This blog is about our family, who have dealt with the loss of two sons with Muscular Dystrophy, the adoption of a son diagnosed with Agenesis of Corpus Callosum and the birth our a healthy little girl. It's a crazy life, but we are loving it.

Western Days Parade & Goodbye to Good Friends

We had a busy weekend. Saturday was our little town's Western Day Parade. Most of the pics from the parade were taken by Emily. Here are few that she took.

Ethan ready for the parade with his candy bag.

I took this one of my handsome boy.

 I took this one too. My boss is in the Tahoe and that's our Sheriff handing out candy.

Pawpaw on the phone with his brother.

This lady called my dad over to her. Looks like he went willingly.
And this afternoon after church, we went to lunch with our good friends the Fleming's. They are moving to Washington next month and we met them for lunch to catch up and say our goodbyes.

 I will really miss these wonderful friends of ours. We went to the same church for years. They were there for us when Chandler was born and after he passed. They were there when Mark became the youth pastor at that church and encouraged us so much. They were there for us with the adoption of Ethan and Ethan is so very special to them, almost like he is their grandson. They were always thoughtful, loving, kind and so funny! I will never forget the love the poured out to us when Chandler died. They will truly be missed, but they will be 15 minutes away from their daughter, Yvonne. The Lord has worked miraculous with this move and every thing has gone so smoothly. This just proves that God knows the desire's of our hearts and he can do above all we ask and even think .

Ephesians 3:20
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us.

We love you Bob & Marion.


  1. Looks like a nice time, your family is adorable. Sorry your friends are moving away, maybe you can have a nice new place to visit though! xoxoxo Nan

    1. Thanks, Nan. You're right, I didn't think of it that way. WA might be a really nice place to escape this crazy Texas heat!!

      Love, Jennifer
