The Lord bless and keep you. The Lord make His face to shine upon you. The Lord be gracious unto you, and give you peace.

Sunflowers & Bees

I started up again reading a 'Canon t3i For Dummies' book so I can get as much out of my camera as possible. I went out to practice what I read & I got these shots. You have to click on the first one to see what's in it. These have nothing to do really with what I read 
but I like them. I was pretty impressed with the first shot, which doesn't happen often.

Cast Every Care...

Let each day begin with prayer,
Praise, and adoration.
On the Lord cast every care,
He is your salvation.
Morning, evening, and at night
Jesus will be near you.
Save you from the tempter's might,
With His presence cheer you.

Maria Ruth Hicks

Maria was born July 19th and is the 13th grandchild.
There are now 7 girls & 6 boys.

We were all very happy and surprised to hear it was a girl! We would have been happy with a boy too but Maria's nice. I'm very thankful to be a part of their lives and be able to be right in the action at times like these. To watch David James' face when he heard it was a girl was priceless. He usually tries to act tough but he's really sweet. Having a sister will be
good for him & Matt.

The Lord, again, has given us what we don't deserve.

Oh taste and see that the Lord is good: blessed is the man 
that trusts in Him.

Point Defiance Park

I think David could have stayed all day to take pictures.

Matthew knows how to bug me:) 

The day we went to the zoo, we stopped on the way back at this garden and David & I took pictures. There were rows of different colored roses & other flowers. I want to go again some time with a 100-400mm lens or a Macro. David James took lots of pictures too and was yelling half the time for us to smell the flowers:) Matthew, on the other hand, enjoyed playing in the gravel & didn't really notice the flowers. We we're getting ready to leave and he had two handfulls of rocks he was gonna bring home for his frog.

A Day At The Zoo

David likes to take pictures.
Matthew & David 

David enjoyed watching all the sharks. 

 Yesterday I went to the zoo with David, Joanna, David James & Matt. They thought baby #3 was gonna come in the afternoon & I would drive the boys back home from the hospital, but it didn't happen. The boys still liked the zoo & we're glad they're dad had the day off.
