You Scream, I Scream

We all scream for
ICE CREAM!!

Today started off by sleeping in until 8:30! That's right, all three of my children slept late which was a miraculous event around here. I actually got a full eight hours of uninterrupted sleep. Wahoo! I made some french toast for breakfast and washed it down with some cranberry-apple juice (we were out of orange juice. gasp!) Then I went about the process of getting everyone dressed and ready to head out to a birthday party. Our friends' son Hayden had his third birthday today and celebrated with a moon bounce and a cookout. The kids had a blast jumping on the moon bounce with their friends. Then we headed out to visit some new friends of ours, The Daggs. We only recently met them and their precious son, Kannon. Kannon is the same age as Lucas, but during the birth process, his brain was deprived of oxygen and as a result he is now severely disabled. He requires 24 hour care, and it is hard for his parents to get out of the house. So we came to them instead! I got to hold and snuggle that sweet boy while we chatted with his mom and dad who are amazing people by the way. The last eighteen months have been so very difficult for them, but they have handled it with amazing grace and incredible faith. So glad we had the opportunity to meet them!

On the way home, we stopped at Braum's for some ice cream. Hannah and Lucas went for a classic flavor-- chocolate. Leah usually goes for vanilla, but this afternoon she decided to take a step out of the flavor box and go for Birthday Cake! It is a crazy blue color with bits of real cake mixed in. I'm sure it is off the charts in the sweet category, but she loved it (as you can see by the look on her face!).

Now we are home. Lucas is asleep and the girls are watching Megamind. I love full days like today.

What did you do on this fine Saturday?
