5 Reasons I Smile

The ultimate goal of this blog is to spread awareness and show how beautiful life can be. We have four amazing daughters. Our youngest was born with Down syndrome. If just one person stops here and leaves with a different, better perspective about Down syndrome, then it is worth it. Regardless, I have 5 Reasons to Smile!

Play Dates and Date Night!

Spring break is coming to an end, but we had a blast and enjoyed every minute of it! We went to the Zoo, the Discovery Museum, and my favorite park twice! The girls had sleep overs with grandparents, Diondray and I took Jaden on a "date" to see the Diary of a Wimpy Kid (which, by the way, entertained me) and Diondray SURPRISED me with a date night to see ALICIA KEYS! One thing about Diondray and I, we go on dates, lots of them-thank you mom! Also, for some other exciting news (drum roll please) Kamryn is standing. She loves to go from the ground to the standing position and she holds her stand for a good 10 seconds. It has been an awesome week! Now, not that I want to share all my computer skills, but I don't know how to type in between or next to my pictures or any other exciting way, so here they are:


  1. Woohoo! I love Alicia Keys! Wash she playing with Robin Thicke? That sounds like such a cool concert!

    Great pics of the kids!! Glad your week was a good one ;)

  2. Ahh, so good to read such an exciting post! So happy for you!!

  3. Great pics! Go Kamryn! Love it. We're lucky that we get date nights, too. Love all your photos. To insert text between photos, just move the mouse to the bottom right of a photo and click "enter" to put the cursor under the photo. It's pretty easy... you can do it :-)

  4. Go, Kamryn!!! And so glad you had a great date night!!!

  5. Sheree, the opening act was Melanie Fiona, we had never heard of her. The venue was so beautiful, it was outside. In the photo of the stage you can see the mountain in the background.

    Monica, Thank you! You know, I thought I tried that, but more than likely the cursor was not exactly at the bottom right of the photo. You know computers have never been my thing :)....and all my work is on the computer - I work from home most of the time!

  6. thank you for the comment on my blog! And thanks for checking it out. Glad you enjoyed it. And I look forward to checking out your family and seeing how much we have in common!!

  7. WTG, Kamryn!

    And WTG, D, for such and amazing surprise!
