Ezra was delighted to have his very own 3-tiered birthday cake. As you can tell, it wore him out but he sure ate a lot.
Ezra and one of our sister missionaries, Sister Clark, share a birthday so we celebrated together.
Here we are before church last Sunday. Max's new hobby is photography and he's getting pretty good at taking pictures of me and Ezra (as well as lots of pictures of walls, counters, and other really random objects found around the house at his eye-level).
Here's Max showing off his new watch and his new haircut.
Ezra with his new birthday wagon (thanks Grandma and Grandpa!) and one of his new birthday hats.
And finally, a very random shot of me posing in front of George W.'s hometown, Crawford, which isn't far from us. When my mom was here we explored this area and even got to eat at one of George W.'s favorite cafes (we tried the GIANT baked potatoes smothered in chicken fried steak, gravy, and cheese...that's another story). Isn't this the most classic Texas picture ever? Cactus, George W. paraphanalia, big truck in the background, and of course, the Texas flag painted on the side of a building. Welcome to Texas, my friends.
P.S. My door is always open to visitors if you'd like to sample the Texas-style baked potatoes for yourselves.
