I can't wait to get their pics back. The ones of Piper turned out sooo cute! But don't tell Ambry that...she said her feelings were hurt when I said Piper did such a good job. :) Poor thing. Of course, I then told her she did a good job too.

By total accident I made these "cookies" this week. Sorry about the blurriness of the pic, but if you want a yummy treat, try making these. No lie, they taste just like E.L. Fudge cookies.
All you need is 1 bag of chocolate chips, 3 tablespoons of butter, and nilla wafers. Melt the chocolate and butter together in the microwave and then spread it onto the wafers making a little sandwich. They will end up looking like mini hamburgers. Seriously, these things are so yummy!

Ignore Caleb's funny look on his face. :) He was talking to Ambry and then looked over kind of quick when I snapped the pic.
This pic was the unbelievable. Check out how big this is! It was about the size of my hand, if not a little bit bigger. They hatch them in this big "box" and this one was resting against the side of the glass. I took this looking at it's belly. Pretty cool, huh?
So if you live around this area, this is definitely something to take the kids to and check out. :)

Although one day late, I really wanted to put up pics from your birthday dinner. This place that we have gone to for the last couple of years is so much fun. It is a Japanese place and they cook everything on a big flat grill in front of you. Below is a picture of a flaming onion. They do all kinds of tricks with knives and flip your food all over the place.
At the end of dinner, they make hats out of the napkins for the kids to wear. Ambry, of course, was all about this. :)
Okay, the next couple of pics I couldn't resist. I just love Piper's big smile! She is such a ham.
And of course, a big family pic. We were missing Jen(Gerrit's fiance) and Jordan(Kaylynn's boyfriend) but it is kind of a tradition to do a family pic by the bridge in the restaurant every year.
I hope you had an awesome birthday mom! May God bless you with many more '20th' birthdays. Love you lots!!!

Can't go on vacation without trying to get a family pic. If only Ambry had been paying better attention. :) At least Piper looks adorable though.
Here is a pic of the girls playing in the little play house they had by the check in desk. They loved playing in this thing while I got us checked into our room. I know what I will be keeping my eyeballs peeled for at garage sales this summer! :)
Thank you so much Isaac and Esther for letting us invite ourselves along on your vacation! And for letting us share you room when we had to check out of ours! And for letting us use your utensils! The list could go on and on. :) Thank you, thank you!
