Comfort and Joy

I will turn their mourning into gladness; I will
give them comfort and joy instead of sorrow.
Jeremiah 31:13

Cousins and Uncle Ryan in town

The cousins and Uncle Ryan came in town last Wednesday afternoon for their spring break so we tried to pack in as much time as we could with them.  Thursday morning Austin took a "personal day" so we could all spend the morning at the zoo.  It was a perfect day to be outside and such a treat to be with so many of our favorite people.

Uncle Ryan was a kid magnet.  Every niece and nephew wanted to be held by him or be right beside him.
We enjoyed lots of the exhibits.  Untitled Untitled Untitled
Dingdad is always matter the age.  I love that about him. Untitled Untitled Untitled
Maggie spent a little time in the stroller having a snack and just chillen.  I thought it was hilarious how she had her feet up on the stroller just laid back.Untitled Untitled
We made it in time for the Sea Lion show.  The 5 big kids all loved it.  Maggie was quite a handful because she doesn't know how to stay still and there were concrete steps everywhere which would have been quite dangerous if we had just let her go.  All the adults took turns entertaining her.
She loved the Sea Lion bubble.Untitled

One of my favorite pictures!
On Friday we drove out to the Spence's after I picked the boys up from school to spend the afternoon with our family. The kids were in heaven all being together. Untitled
We called Maggie godzilla...she would just pound through the legos without even flinching. Untitled Untitled
Yaya and Dingdad have so many legos from their kids childhood. Ryan dug through and found some lego people from the first and second generation. The 1st generation didn't have arms, moveable legs, or a face.  The 2nd generation all looked the same for the most part in the faces. Untitled
We are so thankful for a great few days with family!  Such a blessing!
