Spent Memorial Day on the lake today with the fam. Still felt as though we were missing someone, and it probably always will... but it was good to spend the day together boating, tubing, and just playing. Addie LOVES being outside, next to the water. She plays so well on her own when she's outside. Eli was perfect-- didn't care for the life jacket at first (what kid does!?), but once the boat started up, he was flailing his limbs with excitement :) A fun day!

We've been spending some quality time with Uncle Jeff now that he's home for a few weeks. Yesterday was Como Zoo, but we spent the most time on the rides. My little daredevil!!

This was the peaceful 5 minutes of the day... otherwise, it's been quite the opposite! Both kids have colds. Elias is teething. I'm ready to go back to work ;) AHHHHHHHHHHH!!

We had a terrific Mother's Day with the Sorbel clan yesterday! Lunch and then the waterpark at the Holiday Inn across the street. It was fun to just be together and play!
After a whirlwind of a few weeks, we are going to get back into a routine again. Brandt went back to work today. On my agenda today... laundry, laundry, and more laundry :)

Yesterday we did a lot of explaining to Addie about what was going on with Papa after he passed away. This was my conversation with her...
"Addie, Papa died this morning, but now he gets to live in heaven."
"Hey! Heaven is where Jesus lives!"
"Yes, Addie."
"Hey! Papa is going to see Jesus today!"
"Yes, Addie."
"Yeah! I LOVE Jesus!"

So in the midst of frustration, sadness, confusion, and disbelief, from the mouth of a 2-year-old, I am reminded that Dale is dancing in heaven with Jesus.
We will miss you, Papa :)
