Daddy had his annual Seguin Financial Group skating party.
This was the first year Hazel could attend. Last year we were in the hospital in London trying to do everything we could to keep her growing in my belly as long as possible.
This year we spent the afternoon introducing Hazel to those who were extremely supportive to us last year when Daddy couldn't be there to entertain his guests. We were so blessed that Matt's clients, who feel a lot more like family now, were so understanding and empathetic towards his absence last year. Thanks so much to those who sent positive thoughts and prayers our way during the most scariest time in our lives.
Most importantly, THANK YOU from the bottom of MY heart for supporting my husband while he was being a rock for both Hazel and I.
All making the same face....this picture is the best!!!
Chattin' it up with the other babies...
Lovin' her Auntie Paula, as usual.
Cuddles for some new friends...
We celebrated all our skaters.
Those who have been practicing and are getting very confident on the ice...
...and those who are just learning.
Some who leaned on their families or friends for support, even if it was just for a second...
And I promise you there was a moment. These 2 made it happen as they were doing laps around the rink.
It was a split second in time. One of those moments that you will NEVER catch on camera. One that you witness, one that you feel.
Like you know on the movies, when the boy and the girl fall in love and the background fades away and the world seems like it's spinning around them - for them? Refer to ANY chick flick EVER, and you will see what I mean.
That was it...the moment between Hazel and Daddy. The world fell away and it was just them gazing and smiling at each other, doing laps around the rink.
It was magic. She ADORES him!!!
Thanks to all who could attend the event this year. We were so glad to share some quality family and friend time with you!!!
Until next year...
