We have safely arrived in Florida!

Well, it is 2:17 in the morning and we are here in our hotel in Orlando! Since they slept in the car the boys are going crazy and jumping on the beds and going wild!
:-) We left Satruday morning and stayed overnight about half way. The boys did well in the car and we are having a good time. We were able to stop and see a good friend of mine from my IUP days in North Carolina and that was really great because I don't get to see her very often!

It is strange being here. Since Isaac died, often times especially when I am getting the kids in the car I feel as though someone is missing. That feeling is multiplied times two now. We are on a family trip but our whole family isn't here. I brought pictues of the boys who can't be here with us and in some small way it is my way of making sure they ARE here with us.

Thank you to everyone who has helped make this possible for us! Howard and I finally really had a chance to chat in the car and for that I am so thankful already!

Please continue to pray for baby Eva as she will be born in just a few short hours. Her family is so excited to meet her!

The weather here is awesome! I am not sure what we are up to for tomorrow but I will keep you posted! I love you all!

I am so glad you decided to come to Florida, the weather has been beautiful the last few days. I hope that you have an incredible week as a family! I will always cherish the week our family shared, after Tristan passed away, at a beach condo in New Symrna, it really was a place for us to begin healing because that is soooo hard to do in your own home. It will also allow you to spend quality time with the boys and make new memories to hold to on the difficult days - so take lots of pictures to look back on. I look forward to reading all about your trip.

Love, Yvette Hostetter
