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.

Sunday Snapshot- Happy Birthday Jack

This weekend was the birthday of my favorite  8  9 year old.

Just like last year, he didn't want a party but wanted to get away with the family instead. 

All 5 of us spent the day at Moody Gardens and then Jack and I spent the night.  

We went to dinner and he took a few happy birthday calls from family and friends.  It must be hard being that loved.

After dinner we cruised over to The Strand and had ice cream at La Kings.  

His request was to sit in bed and watch the Weather Channel.  A little Storm Stories and we were in birthday heaven.

We wrapped up the experience with a trip to the Rainforest Pyramid.

I love that kid and I love that when given the choice, he chooses time with his family over presents and parties.
