Haven meets Hannah

Haven met a new friend this past Sunday... a friend she will have for quite some time. We stopped by our friends Brian & Katie and introduced the two darlings to each other. Hannah, thanks for letting us stop by and visit and don't worry-there will be many more Sunday afternoon visits, berry cobbler chats, and Cardinals games in our future! Here is their photo shoot:

Haven's Easter photo shoot

If you notice Haven is wearing a different dress, you are right...she got to church, got fed, and then messed through her lovely Easter dress. Luckily, I had packed another dress for such a situation!

Spring Break 2010

This past week we spent in the glorious rays of Phoenix, AZ, visiting family & spending time outside. It was fabulous! From family meeting Haven to spending time outdoors, it was a memorable experience-I also have quite a "Good Friday" story...especially if you know my aunts, let me know next time you see me; I'd be happy to entertain!
Thanks again guys for hosting us...we had a grand time!

Haven was a great traveler on the plane-sleeping most of the time & making friends left & right with her laughter and smiles! Waiting for us in Mesa was Uncle Ells.

After arriving back in Phoenix, we anxiously awaited for "the aunts" to get done with work.

We loved the sunny patio!

We spent many moments in the afternoon sun & Haven loved Aunt Lo's excersaucer & her swimsuit.

We also took Haven to Phoenix Zoo one morning.
While Haven slept through most of it, Arlan and I loved it
Haven woke up just in time for the orangutan exhibit.

Here is Haven meeting the cousins, Kole [3] and Kadyn [9 months].
They are my cousin Kolette's boys and Haven was toughened up very quickly!

Kole kept saying, "but I want to play with Haven!"

We also spent substantial time shopping with Aunt Vonnie...man, does she know how & where to shop as we got some great deals!

A Doorneweerd tradition-coloring Easter eggs.

We also found time to go hiking a bit on a desert preserve near the Phoenix church.

If you are thinking Haven doesn't look real interested-you are right...she fell asleep!

Before church Good Friday services...it was quite the "Good Friday"!
