Bennett Enjoys Fun in the Sun!

The soothing sounds of the ocean should be all too familiar to our little Bennett seeing as though I spent most of my pregnancy in sunny San Diego. Bless his heart, we upped and moved about a month before he arrived. No fair, I know! This past weekend Fletcher, Bennett and I decided to head south and check out the white sands of Florida. Still a little too cool for a true beach day, but that didn't stop us from heading out on the boat, lunching overlooking the water, and enjoying a few cocktails at sunset (Bennett skipped out on the cocktails). :) It was gorgeous and just what we needed. Fletcher showed us his old stomping grounds of where he endured flight school in Pensacola and Milton along with the old hot spots. Bennett is such a good little traveler. I know he won't remember his day at the Naval Aviation Museum or checking out the helos his daddy trained in, but we've got the pictures to show him.

Happy Easter!

It's amazing! Having a child really makes holidays take on a whole new meaning. Waking up Easter morning and heading to church to celebrate the death and resurrection of our Lord makes me take note of just how blessed I am. I have a wonderful husband and beautiful son. We're all healthy and are surrounded by family and friends. Life is good. Fletcher, Bennett and I spent this Easter in Nashville with Fletcher's family. This time a year ago, I was in San Diego with my mother, Fletcher had just deployed for the third time to Iraq.....and we were about to find out the greatest news to date....that we were expecting! Wow! What a difference a year makes. Pretty amazing.

Bennett Meets the Easter Bunny!

Bennett met the Easter Bunny this past week and can I just tell you what a joy it is to see his face light up. This Easter Bunny just happened to be a giant bunny. Bennett looked tiny next to it. Mrs. Youngblood was thoughtful enough to send Bennett a darling little bunny bubble precious! I hope the Easter Bunny will still come see me!
