We enjoyed such an amazing spring break in Daytona Beach with Doug's family. It was so relaxing to get away from it all!! Here are tons of pics. Enjoy!I took this pic from our Hotel...breathtaking! Our 2nd day we headed to Sea World. Here we are waiting for a show.

He is Risen, Indeed!!!!!!

Your family is adorable and your diva, well she is exactly that! How beautiful! Thanks for the comment you left me a while back. I've been the lamest blog-drop-out in 2010.....but winter, which had me in a gray funk is gone and Spring has sprung and I'm slowly putting my feet back in the water, so I'm glad to visit your blog and blessed to see the joy you share!!!!!!! Would love to know more about your China story! ;)

Bless you!

I just love all the pictures!! God is so good!! Family is what life is all about. I love to see Lola with her brothers. There is so much love between the 3 of them. What would we have done without her. Can't wait to add more memories at Myrtle Beach in June.
