The Cafe deck

 The weather was beautiful. We had the awning out to keep the sun off of the boys. This high chair was donated to us. It has always been kept outside even by the previous family. So the weather has stained it. But believe me Isaiah cleaned this thoroughly with scrubbing bubbles. 

I would have helped but I broke my foot on Saturday.

Moses has transitioning anxiety. He still fears going outside, going into strange buildings etc. He does like to get in the van to drive. But he still is haunted by spending 7 years in one building on one floor.

 I love these benches. If you put them together they make 1 picnic table. But that size overwhelms and distracts the boys. When they sit this way you can swing the table over to make a bench, or a half table like this. The boys love the half table size. They can also watch the cars drive by here! On the other side of the street is a park that we watch festivities at too. The boys feel safer watching from a distance.

Last year they were eating on a little tikes picnic table. Look how much they've grown! Jacob's feet touch below! And in the bottom photo you can see Noah is built so "solid" now!

                                         Mosie being shy!

 Isaiah was trying to catch cars in each photo too - crazy kid!

 They really don't enjoy having photos taken, but they are good about it. Mercy throws tantrums and runs!!

 Julius and Pauly were done eating and playing in the play house on the deck.
To the right in the back you can see a beautiful gate my Son in Love made for each end of the deck so boys can't escape! Dan even checked them for wear and tear on our Family Friday dinner night last week. He is such a blessing!

My helpers Lysa in pink, Kitty in blue. All four helpers (Isaiah & Faith too!) help the boys with hearts filled with LOVE! 
The boys and Mercy motivate the best in all of us.
God is good!


  1. Sophia also doesn't like to go to new places. Even after two years she still just wants to be here in the house or on the porch. Tell you son I love the pictures he takes.

  2. Thank You Sharon! Isaiah appreciates your kind words! (((HUG)))

  3. What a lovely deck and place to eat at! I love to eat outside. And...YOU BROKE YOUR FOOT!!! Bless your heart! Our job is so hard as it is at times. I will be praying hard for your foot to heal quickly, with out pain and properly. Big hug from me here and much love!

  4. Oh, I'm so sorry to hear about your foot! I hope you are no longer in pain and it is healing well.

    1. Thank You!! (((HUG))) 4 1/2 weeks of healing left. It does hurt. Have to be so careful!

  5. It's nice to catch up with your family. Hope you are feeling better soon Elizabeth. :)
