We are blessed to live in a gorgeous part of the country, and we hope to take full advantage of it while we are here. Today we took a family field trip to the Great Smokey Mountain National Park! It was a beautiful day and we had so much fun exploring...
Claire really seems to love being outside and looking at all of our Father's beautiful creation...
Claire looks like such a big girl in these pictures!
I am so grateful for our little family. God has truly blessed me with a wonderful husband and a little girl who brings sunshine to our days! I really pray that I won't take any moment for granted. I love our days together, whether they appear to others to be boring or exciting, because every moment is a gift from our heavenly Father.

Our baby girl is growing up. On the eve of her five-month birthday, Claire tried solid food for the first time...
Here is a little more footage of this momentous occasion. For a bonus, you get to hear Spencer's phone conversation with a classmate :)
What a conundrum. I'll have to let you know how Spencer's syllabus crisis turns out. But all in all, Claire loved the food and didn't want to stop eating. Success!!!

There was a whole lot of napping going on this weekend...
We went to an Easter egg hunt at Northside on Saturday. Claire had fun seeing all the bigger kids as they looked for Easter eggs.
Here is Claire in her "Going to Starbucks" outfit. She is too cool.
Here is our first family Easter picture...
And here are Nan and Papa. How grateful we are for them!!! They are so special. They have taught us how to love the Lord and how to love one another.
Here are all the kids!
...and the boys!!!
We are so excited for Jared and Bonnie. Sweet little Justice Elise will be here in August!
