Isn't this always the way....people come to visit and you have the worst weather ever and the second they get back on the plane the weather is beautiful? Matt's parents and Miss Katie came and spent the weekend visiting with us at our new place. The weather had been beautiful leading up to their arrival and then it rained, snowed and turned back into rain the entire time that they were visiting. It figures...last time my poor Floridian friends came to Canada in March we had 6 foot high snowbanks. This was better than snow, however it would have been nice to have nicer weather. This picture is of Matt "grilling out" for the first time on our back deck after he got home from dropping his parents at the airport. I swear the second they got on the plane the sun came out. Hopefully we can provide nicer weather in June when they are back to help with Grandbaby Davis!!!! Regardless of the weather we had a wonderful time with them. It was super exciting for us to show them around our new place, show them the progress on the nursery (pictures coming soon) and show them some of the items we are still purchasing as we get closer to the due date.
As Matt and I spent time making dinner together tonight and reflecting on our time with our family we can't help but feel overwhelmed by how blessed we are to be part of two great families. We are so excited to have our baby and watch our own little family grow. We want our families to know that we are so grateful for the amazing Godly examples they have been for us and we hope that we are able to provide our child with the same loving environment we've grown up in. As we sat on our back deck and ate together (that's right we ate outside in March in Canada...it was awesome) we both felt so blessed for how far we have come this year. The move was tough and still has it's pros and cons but we are grateful for jobs, a beautiful home and the excitement of a new arrival. This by far has been one of the hardest and one of the most rewarding years of either of our lives and we are so blessed to have so much support from everyone who loves us. Thank you all for being part of our lives!
Friends came to join us for dinner!!!
How great is the view from our deck? We anticipate many more deck dinners!
