San Antonio!

I found out that a friend was getting married IN TEXAS..... since there are only 3 temples I thought I would make the trip!  It was the farthest one away.... 5 hours.  That really is NOTHING.... compared to one friend Heika from California who drove to Nebraska for our wedding with a few siblings!  
     I was determined to do it! Thanks to a good friend who is  very flexible work, getting her graphic design business going, kindly came with us!!!  Just the 4 girls! To adults and two little ones....what an adventure!

I really know how to pack it all in!  That morning we had a Joy School meeting, then promptly after that we picked up Cynthia! Then on to San Antone.  We met up at the Witte Museum and played with Katherine and Anabel Pearson! This is my marathon mama....  We got to finally meet cute little 6 mo. old JP too! Then on to see Great-grandma- Adams! 

The next day was the wedding and we got up ate a yummy breakfast of all you can eat----ahem---yes, I had to take advantage of the fruit too: and then off to the wedding.  Sweet Cynthia took the girls outside of the temple since they we're allowed in. She  really handled them well, under a tree the whole time to keep cool! What friend and trooper!! Every time we had a chance to take a small break to eat, we ate. WE ate.   We realized that it burned a lot of calories lifting, chasing those little munchkins ... especially in an area where we were out of our comfort zone--- a living room etc. for example.   Let's just say, Reagan had fun at "some restaurant" where she found a giant cockroach  and cricket to follow.   I for sure gave both kids baths each day!
   I'm really procrastinating...or avoiding cleaning my room..... I guess some things really don't change.

Baby Bird...I mean NEWBORN

So last night when Steph came home from her 'outting' with a guy...she was just walking up the front porch and saw a little bird trying to flap around. It could only barely walk. It still has fuzz on its wings. 
The neighbor's cat strolls all over and I was for SURE going to take it in. So I did. I then had to read about what to feed it. I called a couple neighbors, animal services, autobon  not german..just the bird watching thing--or something locally...nothing. So, I read how to make a concoction of stuff that I food-check, hard-boiled egg yolk- check, meal worms-check (left over from my beta fish, hot I had to learn how to pry it's little beak open and force the food down it's mouth. I became its 'mommy'.

I was determined to help this little creature live through the night. So at 2 am I set my alarm to go off and fed it...yes, like a newborn. It seemed barely breathing...this morning, at 6am it was more alert and had even had 'movements' yeah! It was being nourished!! I'm so glad!! 

I just put it outside, near it's nest, in a diaper box (it's home inside of a home) with a paper napkin nest. It is neat, that cliff swallows are INSECT they need the protein for nourishment.

It was neat to even let Courtney pet it! !! I'll have to post pictures soon!
