Odds and Ends

Last week my dear friend from grade school, Michele and her 2 kids came for a visit.  Her kiddos are just about 6 months older than ours.  We were able to visit before it got too hot out so the kids were able to play outside some too.  Parker was quite intrigued with June's curls and with a "baby" who could interact more than his brother...that would be Mason.  We had a great time and can't wait for another visit. 
It's official...I'm old....yesterday we traded my Alero for......
It was definitely time and we need the extra space that the Alero couldn't offer.  We are very happy with our new family vehicle the only drawback is it's red.  Every car I've ever owned/driven as mine has been red.  The cougar, the Grand am, the Alero, and now the least the RAV isn't red. 

 Travis and Parker heading out to the van with the salesman after the deal was complete....the family of four in front of the mini...

One good thing Carson is learning about being a baby brother is that you don't have to wait so long to experience the "good" things in life!  Parker wasn't allowed to go to Chuckie Cheese until his 1st birthday.  Yesterday a day after turning 3 WEEKS old Carson got his first experience. 

Parker has been wanting to go back for some time...ever since the high five incident (see earlier post).  With the weather being so hot and Parker not being able to play outside to burn off his energy we took the opportunity to break in the van and go to dinner at "I cheese". :)

Carson's repeat PKU test that had come back initially with some abnormalities and gave us quite a scare for what could be has now come back negative for all of the what ifs...his repeat PKU was cleared by the state and Dr. Larson, whom we adore, and Carson has been given a clean bill of health!  Praise GOD!
Thank you for all of the prayers and good thoughts lately, it was definitely heard!

We hope everyone is staying cool and enjoying some water activities or some air conditioning!
