Happy Birthday, Doug!!!

Here's my honey on his 32nd birthday!!!
Happy Birthday, My love.
May the Lord Bless you and keep you!
May he give you many more healthy and wonderful years!
We love you, babe!!

Disney and Daytona totally rocked!!!


We were able to enjoy a terrific Spring Break Vacation in Disney World and Daytona beach. Disney was absolutely fantastic. We hit a perfect week. We had WONDERFUL weather (86 degrees or higher) and it was NOT crowded. We heard the week before we went was the busy week. We went with Doug's parents and his sister, her hubby, and their children. We couldn't have had a more amazing time!
Bren got pink eye, but the Lord was faithful. We were able to have a prescription called in and a drugstore delivered the med to our resort. He felt bad one day, and was much better by the next morning. (Thanks to the Lord!!!)
We enjoyed seeing the boys enjoy Disney. We wanted to go again before it wasn't "magical" anymore. They both wanted to ride all the big rides. Bryson was FEARLESS. He rode the "tower of terror" without a whimper!!!! So fun!!!
After a jam-packed schedule at Disney, we were able to VEG at Daytona beach. I was so thankful for that time! Again, the Lord blessed us. The weather was perfect. We all needed to be outside in the sun!!! The boys enjoyed finding clams, swimming, and building sand sculptures.
I have posted a TON, seriously, of pictures of our amazing time posted below! I never want to forget these times!!!!

Eat your heart out Emy, I posted a ton of pics!!!! I'll try to do better!!!

ENJOY!!! (LOOK BELOW) Be sure when you look at the Disney pics that you see them all. There are some on the "older posts" section at the very bottom, or you can use the side bar and click on all of the Titles. Enjoy.
