So this morning we thought we would spend some family fun time out of town. This was totally random.. it is about a two hour drive and we never just up and go like this. But, this past week of Spring Break hasn't been the most exciting. All the rainy weather has left us couped up inside all week, no outside fun time, no practices, just not a lot going on. The rain has gone away but the puddles are still here.. so we thought we would just get out of town for the day. We didn't do much, but it was nice to just get away and spend time with each other and not think about things. With that said, we obviously did not think things through.. we ran into major traffic on the way there.. after all it is the end of Spring Break and people are on their way home from vacation. So our two hour drive there ended up taking about three and half hours. It was a smoother trip on the way home, no traffic whatsoever. We ended up getting home about 11:00pm last night and the kids were exhausted. We had an amazing time, I am so glad Ryan suggested it yesterday morning. I would like to do things like this more often but maybe a little more planned next time. ha.

(it was a very windy day, can you tell?)

Happy Birthday Casen and Presley! I have goodies for you and will bring them by soon! Big hugs & lots of love!

Also.. I have recently talked with another heart mommy with a different diagnosis.. and I am asking that you please keep Owen in your prayers. This is an amazing family that has touched my heart and they need our prayers as well.


  1. Hi, Crystal. What a beautiful family you have! I found your blog through Kelly's Korner and I just wanted to assure you of my prayers. I had open heart surgery as a small child, and while it was quite different from Bentley's, I still can't help but be swayed by stories such as yours! God bless you and all of your family!

  2. I will def. be praying for Owen, and love the pics of the kidos!!!! :)Hope you have a great week sweetie!

  3. Hi Crystal,

    My family will be lifting yours up in prayer!!Enjoy the rest of your spring that the sun has decided to show up! :)

    Many Blessings,

    Dallas/Fort Worth
