Mons and More

So, we went to Iowa so Cameron could visit his betrothed. Not really, but aren't they cute together and we wouldn't be sad if it happened. It was so good to see our great friends--the Mons family! Thanks for letting us stay at the Mons B&B. The food and accomodations were great!

Although, it didn't get much over 70 degrees the whole time we were there, we had a great time making a campfire and cooking smores and hot dogs. Here is some of our firewood:

Do you think he got enough?

Playing at the beach...

We slid down a cool rocket slide (you can't see the rocket--it is at the top)!

We went to a minor league baseball game (where our two older boys got scared of the fireworks at the end of the game--yes I did say the OLDER boys).

Then a trip to the zoo (isn't that cute)...

Yes, Wesley is letting the fish suck on his fingers. That's our boy!

The grand finale of the visit was the rock band party with costumes and everything...

And we oohed and aahed at our cute little Beth:

On our way home, in true Crow tradition we had to make a trip to the ER in Tulsa, OK. It was for daddy this time and he had food poisoning. Some missionaries and members of the church were there and gave Ken a blessing. It is so nice to have church members anywhere you go. He did survive and we rolled back into Dallas a day late and only a few hours before his third interview with JC Penney. Despite his sickly look, he must have passed the interview because he got the job. We feel so blessed! He was only out of job for 1 week.

Braxton, our nephew (Camie's oldest child), came to stay with Rhonda this summer. We had fun getting to know him better and the boys had a blast wrestling and fishing with Braxie. I know he doesn't look related since he can actually get a tan.

The Putnams also came to visit to celebrate Carter's birthday (we have a big 4 year old now). Carter really wanted his buddy Erick to come to his birthday party, so they came up and we played for a few days. We are glad that they are still fairly close and we can visit a few times a year! Thanks for coming Putnams.

The boys finally got new P.J's (Mario Kart Wii--which they loved) since their old ones were developing holes and paper thin.

And Carter is sporting a new hair style...the pull up look!

Bethany is starting to eat veggies now. One day, I put this cute bib on and I couldn't resist taking a picture of our little flower. The bib is so cute I decided to take it off and use it for looks only. It would surely get stained with gobs or bright orange veggies.
