Creepy Pic of the day...

There's always something special about watching your kids sleep. (And no, it's not just because they're quiet and not moving, but we won't decide that it's not a slight bonus, ha ha) Ever since Hannah showed up, it's always been a moving thing for me to watch them. It gives me opportunity to reflect and pray over them, as well as just to think of all the things I enjoy about them. Isaac is no exception. But, each time I see him sleeping in his little Moses basket, all bundled up nicely, there's just something creepy about the way he looks. All nice and peaceful, but at the same time, a little like he's perhaps a little too peaceful.

New Playground!!!

Something VERY cool has happened in our village...they opened a brand-new playground! Just in time for spring! The other day, we all got out on a nice (yet cold) day and just played and laughed and enjoyed the glimpse of Spring coming right around the corner. The great thing is this ground is just a couple minutes' drive from the house adjacent to the local sports grounds. Already having been there a couple of times, we've run into loads of people that we know. It's going to be a great place!

Got a capture of Isaac's face when we put him in the swing for the first time. I'm not sure he was liking where this was headed...

But then, the smiles came out! He loved it!!!

Hannah showing off some hopscotch skills

First time all 3 kids in what we refer to as the "bubba-tub" swing

Now THIS is the main attraction. It's a zip line! You get up on a ramp on one end, and zoom down to the end where there's a spring mounted on the line which both softens the end of the line, but shoots you up in the air a bit too. This is a continuous motion capture of Hannah all stitched together...came out cool!

And, not to be outdone, Cailyn had a go. I'm no longer allowed to walk next to her on the ride after this, her first time. She's a pro now...

This is actually the first picture I took at the park that day. Jen just ran and jumped on it! The girls thought it was hilarious seeing mommy do it!

And of course, I wasn't to be left out!
