Odds and Ends

On Friday, I took the boys to the zoo. Alex would not smile for the camera.

He likes the playground.

He was looking at the hippos who were actually out of the water and eating.

He was TIRED!!

Baby A is sick - eye, ear and throat infection. We aren't sure at this point if his surgery will be able to happen on Thursday. Please pray that he gets better soon. We had everything set up for surgery on Thursday, so please pray for patience for me - I don't do very good when my plans get changed. :)

I also REALLY want to take Baby A home when it's time. I've been looking at airfares - and OH MY GOSH!! I can't get there for under $1,000 in July. That's just crazy. I really want to go - but I can't justify paying that kind of money. I'll keep looking and see what I can do.

What a fun playground. They smile all the time and then never for the camera!

Prayer to you and Baby A. I can only imagine how hard this is. You are amazing.

I know what you mean about airfare. I am dreading what it is going to cost to go Kazakhstan and possibly 2 or 3 times for Rich. I hope you can find something.

Great pics!!

Airfare is crazy. i had to dip into American express points to get my tickets for August. Did you check out Spirit Air, they had some good deals.

Prayers going out for Baby A and the surgery

Love the pics. I think they all go through a stage where they just stare at the camera. Or could it be that they are just tired of that flash. Maya does the same thing.
