If you have visited here before, you can probably see that I have changed the name of the blog again. I started blogging at 4URuthie to tell the story of our journey to adopt our 1st daughter. I changed it to Mountains for Maggie when we were praying for God to move mountains on behalf of our 2nd daughter. Well now it is no longer just Ruthie’s or Maggie’s stories. It is now our family's story, and the stories of those we share life with, as we Conquer Mountains together. Both ConqueringMountains.net and 4URuthie.blogspot will lead here.

Making Memories While We Wait

In order to help pass the waiting time and make it count, Trent and I are trying to come up with ways to create family memories for the boys.  This weekend we drove to Dallas and went to Six Flags. It was a great trip as everyone was avoiding public places due to swine flu and so we got to walk right up to all the rides.  Here are a few pics from our day.

This all of us after a water ride.  The boys were mad at us because they got more wet than they expected.  Don't you love what Trent did to Sam's hair?

This is the boys with our first "adopted" daughter.  We "adopted" Lauren (Ya Ya) as a college student and we love her like one of the family.  She lives in Dallas now :(

My dare devil.  

Sam was frustrated when he couldn't ride the roller coasters because he is not 42 inches yet.  He kept telling the workers, "but I am 4 years old now".  He turned 4 a few weeks ago and that was supposed to make him a big boy I guess. 

Sam said his favorite part of the whole trip was the popsicle. Can you see why we don't get those at home?

What a nice day out and what a great way to make memories!! Your boys are such little cuties! I LOVE boys because they are so much and so lovable!! I wonder what they will think to precious little Ruthie!! They are going to be smitten.

I think you may be on to some thing! Looks like you had a lot of fun. Making memories is a great way to pass the time.

I'm wondering how I'm going to pass the time once September rolls around! :(
