Happy Birthday Mommy...

Yesterday was July 4th where our entire county celebrates mommy's birthday. We had a small gathering at our place which the girls absolutely love. Anytime that people will come play with them makes them very happy!

The weather was beautiful (thought a tad bit hot at 93 degrees but there was a slight breeze some of the time) and we spent most of they day outside. There was food, fun and lots of playtime. The kiddos got to ride the tractor, the electric Dora quad, and cousin JJ even got to ride the little motorcycle.

Here is friend Mark driving his daughter Kathryn and Sarah around in the wagon:

Late in the day mommy, cousin Ann and JJ took off towards the beach to go on a helicopter trip that Ann had won as a prize and they took mommy along. What a wonderful birthday present!

In case you are wondering, mommy is 29 again.

Rebekah's emotional extremes seem to be getting a bit worse and we are not sure what's up with that. It's something we are going to have to keep an eye on and maybe check with the neropshychologist on. And then again it could just be normal kiddoitis. Around here we are not sure what is normal.

We also want to thank a group of daddy's friends who got together and made a wonderful donation to Rebekah's trust! It is getting lower and the prospect of future surgeries and neropshyc stuff that is not covered is daunting! People continue to be great and somehow we are always able to have the ends meet. What a praise.

Finally, early this morning daddy spent some time with a one year old and family that could use your prayers today, please.
