. Hanging out in the pool
5. The girls at Seuss Landing at Universal
