We have been extremely busy this weekend. On Saturday we went to the Rowan Tree Butterfly Release in the morning. The ceremony was awesome and so many babies were remebered!! We let butterflies go and watched them fly around while the kids played. After that, we went to a awesome breakfast at the Pinery. We had really good food!! Then in the afternoon, we went swimming. Swimming is becoming a weekly event and Carson LOVES the water!!

Today we went to Lily's third birthday party. A bunch of animals were there for Carson and all the kids to pet and play with. We had a Llama, Alpaca, goat, bunnies, chickens, horse, ducks and he got to ride the horse. The kids loved all the animals. We had a great time and now Carson is down for his afternoon nap. We are going to hang out the rest of the day and go on a walk when Brian gets home.

First time swimming!

We took Carson swimming today and he loved it. He loves the bath so I knew that it would be no problem. It was very hot so we didn't stay very long, but it still made him very tired!! We will definitely be going back very soon!

Membership Campaign

The following is from a friend of mine's blog- Corinne. She is a awesome person and friend. I can't tell you how much she has helped me through the loss of Grace and is always there to listen to me when I have a hard day. Corinne started a non-profit in honor of her daughter Rowan here in Colorado. She not only helps those here but also around the world. Please help join the campaign and help support Rowan Tree. We are having a Butterfly Release on June 27th and do numerous other events throughout the year! Please join!!

Hi everyone,

Please help us raise awareness for the work we are doing at Rowan Tree Foundation. We are working hard to reach 1,000 members on facebook, and can do it with your help.

Child death happens every single day, all over the world. Given the magnitude of occurrences, you'd think there would be equal levels of support responses from the communities of the world. You'd think that all medical professionals from obstetrics to peds would have had training in compassionate care-giving for the circumstances where a child dies. The reality is that its the luck of the draw as far as how your medical team is able to support you in your grief.

Rowan Tree Foundation is an all volunteer organization that works to support families after the death of a child during pregnancy, or after they are born. Isolation accompanies this sort of loss, and parents and friends need to know there is a place they can go to be heard, to read, to connect, and most of all, to realize they are not alone.

We're working this summer to increase our reach around the globe, and one of the ways we are connecting to new folks is through facebook. Please join our cause, and if you do not use facebook, go to our website at and subscribe to our newsletter. (We do not send spam or share your info.)

Coming in July we are having a contest giveaway that you're going to want to be in on. So, join us, and help spread the word.

Thank you!

My potato boy!

Carson loves potatoes!! He eats them every night because he does so well. I always put some veggies with it but he is hilarious when he eats them. I love to watch him!!

I hate goodbyes

As everyone knows my mom left today. I hate it when she leaves. It just leaves me in the most depressed mood and I don't want to be bothered!! We had a awesome time and Carson loved it so much. Memaw Sheila was here and she left also and the house is very quiet! Carson got a bunch of clothes, a wagon and a horse to ride. He loves everything that he got and has played with all of it. I'm loving dressing him up everyday because he gets to wear something new. I cleaned out his closet and put all of his new clothes to hang up.

These are a few pictures of Carson from yesterday. He is making funny faces and is such a ham these days. The picture with Mickey and his Mickey shirt are for Uncle Byron and Aunt Misty!! They bought him the shirt and Mickey in Disneyworld when they were there last month.

Our dinner entertainment!

Carson was being so funny tonight! He ate a ton of greenbeans for dinner and I was so excited. He would scream and then I would scream back and he thought that was the funniest thing ever! Carson is having a blast with Mimi and Aunt Sheila!
