Our Savior's love, shines like the sun with perfect light. As from above, it breaks through clouds of strife.

Clara at the Zoo

Last weekend, we went to the Zoo with some friends. Clara enjoyed seeing all the animals, and would walk up to see every one of them.
As you can see, this girl was not very happy with Clara. We saw alot of different animals from Africa like Lions, Giraffes, Elephants, and Monkeys to name a few.
Clara has also discovered Ice Cream, and from the looks of it, this will be a long friendship between Clara and Ice Cream.

to Nashville and back

Now that I have completed the monstrous grant application that was due today, I can catch up on the rest of my life... including our blog!

Last weekend, we went to Nashville to visit my (Nicolle's) family. We drove out on a Wednesday night, thinking Clara would fall asleep at 8pm and stay asleep for most of the trip. Well (that's for you, Trin) here she is outside a gas station at 12:30am, after being awake for the last 3 hours. We're glad nobody called CPS on us, but we did get some strange looks while we were letting our 14 month old baby run around a convenience store in the middle of the night.

She had lots of fun playing with her younger cousin, Colton, who is 8 months old. He made a great rocking horse.
We were also able to visit some friends. I didn't get photos of Lindsey Purifoy and Greg Dibb, but here is a photo of Sharalee and I with our girls, who were playing dress-up. We got home on Saturday night, and the next Friday we went camping with our church group. It was Clara's first camping trip... she did great! We "practiced" by setting up the tent in our living room and letting her play in it with a flashlight. She slept great, but even though she is little she took up lots of space in the tent, so her mom and dad didn't sleep much. I think its time we look for a bigger tent.
