A few moments...

Sharing a chair and watching a video together.  Love it.

Working in the back of the truck.

Cute stuff

And a garden find.  :-)

Two More

Two more shots from the zoo.  The one below is one of my favorites.  I think it would be fun to print out in black and white and frame.

The Trip

So, I promised a post on our little vacation.  As I think I mentioned, we had to get rid of our goats and some of our poultry, so we loaded them in our pick-up and took them to a Bible camp that was a big part of Stephen's life.  We got to see friends and spent a night there.  Next day we traveled on and had a night in a hotel, enjoyed some meals out, picked up some stuff for work, saw another friend of Stephen's and took in a great zoo.  After that we had more time with friends and a night at their house, in the morning chapel and lunch and then headed home.

And now for some captured moments:

And now, the joys of trying to photograph three!  :-)

It's not everyday that Clara and Hilkiah get to feed a giraffe!

Half Way Through July...

 It's already half way through the July... and no post from this negligent blogger.   Well, I'm finally here again with some happenings and pics from round here.  First of all I have some shots of my little outdoors man.  This little guy really likes heading outside.  He gets bummed if it looks like you're taking him out and then go back inside.  He likes crawling around and exploring, playing with the hose, seeing the sights and sounds, watching the chickens and eating dirt! Don't believe me?  Scroll down.  :-)

Having fun with Dad on lunch break.  :-)

Pick me up please Mom! 

We did end up having to get rid of our goats and some of our birds, due to city regulations.  But we had been praying for the Lord's leading regarding our little "homestead" and I think this may have been His answer for now.  So, we now have just six chickens.  It's disappointing to not have the great milk, but it does free up quite a bit of time. 

A Bible camp Stephen grew up going to said they would take the animals we needed to get rid of, so we took them there and were blessed to be able to make the trip a family vacation!  Pictures and more about that hopefully coming soon!
