Family Vacation!

Well - the Sherrill's officially went on their first annual "almost" family vacation. I say almost b/c poor baby kyle got left at home! After a summer of travel for john and mommy doing constant therapy with kyle - the two older boys were ready! So we headed out to our long awaited first "almost" family vacation.

We went to Fiesta TX and SeaWorld where jack's only goal was to ask Shamu if "he was a boy or girl". that is what he wanted to do! Jadon's only goal was to check into a hotel like zack and cody from "suite life" as it is called around our house.

I planned and planned - mapped out both parks for all the rides that the boys could go on (height requirements), places to eat that had kid food and were air conditioned, planned what shows to see when - what hotel had free breakfast. and then - how to keep up with a 6 year old and 3 year old at the park. so they were dressed alike, had on arm bands with our cell phone number on them, and they wore whistles to blow if they could not see us. thankfully we did not have to use any of them - came close once.

and turns out... Jadon and Jack are roller coaster junkies!!! We got lucky when we went into the park we had a worker that did the height measurements and jack was really 41.5" but she passed him for 42". so we got to ride more than we thought! and they had a blast! we road the Road Runner Express 5 times!

all in all - we had a blast! absolute blast!

Our Story

This story begins with 5 people. John, Kelly, Jadon, Jack, and Kyle (he is only 23 weeks old... and he is still safely tucked away in his mommy's belly) In an hour's time Kyle made his way into the world. 1 pound, 3 ounces- 11 and a half inches long. This family will never be the same. This child is a warrior. He has the spirit of a Lion, and more courage than a whole pride. He is fierce, and fearless- and he is teaching us to fear the Lord- and to believe that God is in our midst and healing even now. Join us as pray, as we praise, and as we journey through this life as lovers of God and all His glory.
