The Family Tree of Hoses
We saw a firetruck parked in front of our grocery store, (firefighters eat too I guess) so I thought Ruby would be totally excited to see one in real life! Apparently boys and girls are different. Ruby would not even look at this firetruck up close and was totally freaked out by the firefighter (in causal blue pants & shirt) until he asked her if she wanted to see the hoses. She cast her glance toward him and he said, "We have a baby hose, a mama hose, a daddy hose and a grandpa hose. Wanna see 'em?" Her eyes lit up and a grin spread across her face. She looked at me and said, "they have a BABY hose!?!" It was too cute. Though in the end, (and this will come to no surprise to her grandparents) her favorite one was the Grandpa Hose. She has a special place in her heart for her Grandpas.
Created to share news with family and friends through difficult pregnancies, countless diagnoses, a move across the country and the growth of our family from two to six, this blog has become a chronicle of God's faithfulness to our family. We are humbled by your friendship and prayer support throughout the journey, and are blessed to have such faithful companions all over the world.
