Gonzalez's Heart

We had another very busy weekend. Grandpa, Mattie, Justin and Lilly stayed in their motorhome in front of our house. Friday night we all went to the Sauk Rapids parade. Wendy and Audrey joined us for that. Afterwards we went home and barbaqued. Saturday Sal, Jaden and I went to the cities to a concert which was wonderful. The rest of the crew went to the River Fest days in Sauk Rapids. Sunday we all went to the airplane show and then back to our house where we hung out and did some wonderful gardening. We made a flower garden for Amber. We put her stone the vet made in the middle and then planted around it. The kids all helped and gave Amber a flower. It turned out beautiful. Sunday night we ordered Chinese food for us all and then Grandpa and the crew left. At the end of the evening we had a bonfire and made s'mores in the back yard. It was a great weekend.

Jaden is doing wonderful. Sleeping and eating really well. He is a very happy and content little baby. Last Wednesday he weighed 9lbs 8oz. He oxygen level has dropped to around 75. They said at the hospital they do not want it below 75. We called his cardiologist and he said it was fine to be at the level it is at. We will be watching that closely. If it continues to drop then we will have to re-evaluate his status and go from there.

Looks like you all had fun at the parade! :)

The garden looks lovely. That was such a great idea to do that.

Great news about Jaden. He seems to just keep doing better and better. Will pray for the oxygen level.

Steph, how are you doing? I pray that you are feeling better. It was so nice to you see you last week during VBS. Katherine woke up this morning ready to go back. Kind of heart breaking to try to explain that it was only for last week. She loves being with Ashley and her school friends....praying for her that August 28th gets here fast but we have the kids really busy in July so maybe she won't be asking so much about going back to school. :)

Love the pictures!!

Hi Steph,
It is great to hear that you are doing so well and so busy! Jaden looks so healthy and it sounds like he is doing so well. You guys look like you had a lot of fun with your Dad and Mattie at the parade. I bet it is really nice that they are back in MN.
I remember all the fun that we had in Bible school in Elgin and staying with Grandma and Grandpa Krueger. I hope I always remember the times like that. It is so much fun to be making memories with our own families and our own traditions.
Have a great week and keep the photos and the updates coming! We love them.
Krista & family
