This week could be titled: Do as many things outside as you can before it gets too hot.
It also involved working on the kids clothes as growth spurts have hit this house yet again. One perk of living in Arizona is I don't have to completely redo closets with the seasons. Basically the kids have a couple of pairs of pants and a few long sleeves and the rest is shorts and t-shirts. Colin is starting to feel the hand-me-down blues, so we treated him with a few new things just to spruce things up. He looks so stinkin' cute in these pj's!
Brothers, in pj's, playing Mario Cart is always the best.
We went to see the bugle band and silent drill team on base. It was hard to get a great picture, but it was such a fun experience. I loved that the kids got to see the different instruments and a little taste of daddy's work life. During the silent drill, they pulled out the knives at the end of the gun and Eli said very loudly, "They could kill themselves!!!". Thankfully everyone around us chuckled.
Ben met up with us and we got to sit with our friends, the Helton's. Shane deployed with Ben last year and since then, him and his wife have started coming to our church.
We also went to the camel farm with the White's.
There was also a zebra and a zedonk (a mix of zebra and donkey).
There were lots of goats and ducks too.
Because it's not every day you get to stand by a camel:
A picnic at Sonic was also a must. Next time we go, it will probably be to get a drink so we survive the rest of the drive home.
