Birthday Weekend Recap!!

We have had one busy BIRTHDAY weekend!!! I have lots of pics to share so I am going to break the weekend up into several posts.

So here's how we spent our Friday...

On Friday we took Corban and Riley to Carowinds to celebrate Cor's 6th birthday! The boys had never been to Carowinds before and they were so... excited to go. The day started out with LOTS( and I mean LOTS- like flash flood warnings) of rain! We contemplated whether we should really go or not. After checking the weather numerous times, we decided to take the chance and headed on over to the park. I prayed the entire way there that the Lord would allow the rain to clear and bless us with nice weather! Would you believe that the second we pulled into the park the rain STOPPED!!!! It didn't rain another drop the rest of the day!
"Thank you Lord for caring about the little things and blessing us with such a wonderful day!"

It was a perfect day to be at Carowinds. Cool, partly cloudy, and no long lines!! We could ride the rides as many times as we wanted. Most of the time we didn't even have to get off in order ride again!
My mom and sister kept the babies so we could enjoy the day with the boys!!
What an AWESOME day we had!!!!

Sounds like a fabulous day for the big boys!! Days like these are so important when new babies arrive!!
I like it when the older siblings get some parent time just for themselves!! It makes them feel so special! I can see the joy in everyones faces!!!
And I am sure the babies were cuddled the whole day!!

Have a wonderful week!! And happy birthday to Corban from a stranger!! :)
