May Bear Sightings!!

We've seen lots of Bear paw prints around our house this month...must be the warm weather! Playing outside has been his favorite thing to do this month, especially playing baseball outside (note the many baseball pics to follow)!
Our neighbor was chopping down some trees in the backyard so Lil' B wanted to chop down a tree too...
Our friend Emma is hanging out with us over the summer and Bear's got her into the baseball frame of mind too...hopefully not too begrudgingly!
Visiting with Great Grandma this month
Already practicing!
A super fun visit to Fossil Rim...more pics of that trip to come...
It's the perfect weather for some Slip N' Slide fun!
Fun times with paint!
Hope you're having great day! See you soon!

Weekend Getaway

Ben and I headed out to our favorite B&B in Granbury this past weekend for some rest and relaxation. We love the Inn on Lake Granbury! It's absolutely beautiful, there's a heated saltwater pool, delicious breakfast, hot tub, swings and chairs overlooking the lake, a dock to watch the water from and did I mention how beautiful it is there?! It's our favorite place to go for a short getaway! We swam, ate too much good food, walked around town taking photos and just sat and watched the water. I admit we missed Lil' B quite a bit! It was our first time away from him for more than 24hrs and it was hard, but very much needed. Even though we were missing our little guy, it was a truly wonderful weekend!

The B&B...

I love roses...

The pool...

We were bonding... excuse my crazy hair, it was super windy!

He looked!

So relaxing...

Around town...

Adoption Fundraiser - Garage Sale!!!!!!!!

To all of our family and friends,

As most of you know we have started the journey to bring home a precious little boy or girl from Ethiopia! We have been so blessed by our sweet Bereket and are super excited that God has called us back to Ethiopia for a second time. We really couldn't be more overjoyed! Bereket has grown so much over the past almost two years, I can't believe it's been that long, and has filled our lives with so much laughter and joy. He's going to an amazing big brother!

The cost of international adoption is expensive so we are asking for your help. We will be having a garage sale April 27th and 28th and are looking for donations! It's spring cleaning time so if you have anything lying around or in storage that you need to get rid of and would like to donate to the sale, please send it our way. We can even pick up items from you if that's easier for you. Also if you have any folding tables or clothing racks that we could borrow for the sale, please let us know. We'll make sure we get them back to you!!

We'll be taking donations for the sale until April 26th. If you have any questions please let us know!

Thank you so much for all of your love and support,
Ben and Linda

March Bear Sightings!!

March came and went so quickly this year! It's a super busy month full of celebrations for our family! Three birthdays and an anniversary which means something going on every weekend. Not to mention our already busy weekdays. Let's just say I'm really looking forward to a little bit of down time in April. Here are some of my favorite pics from the month of March...I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!!

Bear with Papa, Abuelita, Grandma and Grandpa at my birthday dinner!

Playing at the zoo. He said the termite mounds looked like pinkie and pointer fingers!! LOL
Rain boots and a measuring tape...makes perfect sense to him!

Daddy and Bear... I LOVE this one!!

His absolute favorite thing to do..put on his "football uniform" and play ball. The next Tony Romo in training!

This one make me smile. Such a cutie and he's growing SO fast!!

He had so much fun painting a birdhouse for the backyard birds.

Family!!!!! Forever grateful to our Heavenly Father who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or Him be glory.
