Uzziah is working on perfecting his phony bologna cry. He's getting pretty good at it. This particular day, he was screaming and "crying" because I told him not to throw his food to Warnie.

We went for a hike today at a natural area about 3 miles from our home. We hiked 1 mile out, and 1 mile back. Some of the littler guys got pretty tired, but they made it and did a great job. It was such a beautiful day and I'm so thankful we got to be outside as a family, enjoying God's creation!

We've had a couple of really warm days recently and the boys are enjoying all sorts of water wars. While at Hobby Lobby today, we found these water shooters which were on super clearance and so each boy got to pick one out. They had a blast soaking one another and staying cool.

Ezra turned 9 today. My boy is growing up (and far too fast if you ask me, but it seems no one is asking me). He is a sweet and thoughtful young man who cares well for his younger brothers. He loves to play soccer, play music, read and do art. He is a huge help around the house and a total delight. What a gift it is to be his mom!
For breakfast, Ezra wanted sticky buns and sausage links.
For his birthday activity, Ezra wanted to go camping, and we had planned to do so. However, the family with whom we were going to camp had some significant health issues the day prior to departing, and the weather seemed a bit questionable, so with those two factors, we had to postpone our trip. Although he was disappointed, Ezra handled it well and quickly came up with a "Plan B" for his birthday. So for his celebration, we went swimming as a family, watched one of the Star Wars movies, ordered pizza, and then spent some time in the afternoon getting acquainted with his new roller blades. It was a great Plan B and a super fun day.
And his birthday cake of choice was a cheesecake with Oreo cookie crust and cherries on top.
Happy birthday my boy. I love you to the moon and back again a million times and am so very proud of you!
