Well, Seth was in his element at the Florida State Fair. After watching the Aligator Show, we took advantage of a photo op--what the heck, let's throw in the whole gang! Seth got to hold the albino baby gator from Louisiana. This is the second one that Seth has seen, but the first one that he has held! Just look at that face :) Unfortunately, the photographer was in it more for the money than a good photo, but the priceless part was captured, and that is all that counts!
We had a really good time while we were there. The bear show was a lot of fun. The exhibits were good. But best of all, we got to spend q-time with the boys!

Every year we celebrate her birthday by sending up balloons or writing a letter or simply having cake. This year, she gets a spot on my blog.
Kelsilyn, Zayn and Seth with Layci at her grave.
(Bren joined our family later)
I was very upset that they put the hands upside down at first, but now, I know that she is helping me through life.
We had this poem inscribed on the back of her headstone:
Little hands, held in mine.
Sweet tender touch, how brief the time.
Thy gift of love is given me,
to let these hands return to Thee.
Dear Savior, hear my heartfelt prayer.
Bless them with Thy watchful care.
Her little hands, until the time.
They once again are held in mine.
Happy Birthday sweet angel!
We love you ~ forever
