As you are probably getting used to seeing on Tuesdays now, I'm hosting with Natalie, Beth Ann, Mallorie, Jordan, Allie to share the blessings God has placed in our paths during the week.
My main blessing this week was a weekend away with my two lovelies!!
Family time is so important to me and I absolutely treasure our time away from the hustle and bustle around us! We were originally supposed to go tent camping, but rain and storms in the forecast changed our plans. :) So we visited Cincinnati, Ohio instead and it was a perfect getaway!
On the agenda...
-aquarium (Adeline's second aquarium visit) for our little "ish" lover
I'd say we checked them all (plus some) off the list!
Adeline's fave at the aquarium was definitely the "tuh-tles". The huge sea turtle caught her attention and she was begging for "moh tuh-tles" the entire rest of the time. She also got very brave and pet a starfish underwater! Another fave were the walkways over the water where she could see the "ish" swimming under!

|scoping out the clearance...that's my girl! ;)|
|Barney "choo-choo" was the perfect treat for being a good shopper!|
|hotel silliness before we left|
|Daddy and Adeline were pretty smitten with their first trip to Ikea!|

Justin and I both grew up in families where our parents made "family time" a priority. And we grew up wanting to spend time with our family. As Adeline grows up, we want her to know the excitement and joy of spending time together as a family. We want her to remember that we always carved away time to devote to "just us time". Looking back...I know we will only wish we had done even more of it! What a treasure this time is!
What blessings has God placed in your path this past week? We would love to have you join us!
