Currently a "bushel of boys" that I manage! While being a full-time mom and wife, I love to bake nearly anything and everything (while tasting along the way), exercise each day and challenge my body, spend time with family and friends, and most all ... enjoy the gifts and moments I get each day with my husband and four boys: Jonah, Reuben, Matthias, and Abram. Through it all, I want to come out with a smile and a heart directed towards the Lord.

Silver Dollar City
About a month ago, we attempting a trip to Branson, Missouri to visit Silver Dollar City. A theme park set in the 1800's that I have been going to with my family since I was in utero! Lots of great memories ... and one of the most family-friendly places in the world! Wholesome and fun. Well, that weekend it poured buckets of rain, and my morning sickness suddenly took a serious downtown. It was NOT good trip (although we did get to see some dear friends that we don't get to see often enough!) in regards to Silver Dollar City!
So, we attempted again last Thursday and Friday for a quick trip! We have season passes, and wanted to take the boys ONE MORE TIME before it gets too cold! And this mama seriously needed a day or two away from home and work and feeling overwhelmed!
It was perfect. Amazingly beautiful weather ... no meltdowns (which is truly a miracle!) ... the boys enjoyed every second of the park ... Jonah rode his first (little) roller coaster ... and family time was great. My dad, Eli's mom, and Eli's little sister came along, which was really fun. Here are some good memories ...
