Wisconsin trip

The following pictures were taken this last week on our trip to Wisconsin to see some Ugandan friends there. We really had a great time and it was a great reunion. I'm going to put a summary of the pictures up here because the program is not working right and will not allow me to put captions w/ the pictures.
1. & 2.- The first couple of pictures show Evan with some metal cows in Iowa at the beginning of the trip.
3. We should put this guy in the circus.
4. At a roadside park in Wisconsin.
5. Evan dancing with his new friend, Lizzie.
6. The kids (Evan, Zion and Lizzie) in the stroller on a stroll on the nature trail on the way to the lake.
7. Solomon, Cissy, Zion and Lizzie. It was so great to see these guys. It had been almost 8 years since I had seen Solomon and Cissy and obviously, the first time to see their kids. It was also nice for Christine and Evan to meet some new friends.
8. Cynthia with Evan and Christine.
9. The boys.
10. Lake Nabugabo 2.0. Back in Uganda we had retreats at Lake Nabugabo and this was a brief replay of that. I'm not sure of the name of this lake but Madison is full of them.
11. Walking and holding hands.
12. At the Madison zoo.
13. Me and Solomon at a Brewers game in Milwaukee. This was our third country and continent. I met him in Uganda, spent some time with him and his family in England on the way home and met him again in Wisconsin. God is a faithful God.
14. Us again, me in a Uganda soccer shirt and Solomon in a USA one.
15. The whole gang.

recent pics and a video

Here are some recent pics and a video. I'm just going to write the description for everything here at the beginning because it tends to jumble everything up anyway. The first couple of pictures were taken during a visit from Uncle Paul, Aunt Laura and cousin Audrey. There is one of Evan listening to Uncle Paul reading and there is another one of Audrey and Evan watching Sesame Street together. The next one show Evan at a park last Saturday during Ginga's Art Event in the park. The last 3 pictures or so were taken at Evan's first baseball game last Friday at the St. Joseph Mustangs (a local college wood bat team). A great time was had by all and the Mustangs won!
The video shows Evan doing the 'Elmo dance'. You'd have to be a regular viewer of Sesame Street to know what I am talking about.

recent videos/pics and Happy Summer!

Here's a couple of recent pictures that we took. The first one shows me and Evan in his little turtle pool. This is something that he really likes. The 2nd picture shows me with a 3 pound catfish that I caught last week. While this isn't the biggest fish I have ever caught, I am quite sure it is the biggest catfish I have ever caught.

Lastly, are some videos. The first one shows him sliding during his 2nd bday celebration. The 2nd one shows him at his bday celebration saying that he is 2 and trying to hold his fingers up to show that he is two as well. The third one shows him baaing like a sheep and hopping. I hope you have enjoyed these all.
