"God sees you not only as mortal beings on a small planet who lives for a brief season -- He sees you as His child. He sees you as the being you are capable and designed to become. He wants you to know that you matter to Him." Dieter F. Uchtdorf

Independence Day part 2
I forgot to mention in the last post about the 4th of July that those photos only showed our "morning activities." Post naptime, here is what we did:
Ate festival foods, rode carnival rides (actually just Mr. Lo did the carnival, and he stayed pretty tame about it--jump house and large slidey thing), and the highlight...
Pony rides! Jerry loved that he got to be the one leading the pony around. Lo kept saying, "I riding a real horsie!" and it took some coaxing to get him to dismount. Also, it should be mentioned that we almost bought a tank of baby turtles from one of the vendors at this festival. Jerry and I are sort of really pet-people, and it drives us crazy to move so often we don't feel ready to buy another pet right now. But seriously, these turtles were adorable. Palm-sized swimmers that reminded Jerry of turtles he'd kept in a bowl when he was a boy. We have an official goal to get some turtles as soon as our abode stabilizes a bit. :)
