Happy Father's Day!

Hope everyone had a nice Father's Day weekend! On Saturday we went to the lake with some friends. Micah did not want to leave, but it was so hot we could only stay for a short visit. On Sunday, Micah and I made blueberry pancakes for Dan and he opened his cards. And, Happy Birthday to Pop Pop! It was my dad's birthday on Friday. We Skyped with him and Grammy on Sunday afternoon. We are supposed to have a very hot and dry week here in Arkansas. Hope you all are getting some relief where you are!
FYI--We are getting rid of our home phone since we only get telemarketers calling us on it anymore. From now on you can reach us on our cell phones!

Summer days

Micah and Daddy share a chocolate ice cream cone

When we went to check on Micah in his new bed setup, this is what we found. How can a person sleep like that?! Apparently, he thought it was pretty comfy. Arkansas has started off to a very hot summer this year so we've been spending our afternoons either inside or on the porch with the little wading pool Micah enjoys so much. We did manage to make it to the playground on Saturday before things got too steamy. Bteween visits to Corinth to direct the musical there, Dan's been working hard on the house, doing some painting and stripping the old stuff around the front door. It's looking good!

Micah is finally sleeping in the regular bed! As you can see, we found a frame for the twin mattress and then slid the boxspring halfway underneath the frame to create a wide step up onto the bed. We put pillows on top of that and covered it with the bedspread. So if he rolls off in the night, it'll be a short and soft landing! So far so good though. It was a very uneventful transition!
We are saying goodbye to some of our friends here in Arkadelphia this week. They are moving to another state! Their son is about Micah's age and they have enjoyed spending several Saturday mornings together on the playground near our house. Here they are in this photo. We'll miss you!

A Day at the Zoo

Riding the zoo train

Here are a few more pictures from our visit with Grammy and Pop Pop! Micah had a great time and enjoyed all the attention. On Saturday we went to the Little Rock zoo. The train ride was probably the highlight, but we did enjoy seeing a lot of the exhibits including the primates, elephants and big cats. It's a smaller zoo which was good for getting around with a little one. We are already missing mom and dad!
