baby, bowling, birthday and buddies

this week i helped give lori a baby shower to get ready for baby lily's arrival. she is coming soon...only about a week left!!!! i have been blessed having lori in my life since we were 10 years old. that's a LONG time! :-)

a group prayer to bless lori and lily and her arrival.

this week we went bowling with our friend amanda.

elijah helped judah bowl. they were a great team!

this week i celebrated my birthday with my boys. jason took me out last weekend for indian food and roller derby (it was awesomeness). my friend suzy sent me the shirt i'm wearing that says: "expecting from ethiopia". i love it!

this week we played with our buddies, annalee and grace (lily's big sisters).

getting wet on a daily basis is required to survive the summer heat!

it's only one more week until we leave for the beach and we can't wait!

what happens at camp...

stays at camp.
and you never know what you'll do when you're at camp with kaki.
 you might drive down the road to an exotic zoo
and get to pet & feed all kinds of animals, like


white elk

a buffalo


an ostrich


and goats

lots of goats!

let's not forget the deer

or getting eaten by a deer

you could get pushed down by a deer and end up with
a fat lip, like this:

you'll always get to go to the dining hall for food

and see brandy, the camp dog

and at camp, even 8 year olds can drive!

the boys had a wonderful, fun week at camp!

summertime {week 2}

during week 2, we ate some s'mores (above).

we also did a service project with some of our friends of picking up trash at a local park.
we couldn't get the kids to stop they were having so much fun...really.

we also went to a star wars concert in the botanic gardens.
so. much. fun.
the boys thought they had died and gone to star wars heaven.

the ultimate character to elijah: darth vader.

the fort worth symphony did a fantastic job,
complete with fireworks to the star wars theme music.

we celebrated amanda's 6th birthday at the park.

and on father's day we went to our first ranger's game of the season.

we are headed to camp of the hills for part of this week.
one of the highlights of our summertime for sure.
