Happy 4th Birthday Surprise! update

SURPRISE! Since Emma's 4th birthday is Monday, I thought I would celebrate by giving the blog a little makeover. This is the surprise I told you about the other day. When I talked to the blog design queen, she said since I wanted to make so many changes we should just go full-blown with the makeover, so I agreed. We are still tweaking (did I spell that right?) just a tad, but I'm lovin' it so far. What do you think?

Hope you're having a great weekend! Today was just gorgeous out. Kelvin and I spent nearly the whole day together enjoying the water around us and the warm sunshine. We started out running/walking (much more of the latter for me) about 6 miles this morning to get some training in for the half marathon in a few weeks. I'm thinking Kelvin is going to have to trade me in for a new model soon. My hips hurt, my arms hurts, and my leg started hurting today! Good grief! I'm not that old. Afterward we grabbed some really yummy fish tacos at a very yummy cafe in Seabrook. We decided to take our time and drive around checking out the new construction going on since Hurricane Ike. There are some beautiful homes being built to replace the old ones. We also had our first crawfish of the season, some good conversation and good wine at a local wine tasting room, and checked out a boat for fun. I mean why not, huh? I love looking at model homes...why not model boats? Fun to dream. All I could think about was how well I could sleep with such a peaceful rocking motion.

I think tomorrow after church we're taking the kids to one of the parks we walked through today to play and have a picnic. The trails we were walking lead us to a butterfly garden. It was so neat that God provided a such a sweet reminder of Emma. I think we'll show the kids the garden too. I'm hoping the weather is just as nice again.

We finished the tweaking last night. I love the outcome! Did you notice the cool new headers? Yes, I said more than one. We have 4 rotating headers now. Three of them are some of my favorite pictures of Emma, and one is all four of our little darlings. Enjoy!

TODAY is Emma's 4th Birthday. We will celebrate by spending the day at Texas Medical Center passing out parking passes. Emma's Hugs has also pre-purchased 550 days of parking that we will present to the Social Services Department at M.D. Anderson Cancer Center to distribute. When the kiddos get home from school we are going to the cemetary to eat butterfly cupcakes (hope it stops raining).

Happy Birthday Em!
