Anniversary Adventure in Atlanta

My wonderful husband surprised us with a family trip to celebrate our 4-year anniversary. We left early Friday morning and came back Sunday just in time for church. We went to Zoo Atlanta, Georgia Aquarium, Stone Mountain, IKEA, stayed at a fun hotel, went swimming and had so much fun being together as a family! Here's some pictures from our wonderful Anniversary Adventure in Atlanta.

This is us on top of Stone Mountain. It was a gorgeous view. We got up there right at sunset and enjoyed this amazing place.

We rode the Sky Lift up to the top of the mountain and back down just in time to find our seats in the grass to watch the Laser Spectacular. What a wonderful day!

Even Zoe had fun riding in the stroller . She was a great trooper to hang out while we ran around everywhere!

Clara loves animals so she was in heaven. She was so close to so many animals and was even able to touch some of them. :)

I wish we could just take road trips everyday and spend every second together as a family. Unfortunately, someone has to work to pay for all of our fun adventures. Thank you Jeremy for being such a wonderful husband and father. You provide for our needs, wants and so much more!! Your girls love you!!


Jeremy and I both turned 28 this month!! We had great birthday parties with our friends and families. Thanks Matt Rucker for these wonderful pictures! We also celebrated 4 years of marriage this month. I love my wonderful husband and the beautiful family that we are creating together. Clara will be turning 2 next month!! I'll be sure to post some pictures and updates on my 2-year-old next month. :)

Fall Creek Falls

We had an awesome Lifferth family reunion at Fall Creek Falls! Here are some of the main reasons why we loved our reunion:

*Lots of fun times in the water!! We swam almost everyday! Clara loves swimming! One day, Clara even swam about the distance of a football field from the shore to the waterfalls all by herself (with adult supervision of course). It was an exhausting swim, but she did it without a single complaint! *Fun family hikes and adventures in nature! So many family members helped with Clara and Zoe on our hikes. Grandpa and Cousin David carried Clara on some very difficult hikes. Thanks to our strong men!!

*Priceless moments together as a family! Jeremy is a hard worker and a very dedicated provider for our family which causes him to not be with us for most of the day. Every day Clara asks, "Daddy coming home?" So for us to be able to spend so much time with Daddy, it was a very special treat!

Below is where Clara had her big swim. She swam from the shore we are standing on in this picture, all the way to the falls behind us. She's a real trooper!

*FAMILY, FAMILY AND MORE FAMILY! We have a large & loving family! It was awesome to be able to spend time with everyone. We love our nieces and nephews so much and it is great to see Clara developing relationships with her cousins. It was also so much fun for Clara to spend time with Grandma, Grandpa and her many aunts & uncles. We love our family! Clara is sitting in my lap as I type right now and she is very loudly and excitedly pointing to each person in this picture and telling who they are! So cute! :)

Summer Fun!

Grandma & Grandpa Zurawski gave us a wonderful gift!! SESAME STREET LIVE!!! We went to see 1, 2, 3 Imagine with Elmo & Friends at the Bridgestone Arena. We weren't sure what it would be like and if Clara would enjoy it or not, but we ended up all having a wonderful time. The show was very entertaining for the whole family!!

We love living so close to Chris, Julie, Landon & Parker. Clara wakes up from most of her naps saying, "Landon & Parker come over." She loves her cousins and they love her! Landon & Parker also love and take great care of Zoe. They are gentle with her and love holding her.

Here is another picture of some of our fun times we had with the Gage's while they were visiting us here in TN. We love the Gages!

Clara loves Zoe!! She kisses her and wants to hold her everyday! Clara is a great big helper. She is quick to help with everything, especially when it involves Zoe.

Zoe has found her thumb and is constantly sucking it. I guess we have a Thumb Sucker on our hands. We think its cute and convenient since its always around to sooth her.

Zoe is a wonderful baby, just like Clara was. She falls asleep on her own and sleeps at least 8 hours every night and takes about 6 hours of naps during the day.

The above sleeping position is genetic. Many Zurawskis have been found sleeping this way, including, but not limited to: Grandpa Zurawski, Daddy, Clara and now Zoe! :-)

This is a picture of Zoe with Aunt Laura. We were thrilled to be able to spend 3 weeks with Laura, Mikaela, Jordan and Ryan. Clara and Zoe loved this wonderful time. We went swimming, played, ate yummy food, went to family reunions, and created tons of priceless memories.
