He's a Travelling Boy

I hate to admit it, but our sweet baby, Daniel, isn't so little anymore. He's growing by what seems like the second and is FINALLY at the age where we can take him places... BIG PLACES. With that in mind, we headed out on what was Daniel's very first trip.

We went for our first time to the Indianapolis Youth Weekend hosted by the Indianapolis and surrounding city churches. It was a blast! We were able to see people we hadn't seen in years, while others we met for the first time. It was a blessing to be a part of. 3 were saved and 2 told of being saved, and even with all the singing and shouting, Daniel was AMAZING! He slept the whole way there, and even throughout the long church services, he was quiet and behaved like a big kid. It was impressive!

We headed home on Sunday afternoon and decided to head over to the Creation Museum just outside of Cinncinati (if you need a wholesome or biblical family trip to take, this is it - stay at the Microtel in Florence, KY, for lowest rates). You wouldn't believe it if I told you, but Daniel was AWESOME. He has gotten to the age where he looks and focuses on EVERYTHING. He laughs and coos at anything he sees. He really enjoyed the moving dinosaurs, colorful screens, and the planetarium. Here are a few pictures from Daniel's first road trip...

Not scared of anything, not even the dinosaurs

A sweet reminder of what a blessing sweet Daniel is

Daniel loves God's DINO-mite creations!

SO, this is a side note, but Daniel has learned how to actually "play" and hold onto some of his toys. He made a new friend on this trip; his name is Rattling 'Raffe:
