Some Odds and Ends

Here are just a few random pictures that I thought I would share. I have nothing really new to report. For my dad's sake~Dad, I am reading "The Screwtape Letters", and I got "Eldest" for an early mother's day gift. (o:

Here is Travis and his big wood. *grin* (o; I took this picture because I was totally impressed by his strength and ability to move such big wood.
Here are the boys at Joseph's favorite place in the world. The Brown Bear Car Wash.

We went out for a drive and stopped at a Wendy's and got burgers. We were just going to stop and eat in the car when Travis saw this little league game. We just got out and joined the group. The boys really enjoyed watching it. Since Joseph is missing a vertebra his spine isn't as strong as a normal person so the doctor discouraged most sports. He recommended running and racing for Joseph. So, we don't do t-ball or soccer~but Joseph has never cared. His only regret when the doctor told him was that he really wanted to play football when he got older. The doctor said especially not football. So, even though he can't play, we enjoy showing them the sports. I think Joseph is going to be a really great long distance runner some day. He has lots of energy and really really long legs!
If you ever come to Seattle you have to go to Dick's Drive-In. They are a Seattle icon. They sell greasy delicious burgers and fries for a reasonable price. We had just heard that Dick's had changed their oil that they cook their fries in. We had to go try out the new trans fat-free fries. We think they taste better. Here is the link to the story about the big oil change. (o:

I don't know why I'm including this~just a picture of me in the morning that Travis took. Nice big zit on the chin and all. (o:

I didn't know that Joseph was missing a vertebra! Is that just something he was born without? Our Spencer has an extra rib. I guess we're all unique in our own ways, right?

Great pictures that look like a lot of fun. We love Wendys. I wish they could come see Jakie and Orrie play baseball. and I did not know Joseph was missing a vertebra? Had you tolled me that before?
Love you
