Father's Day and a Funny Quote I Found Today

On Father's Day we went to the zoo. 

Just look at this wild animal:

 He really wanted his picture taken that day.

It was hot, but we had fun. 

Thank you, Jesus, for our blessings.

Now, to completely switch gears, it is funny how God works.  I was looking for something this morning and I happened to find Aiden's birth story.  Owen asked if I had a birth story for him.  I looked it up.  Here is the quote I found:  "Shawn says we might adopt in 4-5 years, earlier if I can convince him ." 

Owen was born in 2005.   We started the adoption process 5 1/2 years after Shawn made this comment.  I didn't try to convince him of the adopting earlier, but when it came time to adopt, there was no waiting on my part.  I jumped in with both feet.

God was at work in Shawn's and my heart way back then.  I had completely forgotten about even talking about it that early on.  We had talked about it again in 2008, but decided to get pregnant instead.

God's plans, God's timing.

I guess I should also add that today is our 14th anniversary.  Another one of God's blessings.

Thank you God!
