Hey everyone! We want you all to know that we have been thinking and praying hard about growing our little family. Recently, we have been home study approved which means that we are legally ready to adopt another child! We are so excited at the possibility and I can't help but wonder what our next adoption story will look like. We hope you will keep us in your minds and share our blog with everyone to help spread the word and help that next little spirit will make his/her way here. Thanks for all your love and support!

August has come and gone. Our house is getting so close! It's been fun watching it go up and I'm crossing my fingers we picked good options, haha. I feel like it's a surprise at this point since I can't remember half the things we chose. But its looking great and we are getting closer!
Matt Townsend Date Night with Matt's parents, mine, and my sisters (plus husbands). Can't beat a free date night that offers free Cold Stone and lots of laughs!
|Taking a break with dad. All this house building is hard work!|
|Grayson insists on walking Bella these days! It always turns out to be the other way around, but good thing she's the best dog around!|
|Watching t.v. together :) Bella is the most patient, loving dog!|
|Every morning after breakfast, we walk over to see the trains and let Bella run wild. Grayson loves the "choo-choo"!|
|Riding bike with cousin Alivia!|
Day at the Zoo:
|Gray's first time at the zoo was a hit! He ran around like a crazy guy, saying "hello" to everyone and asking all the kids "did you see it?!" Needless to say, I left buying a year pass :)|
|Grayson loves the dinosaurs at the zoo- he RAWRS back at them and tries hard to be brave, haha|
|My fav is always the polar bears. I love that they still have the same lion drinking fountain that i drank out of as a kid!|
|Spent the day at the Homestead with family!|
|Saying "cheeeese!" in front of the goats, haha|
|He seriously loved feeding the goats. Who knew they liked dog biscuits and pretzels!?|
|Marching back and forth over the crater. Laying down on his belly at the top to holler "hello!" to the swimmers below.|
|Gray LOVES his aunt Teri! She's the best.|
Some other exciting news... I officially graduated with my BSN! I was debating whether to walk since I had finished my classes a few months ago, but I'm so glad I did. All that hard work, time and stress really felt like it paid off. It was a great ceremony and reminded me that I can do anything! A small part of me thinks I will eventually go back for more one day.. shhh! don't tell Matt ;)
|I had the best cheerleaders- so thankful for all their support!|
|I love this pic. Grayson LOVES helicopters (go figure) and especially loves remote helicopters. I've never seen him so happy when he has the controls :) Love these two.|
