The Beauty of Wyoming

We have fallen in love with Wyoming.

Yes even all the snow. ;o)

It was crazy warm even when it was so terribly cold. The feel is so very different from here on the East Coast. We came home to 40 degree weather and are still trying to figure out how it felt colder at 40 here than it did at 20 there.

Here are just some random pics we took while out and about.
The first one however is one that has affectionately been called the "Hendergaines".

D having the time of his life! ;o)
E trying to get snow out of his gloves.
D and I had a chance to go out just the 2 of us and speed through the amazing terrain. What beauty God has created!!! We stopped every once in a while to take some pics.

My new computer wallpaper.

When you step off the trail the snow gets a little deep ;o)

The trip was amazing.

Erin and I did end up taking a trip into Salt Lake City because baby Noah was having issues with his feeding tube. It was a nice just girls trip. ;o) I got to travel through Wyoming, Idaho, and Utah all in the span of about 3 hours. It was all just gorgeous! We saw deer and even had 2 bald eagles fly over the van. We ordered in TGI Friday's and had a slumber party.

Noah's issue seemed to be an 'easy' temporary thing so we were only gone about 24 hours. We found out the day we left to come home that it wasn't such an 'easy' fix after all. :o( He needs prayer and to catch a serious break. He's still a smiley sweet boy though...even through all the mess he's had to deal with.

He sure is in the right place and with the right momma to help him over come all of his challenges. He's so very sweet and loving. He's got a long road, but he's got the right support! God knew what He was doing.

D stayed back with all the other kids. He had a blast actually. All the kids lived, ate, and slept...and we have been invited back so I think all went well. Josh was working but of course came home to help with meals and bed time. He's a great dad!

I also got a chance to meet some of Erin's friends. Including Abbey... the very very cool chic who arranged for me to call Erin on her birthday as a surprise. So much fun to be able to hug people you think are so great!!

Well that concludes the recap of our trip.

It was truly a blessing to be able to spend the holiday with them all. We can't wait to get back out there ...maybe this summer. See what it looks like under all that white stuff. The boys have asked at least 50 times when we are going back.

Thank you Henderson's for all your love and for putting up with us for a week. We love you and miss you huge!

This is all so perfect for you guys but even the kids are so happy. I noticed little E and Solomon sitting there together right away. So awesome you had some girl time together. Still praying for little precious Noah. He is a true beautiful miracle baby. The country looks beautiful. Maybe you were so warm even it was colder there because you were so happy.
