In less than three days...

We will be on an airplane ride (or rather 3 consecutive airplane rides) en route to Nairobi, Kenya. We are so excited! Well, not about the long flight (over a day of travel) or about missing our family and friends; However, we are really excited for this adventure. We are excited for getting to see just how big God is and having our hearts be reawakened to how deeply he loves the people of Africa. We are excited to introduce our kids to the people, the new sights, the smells. We are excited to hug little ones who don't have people to hug them, and to visit churches who are doing amazing things in dire places. So, in short we are excited! We are also nervous. Nervous about what to expect, nervous about keeping a two year old boy sitting still for so long in a confined space, nervous about being away from home for so long. But, still the excitement overrides the fears. And, I have had us packed way in advance, so I am just ready to get going!

We will have internet access, so hopefully I will be able to update the blog regularly and skype occasionally. I would love to hear from you while we are gone, so please feel free to send me an email (or 10!) And, please keep us in your prayers!

In the meantime, here are a few pictures of our recent antics...

The Princess and the Frog Pajama screening party at my adorable friend, Molly's. You should have seen the green cupcakes she made!

MOPS Spring Picnic Fun

St. Patrick's Day Treasure Hunt at my friend, Lesley's. She is ridiculously adorable for thinking this up. The kids loved following the clues until they found their chocolate gold coins!
