3 Things to Share

1. Max insisted on getting all dressed up for his friend Caroline's tea party birthday (side note: Caroline claims they will be getting married and having 4 kids)

Not entirely sure what's going on with his pose

2. We had a great vacation to Sea World and South Padre Island

3. After 5 years of begging, Ephraim got his way. We got a dog. This is Ginger. So far, so good.

Cap'n Crunch and Kissing Goats

Way back around Memorial Day, Ephraim's parents paid us a visit. We picked blackberries and ate cobbler, ate barbecue, ate at Elvis' favorite Texas drive-in, ate yummy Mexican....anyone sensing a theme here? We need some less-fattening hobbies. Anyway, we had a great time and can't wait to see Grandma and Grandpa again!

After picking berries and digging new potatoes, we checked out the goats, donkeys, and horses at the berry farm. Grandma kissed the baby goats and of course, Ezra had to kiss them too.

On June 1 Ephraim was promoted to Captain. It was really nice having his parents here for the occasion. We only wish the ceremony could've been held in the air conditioned building versus the blazing hot parking lot. Grandma and Grandpa told Max he has to call Ephraim 'Captain Dad' now but instead, he's taken to calling him Cap'n Crunch. I suppose that's a little catchier. Thanks for coming to visit Grandma and Grandpa!!! Come back soon!
