Visit at the the Farmer's Market

Every Friday from 4pm-8pm Trader's Point Creamery has an Organic Farmer's Market. We found it a perfect evening program for our family. The kids love animals. So we took a little outing there. We had our dinner packed with us and we visited the farm and the animals. They were all so free...and loved it of course. Hanna melted down when the cow "greeted her" loud. The boys loved "dancing" on the wooden stage. Lili picked the freshly planted flowers from the pots on the deck. (We quickly stuck them back).
Hanna, Tomi and mommy went around the whole building to see the chicks, tractors and more cows. Daddy made sure the the rest of them had their dinner.
It was such a fun and exhausting evening. Way to start the weekend or end the week?!

Goodbye Miss Renee

This month we said goodbye to our PT who was with us for about 2 years. Since mid May we started with Miss Kim. Now she is in charge of working Mate hard, which she does and we like that very much.
We love Miss Renee and miss her greatly. Here are some fun memories with her in a collage. Of course it's impossible to put every precious moment in a mix but we cherish them in our heart and mind. Thank you so much all you have done for us! We stay in touch.

Love the Manleys

Happy Mother's Day Grandma!

Grandmas Wings
by Ricky R. Hernandez
Grandma I wonder
where you keep your wings.
Are they hung in your closet
with the rest of your things?
Do you put Posted by Picasathem away
and just use them at night
or give them to Rosie
to polish up bright.
I know you have wings,
for this must be true,
'cause God always gives
them to angels like you.
We love you Grandma Manley!
Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day!

"Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For the measure you use, it will be measured to you."
-Luke 6:38

"Her children stand and bless her."- Proverbs 31:28

The top verse is one of our most favorite Bible verses because it is so true in our life. Honestly this is how we feel every day (for the most part).
I feel very blessed because the Lord blesses me through our kiddos every day. If you would ask me is it more work than joy? I can firmly say it's more joy however we work hard. We consider our children as precious investments. I had one of the most beautiful gifts for Mother's day. A fun handwritten card from David in the name of the children, a beautiful craft by the kids, Cliff and Debbie. On Friday we all went to Zionsville and had such fun playing and having pic-nic at the playground.
My wish for today was to spend quality time with each one of them.
I am so thankful for this encouraging day, Mother's Day.

Happy Birthday Grandpa Manley!

April 29th It's Manley Papa's Birthday. We thought we will surprise him and everybody else on that day. So after the quints' afternoon nap we packed everyone into our Chevy bus and we were heading to Aunt Lisa's place where Granpa+Grandma and cousins gathered to celebrate grandpa's birthday.
It was such a pleasant spring evening. We all enjoyed the gentle breeze and the beautiful sunshine. It's so good to be outside, play ball on the grass, work on puzzles and enjoy cherry pie together.
Thank you Grandpa for making today a great celebration and gave us a reason to get together to see you!
We would like to enjoy you for a long time!
Dave+Manna and the five

The Girls' First Bridal Shower with Mommy

Early April we were invited to one of our cousins Bridget's Birdal Shower. I was happy and proud to take all three girls with me on this gorgeous spring Saturday.
We all had fun playing outside and enjoyed great company and yammy food.
You can see some of the best captured moments in the next slideshow.
