Welcome To The Gardens

We introduced Gwyneth to the Duke Gardens on Wednesday evening...such a perfect day to be outside, and we're thankful to have had enough time to enjoy it after the long clinic day.

I especially love your family pic. Everyone together.
Perfect.

I especially like Tricia's hair... which may sound strange but I like it. Maybe its because I know whe is a warrior and has conquered. The hair is growing back. Ü

Gorgeous shots, and wow is Gwyneth every GROWING, look at her up on her feet!!!! Love Tricia with short hair and freckles.

Sarah said...

her spunky little personality is really starting to shine through, I love it!

I also love Trisha's short hair. Both she & my friend who just finished chemo (for Hodgkins') look awesome with the supershort hair.

Oh I love that last picture! It's amazing to think of how far you guys have come in a year. God has been so faithful! I'm praying that he'll continue to pour out his blessings on your family! Thanks for being a continual witness for the LORD!

Wonderful pictures! I spent many spring Sunday afternoons at Duke Gardens when I was a student there. It is truly a beautiful place, and you have a beautiful family.

Both of your girls are getting more beautiful every day.

Me and my Gurl said...

What beautiful and memorable photos you guys. Its good to see the family photos and the one of Gwenyth standing on the bridge looking out was adorable.

I wish I had more photos of my children and myself when they were younger.

Glad you enjoyed some of God's Beautiful Glory today.

I'm glad to hear Tricia is fever free. I am signing off and going to bed myself with a 3 day migraine.

God Bless

Clair said...

I love the little bow in Gwyneth's hair.
I love Tricia's hair! Hope she is going to keep that style, it suits her.

Magoon Family said...

Look at her standing like a big girl!!!!!

Emily said...

These are beautiful pictures! You can even see Gwyneth's teeth in a few of them. Thanks for posting these! :)

Tammy C said...

Gwyneth is sporting the Pepples look very well!Cute pictures.

Danine said...

what a wonderful family outing and great family pictures! Loving too that everyone's hair is getting sooo long!

Can I say though that GR might come back someday and really dislike the fact of the "DQ" ontop of her head (my mom did that to me for years and to this day I still pick on her for it...hence we call it the "DQ" style, like the curl on the Dairy Queen ice cream cones, lol)

Missy said...

Tricia looks hot!! She's getting her Halle Berry on and her face just looks beautiful!

Great pics of the gardens and our whole family just melted at the video off Gwyneth babbling at the door!

Kim M said...

My how your lives have changed! The garden pictures have always been beautiful, but how much more with your little family of 3 intact and the most healthy they've been in the past year! Praise God!

Kirsten said...

I LOVE the little buffy pony tail! Glad to hear Trisha is feeling better!

Love the pictures. Glad Tricia is feeling better. Your pictures bring me hope for spring. :) It will be so nice to be able to go outside with shorts on. :)

What a beautiful family. Tricia looks great with short hair!

Mary said...

What great pictures. I love the last one of the three of you together. Such an awesome family you all are.

MadMaude53 said...

Wow... what a gorgeous day! Tricia looks soooo cute without the wig. I see that there are no curls there. I don't know if you knew this, but there were a total of 3 nurses in my clinic who had breast cancer when I did..I was the first, then the other two were diagnosed 6 and 9 months after me.. Two of us got curly hair when it grew back. Mine was curly before, though. The third got her straight hair back. But hey.. it's HAIR~~~

Just Courtney said...

Such wonderful pictures!! One of the things we loved the most about NC was how beautiful it was. If it wasn't for the humidity, we'd be living there now!

The Mazza Munchkins said...

I am sure everyone has already said it...but I LOVE the little pony tail.

Too Cute.

Emily said...

Those little toes are too cute and that ponytail absolutely rocks! Looks like a fabulous day!

Betsy McK said...

Oh my goodness, I love the one of her standing! How stinkin' cute is she?

amys_a_hoot said...

Hi guys. I know Tricia may like long hair most girls do but I like her hair short like it is right now I think it looks good on her. And, I am glad you guys enjoyed the gardens at Duke.

Kimmybeth said...

Your family is beautiful! I love the last picture of the 3 of you. I'm still so happy that things have turned out for you all the way they have.
