Whipping Cream

This week I bought a small container of heavy whipping cream. For the last 3 nights I've whipped the cream and enjoyed eating it with strawberries and when those are gone, by itself! Tonight was the best, I added some chocolate and ate it with some strawberries we got at the Farmer's Market today. SO good! I almost forgot that I also own (thank you Lindsay!) one of those stainless steel cream whippers! I've got to keep that thing filled up!

Have you ever dialed 9-1-1 before? I have a few times in my life, never for help for myself, but others I'll see, usually as I'm driving by. One time we were driving over Hwy 17 and on the side of the road saw a lady wailing on a guy, with another lady getting ready to jump in, I think to help the other lady out. I think (my memory is getting foggy) we pulled over at the next turn out, but we couldn't really see anything. Anyway, I thought it was worthy enough to call and report the incident.

Today, I called to report (what looked like) a bum fight. We were driving on River St. (next to the river) and cars started slowing ahead of us. Finally we see 1 guy on one side of the street yelling at another guy on the other side of the street. We passed them and I turned around to see the 1 guy taking some swings at the other guy. The other guy got away and was yelling for help. We pulled into the parking lot and I called 9-1-1. One of the things I hate about calling 9-1-1 is that there is an echo, have you ever noticed that? Anyway, the lady asked me to describe the guys and it took me a while to say that the 1 attacking was African American male and the other one was a Caucasian male. It would have been a lot easier to say the black guy was chasing the white guy, but I didn't want to be accused of racially profiling or something like that. What is this PC world doing to me?? Anyway, as we were walking downtown, we could see through the parking structure and there were 2-3 police cars attending to the dispute. Crazy!

Have you ever really looked into the life of an ant? It is pretty fascinating. Here is the link to find out everything you could have ever wanted to know about them. I was watering the lawn today and noticed that I had disrupted an ant home, so I got closer to check them out. There were ones with wings, ones carrying eggs, and regular ones just trying to get away from the water. Pretty disgusting. I had goosebumps then and when I was reading about them. Even though the Bible praises the hard work of the ant (Prov. 6:6), they still gross me out.

Bad Blogger

Yes, I know I am a BAD Blogger. But, hopefully these pictures will make up for the last month of not posting anything!
Here is our mini-Giants fan. She went to her first game last Thursday, one of the hottest days in the city ever! Bummer!

On Friday, we went to the Aerospace Museum at the old McClellan AFB. The boys were so excited to see real airplanes, it was pretty fun! Gianna had a nice time in her car seat.

Ezra's favorite part of the museum was the gift shop, where Grandma bought him an F/A 18.

This is Ezra's favorite outfit. He calls it his, "pilot's outfit." He always wears it to school, I get in trouble if I forget to have the shirt washed. Thankfully school is only 2 days a week.
We got home on Sunday and the Legge's stayed with us for a couple nights. We always love spending time with their family and wished they lived closer! Their kids are Autumn (5 yrs. old), Ben (3 1/2 yrs. old) and Peter (4 1/2 mos.).

I'll try to be better about posting, really...
