A peaceful day

Things have been so stressful for our family lately. Yesterday we decided that we needed a day away from it all, just for a little while. We went to the zoo as a family and had a wonderful time together. I have found no greater joy than in the moments we share in happiness in our family. I think one of my favorite things to see at the zoo is actually the other families! I feel such hope when I see families happy and enjoying being together.

The flowers are always so lovely this time of year!

We went into the butterfly house, and that was magical.










I love Matt so very much! He makes every single day, and every single thing, wonderful. :)



Teeth, anyone?



I love these girls. :)



I feel that my husband and children are the five most perfect and choice people ever created. I am so honored to have them all in my family! :)
