Christopher gets Ordained!

What a blessing today was!!  We were able to watch Christopher get ordained at Houston Northwest Church.  He has had such an impressive journey of school, ministry, and service.  We were all able to watch with pride for both services and then enjoy lunch after. SO PROUD!

Parks Palooza

As much as possible, the Parks cousins schedule a family reunion to get together to catch up and keep in touch.  Unfortunately, due to my recent surgery 3 weeks ago we were not able to attend.  However, I wanted to post some pictures so we have them in our blog books for family pictures.  This year they rented a pontoon boat on Lake Travis in Austin and then ate dinner at Danny and Sally's.  We are so sad we missed it and I just LOVE the pictures!

A trip to the country and the Grapeland Safari

We decided to head to Grapeland for 3 nights to enjoy the lake this past week.  We enjoyed movies, games, Geocaching in Augusta/Crockett and exploring around us.  The highlight was the Grapeland Safari.  We have passed this place for years but never had time to stop.  It was hilarious and the TUB of food went rather quickly between the camels, donkeys, cows, yaks, pigs, bison, gazelles, ostrich, zebras, etc.  Once we finished the driving portion, we were able to do a small petting zoo with goats, pigs, turkeys, large tortoise, guineas, etc. We even got to hold a 2 week old baby goat and piglets!  SO MUCH FUN!
