Camping:This Spring we went on a campout to Brazos Bend State Park. This was Ezra's first campout, and he did great! At the campout he was about 4 months old which is a perfect age for camping! Small enough to be held all the time if needed, but not mobile to get into dirt and trouble. So EASY! This was our first time camping with two children. It was fairly easy since Ezra was in that easy stage of baby-hood. This Fall may be another story, though.
We took our Johnny-Jump-Up with us. John scaled a tree to hang it. Here is Ezra suspended in the air!
We visited the nature center one morning. We got to pet a snake, and an alligator!
Learning the difference between and alligator and a crocodile.
Hiking to the lake.
This is the only large alligator we saw up close. Maybe 8 feet from the sidewalk to the lake. The alligator was probably about 5 feet or so long.
Shooting at a range:
It was a family affair.
Around the house:
James in disguise as Mr. Potato Head.
Exploring the outdoors.
Ezra has learned to pull himself up to a standing position!
Ezra started solid foods last week. He dislikes the pureed foods, so he went straight to soft whole foods. Yes, that is a french fry. :-)
Playing with Legos.
We replaced one of our large kitchen windows this month! The old one James broke by hitting it with a paint brush (the metal part). We also put up new blinds!

My little helpers!
John was in a performance with the Russian group, Uzori. This was their 20th anniversary performance. Below is from the Ukrainian welcome dance, Hopak.
Here is a link to watch the dances on YouTube! John is the guy with the long/peppy hair.
Three year anniversary:
We celebrated our third anniversary on June 4. We went to IHOP for breakfast, then spent the rest of the morning at the butterfly exhibit at the Museum of Natural Science.
Our fearless boy.
A butterfly landed on my pinky finger!
We got to see so many different types of butterflies up close!
John and I went to dinner (alone!!) to the Carriage House Cafe. It was a unique place! It is full of antiques. We enjoyed the delicious food, and walking around the restaurant seeing all the antiques! The owner of the restaurant was an antiques dealer before opening up the cafe which was a carriage house way back when.
Driving by you may never know this is a restaurant.
This is tatted!
