Summer Fun and a Surgery Date

Picnik collage2

After removing a multitude of spider webs, leaves and dirt, the girls enjoyed an afternoon playing in the water table out on our deck.

How I love these easy, carefree, warm summer days...

Zoe looks menacing in this photo, like she is truly enjoying drowning her Barbie!

Lilah's surgery has been pushed up to June 23rd. We are much happier with this new date. The sooner the better. She will be in hospital for one night, the surgery will last for 2 1/2 hours. She will have many many many stitches across her cheek and face. But it will be worth it in the long run and we are thankful she doesn't have to go through the summer with the tissue expander in her cheek.

So looking forward to many more warm and carefree days!

That is awesome news! We will be praying that things will go smoothly and that Lilah will heal quickly!
PS: You must be having MUCH warmer weather than we are...it is cold and windy here, so much so that this morning while mowing I wore a hoody with hood tightly tied and a jacket. :(

Great news to hear and yes, it definitely must be warmer there than over here. Air is very cool -- sun is nice and warm out of the wind but otherwise a jacket is necessary.

Our girls have not only been playing in the sand/water table, but have also been splashing in the pool. It's HOT here! So happy for Lilah's surgery date getting bumped up. Will be thinking of her and praying. :)

They look like they are having fun! Bathing suits outside seems surreal as we were wearing toques for our walk this morning! I hope the wind blows your weather southeast...in our direction!

Wonderful to hear that Lilah's surgery is going to be sooner than later! She will definitely be in our thoughts and prayers.

I am SO happy that you have a surgery date. I will be thinking and praying for you and Lilah on the days leading up and and after the surgery. I am happy that Lilah will be able to move onto the next stage in her process.

I'm so glad to hear about Lilah's new surgery date! It'll give her lots of time to heal before school and give you more peace of mind throughout the summer.

Lovely to hear the date has been moved up! Better for everyone, especially miss Lilah. Those pics can't be from yesterday - so cold (and I know b/c I was out all day at the church garage sale eek!) Hoping that weather comes back soon to stay for a long while. We have the same table and Ava loves it.

How wonderful for Lilah that her surgery has been moved up. I can't believe how big the girls are - and I love that activity table!!

Super news on the surgery date! So glad she will have a good part of it over her for the summer, so she can start healing. I'll be praying for her.

Those girlies are having much fun at the water table, don;t know about your girls, but Lilah could spend ALL DAY in water!
