Morning, friends! I realized when I was typing up yesterday's post and kept adding a little more about what's been happening in our lives, that I haven't posted many pics here lately. So, I thought I'd share a little of what we've been up to, beginning with the addition of a new family member. I was going to wait to get a new hamster for Adina until we moved; but as you read yesterday, that is no longer happening due to a number of circumstances. Ultimately, we decided that staying put for now was in the best interest of everyone. Plus, we're just beat to a pulp with the whole process, but thank you so much for all your prayers. Mine are extremely weak at the moment. I've been through the wringer this past year and haven't quite made it back yet. So, we're beyond grateful for every one you've offered up on our behalf. Anyway, we picked out Oreo; and gosh, she makes my little girl happy.
My kiddos also had a little campout, in the backyard, with Daddy, over Memorial Day weekend. Fortunately, the rain didn't keep them up.
Did you know that June is National Great Outdoors Month? One great way you can join in on this month-long celebration of nature, wildlife, and the outdoors is by participating in this year's Great American Backyard Campout. The official date for this year's campout is June 28th. That night, tens of thousands of people will spend a night under the stars, in backyards, neighborhoods, local parks, and campgrounds across the country, enjoying the wonders of the great outdoors. This year, the National Wildlife Federation's Board of Directors and other friends have offered to donate $2 in support of NWF's wildlife conservation work for every person who participates - up to $400,000. So, join me, and pledge to be a part of the nationwide movement of people camping out for wildlife this year.
Sea Life. Ezekiel and I visited way back here, but it's geared for the younger crowd, and we knew that Adina really wanted to go. So, we broke into our pocketbooks (It costs WAY TOO MUCH.) and made a day of it.
