Thanks to Jeanelle, I am finally able to post some pictures from our vacation. (I forgot our camera, so I had to rely on the kindness of others... sorry, there are no pictures from visiting with Eric's family.) Here are a few pictures from our visit to the zoo (it was 94 degrees that day!):
Here are a few from Matthias' 5th birthday celebration- first, eating birthday cake:
The girl's did all of the decorating & baking! We were very impressed with how well it turned out- it truly pays to teach our daughters while they are young!
What does one do when they see wild Indians on one's food? You shoot them, of course!
After eating our cake, we went to the Stockyards for dinner (like we needed more food!) and a rodeo. Fun, fun, fun. Here are some pictures before the rodeo:
Pictures from the rodeo:
Boys standing proudly while the our national anthem was sung:
Here is a picture of that healthy eating that we did in the South:

We had a BLAST visiting the Arendse family- thanks for having us!
