like father like son

I don't know if I could love these two any more!! They are so cute together. Many times its mommies and daughters who always match but not in our house its always Eben and Daddy who wear the same style.

When Micah got a new look this year with his European soccer hair and skinny jeans you can just guess who was next in line to have his hair cut just like daddies. They look some some cute together.

Not only do they like to look alike but they love being together and playing together. One of their favorite things to do is play the drums. We have been asking God for 2 years now for a drum kit for Micah and God provided with this great kit for Micah. Now they have been having lessons together...
and of course jamming out together. I am so happy that they have a great relationship and we are watching Eben grow in His character and becoming a little man. However I wouldn't mind if the drum lesson wasn't at 7 AM in the morning!! hehehe...

Now that we have this drum kit Micah will be teaching drum lessons! Give us a call or drop us a comment if you would like to get some!

Our New Look

Hello readers and welcome to the new Peterson Adventure blog. Now there is no need to worry old time readers; we just got a makeover that we are LOVING!! Our sister in law Deja is a great web/blog designer and she has been helping us get a fresh new look on our blogs.

Some of you might be thinking to yourself. I love the new header and what great pictures they have down the side of the blog...but why on earth is the back ground a garden. Well here goes my explanation to that one. Besides the fact that when two people contribute to the blog its really hard to agree on what type of back ground to pick with such limited choice in the blog world. So after lots of picking and trying we decided on the garden for a couple of reasons.

1. We love having a garden in our back yard and some day we would both really love to have a hobby farm!!
2. We want to be a family who is producing spiritual fruit for God (I know this picture is a vegetable garden but you get the idea).
3. We are parents of 2 small children and right now we don't know how many more children God is going to bless us with so in some sense we are growing children for the Lord also.

Now that I have explained a little bit about the garden growing behind us lets move on!

So why a fresh new look you ask. Well everything needs a makeover every once in a while and for us as we have grown to a family of 4, been married 6 years and have had some great revelations with that we decided our new out look needed to be put to our blog to keep our family and friends up to date with what we are up to. So why Peterson adventure?? because thats what we know we are in for!

We love dancing around the with kids to the song The great adventure by Steven Curtis Chapman. The lyrics are so meaningful to our family right now and every time we listen to it we get really excited to see where God is going to take us, what adventures will we have?? What trails are we going to blaze?? And of course the promise that this is a life like no other...following our leader to the great unknown.

So join us on our adventure as a growing family seeking the Fathers heart on the Agape Road!!!

A walk in the Park

On Sunday afternoon we decided to head out to the park to enjoy the beautiful sunshine. We are loving that the weather is getting warmer and the MASSIVE amount of snow that we had (close to 11 ft) is almost all melted away.

Lady J has been getting use to this book as and loves running around in it with Daddy and Eben. Its also great that it becomes a stool she can just hang out in while the boys play on the play ground

Eben, Daddy and our friend Tyler had a great time playing at the play ground. They were pretending it was a rock ship (of course) heading for some wheres...I was lost in all the boy lingo.

I guess this was the tunnel of safety for the take off! heheh

Finally we got Lady J out of the pack back and into a swing for the first time. Eben had so much fun pushing her back and forth. He has been waiting all winter to be the BIG brother and push Jaelyn. You see we have a jolly jumper hanging from our ceiling in the living room and he Loves to push it around...of course this is not allowed cause its just not safe so we have been telling him for the past month that he can be the big brother and push her on the swings at the park. He has so much fun and so did she.

He also enjoyed a couple good under ducks from daddy before we headed for home!

March break

Last week was March break around here. Not that it really matters for our family cause our kids aren't in school but we had a lot of fun with people who were in school and had a little vacation. First my bestest friend Deanna showed up with gifts for everyone and got to see Jaelyn for the first time in months. It was great having her here for a little visit! Jaelyn has grown so much since the first time we all meet her in the delivery room back in September.

Next Nannie and Papa showed up with our friend Sera! Sera got to stay with us for week back in January so the kids were very happy to see her again. Eben loves Sera. One of the first things he said to her when she walked in the house was "aw Sera I love your dress!" It was just too cute.

We had lots of fun at the park playing in the morning and then that afternoon we took the kids bowling.

It was Eben's first time at the bowling ally and he really enjoyed it and did super well (as you can tell from the picture this ball is almost dead on the center pin). At the end of the game Papa had the highest score but Eben was up there with a 61!!

Jaelyn even got in on the action!
Right now Micah is working on a putting together a sliding video but once that is done maybe we will get a bowling video so you can see how much fun we had!
