4th Fun

A few of you have asked me what kind of camera I use. It's a Canon EOS 40D. I have no idea what I am doing, but I love learning how to take better pics of our boys.
Our fourth didn't start out fun, but by 7 am Monday everything was wonderful!

During the fireworks Sunday night pieces of ash and dust got into Jason's eyes. One piece just wouldn't come out no matter what we did. I couldn't see anything but was still trying to flush it out at midnight! It was bad, and he was in a lot of pain. We thought maybe it was a scratch, so we went to bed.

His eye was still hurting the next morning when we woke up at six. I was really worried. Praise the LORD we have an ophthalmologist in the family who lives close to us, and he was able to meet Jason at his office.

A piece of ash was burned under the top of his eyelid, so that is why it didn't come out on it's own. Crazy. Paul was able to swipe it out with a q-tip, and Jason was home around seven. I was so thankful.

We flew to Hot Springs for the day to visit Jason's parents and grandparents. It was a perfect day! 
 Our co-pilot
I sat in the back with Colson, and he was just as happy as he could be. ; )
Zach loved playing in the creek and learned how to catch crawdads. He named one Pete and carried it around with him all afternoon.
 I can hardly even look at this picture. Too cricket/spiderish for me!
G-Dad & Colson

Z is with Gran and G-Dad this week getting spoiled playing, and I'm working on Colson's party. Our house is very quiet. ; )

A sweet woman commented that her daughter and Reese must have had a wonderful view with the fireworks this past weekend. I love this thought!

What you say flows from what is in your heart.

Their little faces are just SO sweet! My gosh they are precious! :) Look at all of Colson's teeth...SO cute!

I'm sorry to hear about Jason, but thankfully it wasn't anything too serious AND how awesome to have an opth. in the family! ;)

Enjoy the quiet! :)

I just love looking at the pics of your children. They are just about the cutest boys ever. I always smile when I look at them.

Praising God with you that Jason's eye wasn't any worse than it was.

Katie, I have the canon 60D which is similar to ur camera. What kind of bag do u use to carry it around. Mine is soo heavy and of course I don't want it to get broken! It has been hard to carry it to events b/c it is soo bulky! What do u do??

Linds said...

that toothy pic of Colson is SO cute!

Lauren said...

I love how you can say you flew somewhere for the day!! So fun!!! :)

Melanie Mueller said...

That is so awesome that Jason can fly you guys somewhere when you want to. Your co-pilot and your little fellow passenger couldn't be any cuter!!!
Oh- and I am so glad that Jason's eye got better. That must have been miserable.

Carolina Girl said...

I used to catch crawdads as a child but I dont think I could do it now! Eeew!

Dianna said...

That crawdad picture is disgusting! You are one brave momma to deal with that!
