This is the amazing story of our micro preemie, John Craig. He was born on November 30, 2005 at 24 weeks and 5 days gestation. He weighed 1 pound 8 ounces and was 12 inches long. John is a true miracle and an inspiration to all that meet him!
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future.
Jeremiah 29.11

Summer Vaca

Believe it or not, we were all packed, kids loaded up in the car and on the road, en route by 6:30am.  I guess there are perks for early rising kids!


 What's a road trip without a barf cup (uggggg) and some junk food????



 We made it to San Diego in six hours with only two stops.....one stop being the side of the road for a potty break for John:)  He thought that was pretty funny.

When we got to the hotel we unloaded, checked out the view and headed out to Seaport Village!


It took an entire minute for Hopie to fall asleep.  We continued on to Seaport Village and enjoyed chocolate chip cookies (John) and margaritas (Mommy, Daddy and Grammy!)  Then John did some shopping in the stores.....he had earned a special treat from us.  He choose a dolphin sword, a hamster stuffed animal and picked out a Hello Kitty stuffed animal for his sister.  He said, "Hopie will LOVE this!"  Made my heart so happy. 




Hopie woke all smiles!!!!  And then raced off with cousin Ashley to ride the Carousel.




It was a PERFECT first day!!!
