Me in the Bluebonnets!

After I posted the pictures of Kai in the bluebonnets the other day, I came across this picture of me when I was 4 years old and thought I'd share.  :)

Kai in the bluebonnets

If you're not from Texas, you may not be aware that we Texans are in love with our state flower, the Bluebonnet.  Come April, it's not unusual to see entire familes pulled off to the side of the highway posing the kids in the field of bluebonnets to get that perfect photo.  Yesterday I literally saw a crazy mother posing her children on the median!  So, one of the great perks of living out in the country I've just recently realized.  All I had to do to get my pics of Kai posing in a field of bluebonnets was walk to the next field over from our house.  No pulling off to the side of the highway as cars whiz by, hoping for that perfect shot.  Just one more reason I love where we live!

A trip to the Zoo

Easter weekend we took a group of Karen refugees to the Dallas Zoo.  For most of them, it was their first visit to a zoo, and also their first ride on the train (we took the Dart Rail).  It was a blast.  Here is a photo montage for your viewing pleasure.

New Baby Donkey!

Leroy and Daphne are pleased to announce the birth of their new daughter, Jezebel, born on Saturday, April 3rd.

Well, Leroy is not actually thrilled, exactly, as this means that his advances are bound to be shunned by his bride for at least the next 4 months.  We'll assume he's happy on the inside...

This is my cousin Tyler congratulating and consoling Leroy on the new arrival.
