Soo sorry for the long absence from this blog!  For those of you who are friends with me on Facebook know that the last couple of weeks haven't been the best for our little family.  A couple of weeks ago, our church celebrated it's 10 year anniversary with a huge service including Natalie Grant and then a minor league baseball game afterwards.  Our kids were playing in the splash park before the game and having an absolute BLAST until little Zoe had a freak-ish accident.  She walked/fell on a metal access plate on the ground right next to the splash park that was in the hot sun and she was burned. It was AWFUL.  We had never experienced something so scary since becoming parents- Drew sprinted to the parking garage to get our car and we rushed her to the closest hospital (which just so happens to be the best burn center in the state).  She had 2nd degree burns on her hands, feet, and shins.  We would have done ANYTHING to have taken the pain away from her.  But she is such a trooper and the doctor says she is recovering well, although her wounds still don't look good to us or anyone that sees them (I will spare you the awful pictures).  She isn't in any pain anymore, which is a HUGE thing and she is back to her normal smiley and mischevious self.  But we have definitely been preoccupied the last couple of weeks with taking care of our little patient.  We had made plans a long time ago to go to the Children's Museum last weekend and kept them even though Zoe was still a little under the weather and bandaged up.  It was a great trip and she had a blast despite not being able to do everything.  All the bandages are gone now with the exception with one of her feet, so that's a big improvement.  Here are some pictures of us lately....

Evan graduated preschool!  Most of the kids in his class will go on to kindergarten next year, but he
still has another year of preschool because he has a late-August birthday.  Glad I get another year of
him at home with me!
Graduating preschool is kind of a big deal to a 4 year old :)

Trip to the zoo the day before her accident- such a happy little thing!

Evan got brave and decided to feed a giraffe!

She is a Daddy's girl for sure- and he kind of likes her too ;)

All bandaged up.  Poor thing.  But still smiling.  Amazing what morphine will do!

First bike ride of the season!

Children's Museum- designing a new HotWheels car in the Design Center...

Love this guy :)
The kids with Ma and Papa at the Children's Museum- Zoe is rocking the hot
pink bandages :)


The museum really tuckers a girl out! 

Hopefully I don't wait another 3 weeks to update again!!
