I know you've seen the pictures from the fun bath time, but if you have a couple minutes you can watch the video and actually hear the happiness!

The Texas LePage's loaded up the car for Memorial Day weekend and drove north. A. Very. Long. Way. 694.3 miles to be exact. St. Louis, Missouri. The boys traveled very well. Thanks to portable DVD players, Nintendo DS's and Elmo! Oh, and fruit snacks and crackers. PaPaw was there. So was Gammie.And Aunt Jess too.
Yep. We had a good time. Life is great. Family is precious. God is so good to us all!

This is Lukas with his very first banana split.
This is obviously a very excited Lukas. Lukas earned one of those Free Dipped Cone cards from Dairy Queen last week. So in my moment of weakness the other day, I pulled into the drive through lane of our local Dairy Queen. As we are sitting there, Lukas says to me "Mamma, I want the three point four nine one." Confused, I said "what are you talking about?" He proceeds to point to the picture of the banana split. And below it is reads: $3.49. "Ahhhhh. So you don't want to use your coupon on this day, eh?" is my response. And as Lukas starts to talk about this picture of this banana split stating all the colors, how much ice cream there is...etc., my mind drifts far, far, far away. To a time long ago. A time when I could so easily be places upon my daddy's shoulders. He would set me up on those shoulders, take his hat off and let me brush his hair all the way downtown to Dairy Queen. I can still see the red benches that lined the front wall of the store where the walk-up order window was. This particular Dairy Queen had no inside seating. You either drive up or walk up. We walked. Every time. My dad would order one banana split and we'd sit on those benches and share our favorite treat together.

Logan was born February 12, 2008. So, as of today he is exactly 6 days shy of being 15 months old.
WOW. That's good for me. Math was never my subject.
Anyways, Lukas was 10 months old when he took his first steps. This means that Logan is taking his sweet time learning how to get around on his on two legs. Although, he is mighty good (and fast) at getting around on all fours. But this past week Logan has taken great strides (no pun intended) in learning how to walk on his own. It has brought huge smiles and laughs to the rest of his little family.
If this don't make ya smile and feel all warm and fuzzy on the inside, I just don't know if anything will!
See. You're smiling, aren't ya?
OK, well if you're not, you will be after watching this next short home video:
There is no greater testament to the passing of time than a growing child. Thank you Lord for the little children. They are all precious. Precious in His sight.
And pretty stinkin' precious in my sight too.

No test or temptation that comes your way is beyond the course of what others have had to face. All you need to remember is that God will never let you down; he'll never let you be pushed past your limit; he'll always be there to help you come through it. 1 Cor 10:13
