Alpacas, Zoos, Roofs and a Birthday

The last couple of weeks have been full and busy... hence no time to update the blog.

We had some good friends that were going out of town for a couple of days and they asked Riane and Mary to take care of their animals. They have quite a lot, so one day I came by with the younger kids to see the farm. The girls always rode their bikes (3 miles each way) and did all the chores which included taking care of Alpacas, bottle feeding kitties, and walking the dog. What a time!

The baby alpaca needed supplemental bottle feeding.

These little kitties mama died, so Mary bottle fed them every day. It was her favorite job.

Braydon tried to make friends.

Oh MY! is it possible this little girl....

Turned 10!

We took the family to the Toledo Zoo to celebrate -- and DAIRY QUEEN. We loosely follow the Feingold Diet and hardly ever eat at a place like Dairy Queen. She is always talking about it. So, we mapped one out and found it after our trip to the zoo. Everyone said it was worth it.

Sorry, no pictures from DQ, but the zoo was awesome.

When we got home Adela had her favorite, pumpkin pie.

She opened her presents from Grandma. She received cookbooks and such -- her favorite things.

Just in case you wonder if she liked them -- she did and so did all the other kids. They immediately sat down and began to tell her things they might like her to try cooking. That very night Adela and Braydon teamed up to make our whole dinner (and it was fabulous). Braydon must be a hoot to cook with!

For those of you following our ongoing roof stores -- I only have one more thing to say....
