Mercy Lynn Boonstra Loved Her Very First Bath!

Born at 12:09 pm today. 7 lbs. 7 ounces. 21 inches long. And look at all that hair! It's almost black!
She's a cutie!

Sleep hearing...or lack there of

A little bit ago I was asleep on the couch having had very broken sleep last night.
The kids are here, and Mom called in.
What I thought I heard her say was, "There's beans in the frig..."
anyone want to take a guess at what she really said.
I'll post later if no one thinks of anything...

Carter just came running in saying, "There's a snake out there!"

Jessica's eyes got pretty big, and I ran out to see.

Dad was out there helping the boys with their bikes, so they were all just standing there watching it.

It wasn't a garter snake, so I said to dad that he needed to kill it...

Chopped it in half and yet both sides keep wiggling... :P

Jessica called Brad and told him about it and he said it could be one of two kinds.
It was a hognosed snake we're pretty sure.
Great fun! :P

Dress-up! :)

Can you spy three things in these pictures that do not fit with the outfit? =]

Mom said a while ago that I dress-up more now then I did as a kid. :)

The Creation Museum

Jessica and Carter

One... Two... Three... Jump!

The side of the pool says 5 foot... it was more like 6 foot or I'm a LOT shorter then I thought I was.

Being crazy

Jump to me!


And now we are heading in to the Creation Museum


Me :D


Fighting over who gets to hold the door open. =]

Almost everyone. Just missing Beth, and Jessica.

we stopped at Taco Bell on the way down.



No I didn't really kiss it, it didn't look to happy when I got close up to it!

I think she was afraid he was gonna lick her. =]


To here the pictures have all been Beth's. The rest are mine.

Little miss cutie Ruthie


Back most seat. Neala and Ruthie

Next seat, Parker and Carter

Next, Faith, and some of the time Beth, or myself.

Driver, Jessica. The van you see in front of us is Brad's full of crazy boys... =]

And here we are waiting in line for the Men in White

Playing around with reflections

Almost what I wanted


Cute Carter

Waiting for it to start

Have you ever heard a Cicada, looked up, and there it was!?
Can you see it? It was really hard to find it on the camera, but I did get it.

Ut O.

They dropped poor Brandon going over the bridge

Everyone else went on that bridge, while I went of over my own bridge.

The paths met up, so it worked out fine

These flowers were so soft and loverly looking

Feeding the animals

Connor teasing the camelion. It was grabbing at the guys cups and stuff, rather funny to watch. :)

Oh No Brad!

Grabbing some food to eat

The cute one
Don't get too close to his food!

Jacob pushing Caleb out of the way as he runs for his life!

Drew, oh no! He got him!

Steve... sniff...

Eve and Jessica, they look just as far along. :)

Food on the ark

Almost everyone, waiting for The Last Adam

Faith looing sleepy after a LONG day

Fun with "miss Beth" (As the kids call her.)


Getting ready to leave

Last group shot. Silly kidos.

It was a fun trip!
Thanks to Brad and Jessica for taking me! =]
