weddings, Gig Harbor, puzzles, lots of walking, Friends, and PUKE!

Yeah Megan was in town! She is one of our favorite humans in the world.
Mandolyn threw her a surprise wedding shower at a winery. . more just a congrats party! It was so much fun.

You can not stop this little girl. She is so tiny but FAST! She is practically running!

Here is cute Shauna pregnant! Heidi and I threw her and baby Carter a shower. Isn't she just darling!
Heidi and Catherine at the shower. You both are so gorgeous.

On the GO!

My boys have done more puzzles this summer than ever. Puzzles are their new passion. They are up to 300 pieces now and so proud!
I had to show you a picture of this fabulous wedding Aaron sang at. The colors and flowers were my favorite I have ever seen. The colors were yellow, gray, and black and the flowers were white orchids! It was stunning.
Trip to Gig Harbor. Avery taught Keagan how to boogie board.
The boys searched for crabs for 7 hours straight. Oh to live on the water. . it was amazing!

Kids in the warm shower after a long day on the beach!

Life has been crazy! We have had friends in town and then we ALL got sick. Everyone puking the same day. Dad came home from work and emptied puke buckets for the entire day. I still do not feel back to normal. I can't remember the last time I had the flu. . . but it is miserable! And Moms don't really get sick days. Trying to take care of sick kiddos and being sick yourself was NOT FUN!

Yeah Darcy! I'm so glad you're back! Looks like you have been v-e-r-y busy....
We all got the stomach flu 2 years right after another for 5 days straight. I think I'm scarred for life after that so I know just how you feel.
hope to see you this weekend!

We've been missin' your blog updates & loved reaidng about the happenings in the McMurray fam - though sorry to hear about the flu!Wow, what a whirlwind it sounds like it's been for you guys. I am so sorry you all have been sick; I can sympathize with how that feels to be sick yourself & trying to take care of sick little ones at the same time. All I can say is, there has to be GRACE - how else do we get through those times of motherhood?!!! We are praying for you and hope you feel better soon. Giant hugs from us four.

I stumbled on your blog from the keyword "Gig Harbor." Hope you don't mind me reading, but I was really fascinated by your adoption story. My wife and I just had our first, but health complications with my wife mean we'll probably choose to adopt for a 2nd. We're a ways off, but are looking at options now. It was fun reading through your story a bit. Thanks.

It is so much fun to keep up with your family!!! Heather and family had flu last week - bad stuff.
Darc, can you get me the name of the baby store where the personalized clothes/blanket came from at your shower?

The gFamily said...

WOW, you have been busy! It is seriously no fun to be sick as a mom and still have to take care of sick kids! We take being healthy for granted way too often, don't we!! I hope you are all better by now!!
