EK's Friend Party

For the past few months EK has really talked a lot about museums and really wanted to visit one. A wonderful Children's Museum opened in Greenville not too long ago and we decided that would be the perfect place to celebrate. She invited just a few friends and we all met at the museum last Friday. It was the perfect morning... all the kids and adults were completely involved with all the many exhibits. Just a few of EK's favorites were the grocery store, the wind area, the farm, and the water area... just the best way for kids to learn.

Funny story about EK's outfit... completely by chance that she had this cute ensemble to wear. Savannah came home Thursday night with this adorable shirt her boss had made for EK in the shop where Savannah works. As soon as I saw the fabric, I knew I had some and decided to make some boutique bottoms to match. I thought she looked pretty cute... thanks to Savannah and The Monogram Express!

This was probably the most special part of the museum to me... a heart that I could open and look at and think about ShayleeJoy. How wonderful that God allowed me that time to stand and think about His creation and a little girl far away in China waiting on her forever family. I already pray for the surgeons who will one day open her heart that very same way to make it well and she will be healed.

The big girls weren't big on the museum and zoo so they opted for a little window shopping. We all hooked up downtown Greenville for dinner and ice cream. I guess it's ok to say they all take my breath away when I see them together... I LOVE this pic!

These two are very much like twins although almost 7 years separate them.
