Well, I went back to the doctor today and learned nothing new. I am so frustrated with this whole situation. I just need everyone to pray that I find a good doctor that is more interested in finding the cause of my "crohns" rather than just wanting to medicate me for life.

Our newest family project is our new 100 gallon salt water fish tank. David's cousin Matt owns a fish store in Dallas called Aquarium Trading Company. Kirstyn loves going to his store and seeing all of the fish. It really is a lot of fun to learn about all of the different animals available for the salt water aquarium. We are in the set up process right now so all we have is the tank, water, salt, and sand. We special ordered the stand for the tank so that we could get one that is only 24" tall rather than the standard 30". That way Kirstyn could see into the tank better and be able to be more involved. We are very excited and I'm sure there will be lots of pictures of us working on the tank in the near future.
I wanted to try this effect...putting one picture on top of another one. Kind of neat. Anyway, David and I spent the last weekend of July at a marriage retreat with our Sunday School Class. We had a great time and as you can see the theme was Survivors...Commit, Commune, Communicate. It was nice to get away for a night and Kirstyn had a great time spending the weekend with Pappy and Dee Dee.
For another playgroup we went to the Fort Worth Museam. Kirstyn loved playing in the Kidspace where you can do lots of pretend play. She loved the grocery store and picked out lots of fruits and veggies and cheese...all her favorites and then she got to check herself out and bag her groceries. Too much fun.
Feeding the seagulls was really funny. Dee Dee had a hard time getting Kirstyn to share the biscuts! Kirstyn kept putting the biscuts in her mouth and laughing. We think she was enjoying taunting the seagulls. She did finally share with them and was excited about how close they got.
Kirstyn loved the dolphin show! She learned what a dolphin says ("e e-e-e-e") and she thought the whole time they were waving just at her. Pappy got her down on the front row and they had a blast! After the show we went down where you could see into the tank and the dolphin swam right by her. You can see in the picture that she and Pappy are right at the dolphin's face. :-)
