Habitat for Humanity

While we were in China we met a couple from Colorado who were using the same agency as us. I have kept in touch with them through emails and facebook. They have just been picked by Habitat to go to China to help rebuild homes and towns that were effected by the earthquake last year. They are counting on donations to go. According to Barry this is what they need.....(quote)

"Although we have many things in the works to help us get there, we are under a bit of a time crunch to get our initial goals of $1,000 by June 10th and an additional $2,600 by July 12th. The total $3,600 covers our food and ground transportation along with building supply fees to Habitat for Humanity while we are in China. After this portion is paid, we will need another (anticipated/estimated) $4000 for air travel. We are also working on some matching funds for a few things, so that donations will go even farther."

We did our first camping trip of the year this past weekend. We didn't go very far from home but its a campground that we like.
Malia just LOVES golf carts, so we rented one for the weekend plus its a nice way to keep cool when its hot and a nice way to waist time when Malia is bored. She wants to be on it 24/7.

Here she is with her cousin Delilah.

Every time we go to this campground Malia wants to get on this swing.

All in all we had a great weekend! Except for the storm on Sunday afternoon, it happened all the sudden. It got real windy and rainy then it started to hail. Our campsite flooded, it was an adventure!

I stepped out when it was done raining, the water was about 3" above my ankle.
The scary part that we were only about 20 feet from a large wide creek and this is how close it was to our camper after only about an hour of the downpour. I was sure that we would float away during the night. lol.

The Philadelphia Zoo

We met some friends Ella & Sophie and Lauren and Paige at the Philadelphia Zoo this past weekend. We had a great time! We were very lucky that the weather held out for us because it was supposed to storm that day

They had a really cool playhouse there and thats where Malia really started to "open up".

They had a petting zoo too, Malia was pretty hesitant at first but then relly wanted to pet them.

Some new pictures

Again nothing new happening around here, we have been super busy here with "summer stuff". It seems when May rolls around we just get soooo busy we don't have time for anything.

Here she is using my makeup, she put concealer all over her lips. Who was I to tell her that's not where it goes.

I forget where we were going but Megan turned around and started laughing, Malia was putting on her chap stick a little on the heavy side.

Malia LOVES being outside ! Anytime she gets the chance she is outside. She can now ride a tricycle and keep her left foot on the pedal. She even uses her left leg to push on the pedal!
