a day of fun...2.27 (sorry! found these old pics on my diaper bag camera!)

since drew was still recovering from surgery on his birthday weekend, we tried to do a few fun little things to mark the special day...
the yorks met us for a movie and frozen yogurt date!
later that day, we went on a family walk and bike ride!
we didn't realize it was quite so windy! jake was miserable!
the walk was short lived, but we still had a great time and burned off a little energy (well, jake notsomuch)!

our first days as a family of 6...

miss sheri came over sunday night to meet matthew and bring us a delicious dinner!
our first ride ALL TOGETHER in the van. it is quite full. its a bit surreal to look in the rear view mirror and see all those kids and remember they are ALL mine :) so thankful!!!
