Downtown Virginia Beach has just about everything that you could want to do.  Even in the winter it has some amazing things to do.  It was a street of lights that you can drive through, which we did!  Also it has a cute little ice rink there.  Kennedy has been talking about going for a while now and we finally at enough time (and will power) to take them.  

You know how sometimes taking kids to "fun" things ends up just being a lot of work for mom and dad so that the kids can have a few minutes of fun?  Well this picture shows us having fun.  We did have a good time and it wasn't THAT much work.  

I keep on having these really precious moments when it dawns on me how lucky I am.  I was holding Hayden and watching Linz push around the kids.  It was like I was in one of those cheesy christmas movies that they always play on ABC family.  It was one of those moments when everything was just right.  I think God gives me (us) those whisperings because later without them parenting would be really, really hard.  It are those small moments that keep me going as a parent.  They urge me to keep going, keep trying and keep improving.  Those moments when I realize how much love I have to give, urges me to love even more.  Those moments invite me to be more patient, kind and full of love.
