Golden Opportunities

It's that time of the year again - Golden Shoulders made their way across the country and stopped in our little corner of the world. We had a great time hanging out with old friends and listening to awesome music. As an added bonus, the concert served as a great start to our Labor Day Weekend which we spent with Travis Biggs and Ben Counihan. The amount of fun we had was inversely proportionate to the amount of pictures we took.

Here's a little clip of the band playing "I Will Light You On Fire." Seriously amazing song.

Where does the time go?

More to come after I'm finished catching up on the rest of the posts. But for now, Happy Birthday Owen!

Tuesdays Are Terrific!

Every August, Thanksgiving Point has $2 Tuesdays, where admission to the Dinosaur Museum, the gardens, or Farm Country is only - you guessed it - two bucks. Last year we went to the gardens for a friend's birthday. This year we headed to the Dinosaur Museum. With admission at $9 a person this is a steal. We enjoyed every second!

The Newest Addition

We were recently adopted by a stray kitten. It had been hanging around the house for a while and Zoe latched onto it like she never has before. She started referring to it as "my kitty" so when we couldn't find anyone to claim her, we took the plunge and became cat owners. Eek.

We're actually loving it. The kitty - Flash, or "Flashaveema" (as Zoe has chosen to call her) - is so sweet. She lets Zoe carry her around all day and tolerates all of Owen's poking, pinching, grabbing, and yelling with no hissing or scratching. We all really love having the kitty in our family. At nearly every prayer, no matter who is saying it, Owen always adds "kitty, and kitty's food, and kitty's milk" to the things we are thankful for.

It's also been really good for Zoe - learning how to care for and feed her, and talking about what the kitty likes and needs. It really feels like this cat was meant to be in our lives at this time.
