He's a nut!
In other news, several people have emailed and commented asking if I will make them a mini-wallet and what I charge. The answer is !!!YES!!! and they are $10 personalized and $8 plain plus shipping. I can do any country or state or an initial or maybe another small symbol if we talk about it first, and the colors are totally customizable. :) If you don't know what I'm talking about, scroll down to the next post.

Because this post could get really looooong if I talk about everything we did, I'll just share some pictures and talk about them. Trust me, that's going to be long enough. We also had a party for Silas while we were there because he turned ONE on Sunday. Those pictures will be in a separate post.
On Saturday we went to the zoo. It was hot as heck but we had a blast and the boys did too. Sarah blogged about our day.
We spent lots of time just hanging out in the lake and on the porch eating watermelon and watching Silas play with the water hose.

Friday morning Silas played in the lake and dirt for a long time. He was having a blast until it was time to go in and get rested for his party. :)
It was a fabulous trip and we can't wait until Christmas when we can both go out there again.
I just realized that I left off a couple pictures from our fishing trip so stay tuned for a separate post with those and birthday party #1 pics. :)

Kristen over at We are THAT Family has shared with us an opportunity to feed orphans in Ethiopia. You see, there is a formula shortage there and many infants are hungry because of it. I cannot imagine having babies to take care of and love but not having enough food for them. The thought breaks my heart and (if I may be so bold) it should break yours too.
You should go to her blog to read about how you can help in detail, but just in case you won't I will share the basics here for you.
We need you to go to WalMart and buy cans of milk based formula (no soy please) and send it to this address:
Heritage House ’76, Inc.
919 So. Main St.,
Snowflake, AZ 85937
You can go to WalMart's website and order a gift card and have it shipped directly to the address above. This is what I am going to do because it seems to be the best use of money - you can spend more on formula and less (NONE) on shipping. All of the gift cards sent will be used to buy formula and they will get it all to Ethiopia.
Between 26,000 and 30,000 babies and children die every day from hunger and preventable disease.
We can help change that. Will you join with us?
"Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world." James 1:27

But I have a good reason.
I have been cleaning and packing for our trip to Louisiana.
We leave in the morning (hello 5am!) with our besties following us. Zach and Sarah and the boys have never been to my parents house and it is the last stop on our Hometown Tour. :) Well, unless you count Paris, which I'm sure Zach does since he grew up there. It might be awhile before we make it there though. Maybe we should say this is the last stop on the US Hometown Tour. I digress.
Guess I should get to that.
What are you reading (book or online) that is making you think this summer? Please share.
