Tallahassee, Etc

Last weekend, we took Iain to Tallahassee so he could visit his aunt Jenna and meet our friends from college days. On Saturday, we took him to the Wesley Foundation to see all our old haunts. He slept through most of the visit, but we enjoyed walking around the property again, seeing what had changed, and talking to friends.

These are the porch steps where Jeremy proposed to me.

Then that afternoon, we had an open house so people could drop by and visit. It was fun to see everyone again!

And that evening, we went to a Greek Festival - great food, fun music, and a magnificent church.

In other news: work on the house continues. The repair part is finished except we still need a new front door as ours is now inoperable, and there are cracks to be patched and painted. Now we're on to the addition. First we need to tear up the concrete in the carport and front walkway. Then the plumber will come and tie into the existing water line. After that, we pour the new foundation and then finally start building!

Thanks to those of you who prayed for Iain's "bubble" to resolve itself. It has! We were told any symptoms would begin to appear when he was 4-6 weeks old, and we haven't seen any signs of trouble. In fact, he's growing like a weed!

We had a day or so of cool weather last week - perfect for walking! Iain enjoyed being bundled in his duck jacket.

And a few more miscellaneous pictures for your viewing pleasure:

Ok. . . FIRST, praise God for Iain's lack-a-bubble! Thank You, Lord!

Second, I LOVE Jenna's hair that short! It's so adorable!

Thirdly, how sweet to have a picture of your family at the proposal spot. I'd have to go to the parking lot of Black Angus in Oceanside, California.

Fourthly, Sedoni! (Or Sadoni, however she spells it.) How wonderful to see her! Is that her spouse?

Lastly, will pray for continued work on your house. Thank you for sharing some more yummy pictures of Iain!

Thank you! I do check back regularly to see Iain. :-) I almost hate to say it, but it looks like he's growing out of the newborn stage. I'm so glad to hear that God has answered our prayers about the bubble.

It's good to see Jenna, too!

YEAH!! I know you've been busy, but I have been eagerly awaiting an update. Iain is so adorable! I LOVE the pic of you and Jeremy and Iain at your proposal spot. What a great idea! I may have to steal that idea when our little one gets here. =)
Still praying for your home repairs!
