Happy 4th of July!

Our friends, Ari and Melissa Spiro, invited Mommy, Daddy, Reesa and Grammy to spend time with them at their home in Flagstaff over the July 4th holiday. We were giddy as we drove to Flagstaff and watched the temperature on the car dashboard drop from 100+ to 78 degrees. Reesa loved the fresh air, the smell of the pine trees and the cooler weather. On the 4th, we all headed to the famed Flagstaff parade. The children of friends had decorated a “float” the day before and we all fell in line for the parade. We were all sporting our red, white and blue and Reesa had her star spangled outfit on! After the parade, The Spiro’s hosted a barbeque at their beautiful home. Their son Asher who is nearly 3, doted on Baby Reesa and gave her goodnight kisses each night. We are so happy to have spent that time in such a relaxed and cozy atmosphere. Any respite from the heat is welcomed and Reesa thrived with the breeze in her face and the comfortable sleep weather.

  3. You have to be one of the strongest families...and I hope that strength grows daily. 3 beautiful people have been brought together to share life with all it's joy, heartache, happiness, unfairness....everything...
    most of all love. We sometimes can't see the special miracles we're given because pain and loss cloud our vision, but the beautiful angel that is Reesa was given to share some of the goodness you each have...even if for too short of a time. Seems you've also been blessed with a wonderful friend in Skip, as here in St. Louis we're rallying behind his fundraiser to share a tiny little piece of the story to maybe make us all better people..and that's what Reesa's story has helped do. Stay strong, stay together, stay loving..as much as it hurts, I am humbled to see your story and strive to be a better person. Thank you for that
