Welcome Baby Joshua Jude

Last weekend Scott and I headed over to Bakersfield to meet our new nephew, Joshua Jude!!! It was an exciting moment that we've been looking forward to for a long time. He is already such a wonderful example of our God's love, faithfulness, and perfect plan. I'm sure he will continue to be a blessing to all of us for years to come. Welcome to the family Joshua Jude, we love you!

Before the baby arrived, he had some time to kick back and hang in Bakersfield with Scott's family. We ate some yummy PF Changs, went swimming, colored, had a sewing lesson, made cookies and enjoyed some good family time. Then once our new nephew arrived, it was all about taking turns holding that sweet little guy!

Es Un Nino! Compliments of Mr. and Mrs. Scott Zaballos. Hopefully one day Joshua Jude you find us as funny as we think we are!

"Passerby fed meter." Thanks city of San Luis Obispo for ruining some kind stranger's generosity on our way out of town.

The Stokes Family minus big brother Owen!
