We helped Neal celebrate his birthday on July 21. We started out the day with an ultrasound of the baby. The best birthday gift Neal received was finding out we are going to have a girl. We are so excited and looking forward to the arrival of our daughter! We went to Neal's parents in AR over the weekend and had another birthday celebration for him there.

Last Friday night Neal took Josiah on his first camping trip at the ripe old age of 18 months. They went camping at Bledsoe Creek State Park which is about a 25 minute drive from the house. Both Josiah and Neal survived the night which was a hot one and they had a blast. Below are some pictures taken while they were camping.
It did not take long to see some wildlife. This doe was at the camp entrance with 2 fawns.
As soon as they got to the camp site, Josiah decided to sit and have a snack. This was his very 1st Little Debbie oatmeal pie.
We also went fishing and Josiah always wanted to hold the fishing pole.
We had quite a few bites, but this was the only fish we landed. Josiah did not think it was yucky, but the sun was in his eyes resulting in this look. He kept wanting to touch the fish.

We also spent some time on the swings and slides at the play ground.Out on our walk before leaving we saw these 2 hen turkeys along with about 6 poults. The guy camping next to us said they fed right by our tent around 6:00 AM that morning.
