Happy 7th Month Catarina!

First off, let me apologize for not posting for about 3 months. I don't know how a person is supposed to find the time to do all that they feel needs to be accomplished in this busy, high-tech world. That being said, Facebook has been taking up most of my computer time and I have posted many photos there for those of you who use Facebook.

Okay, now to Catarina, I can't believe my baby is 7 months old already. Time is passing so quickly. We made a trip to Missouri recently for about a month. I have plenty of stories to document in her baby book from that trip. I think one of the most annoying at the time but hilarious now stories is from our first night on the farm in Salisbury. There was a huge thunder storm that night and the cows were roaming. I awoke to sounds of mooing coming from the outside of the camper and a steady rocking motion from time to time. I tried to ignore it and passed it off as the wind carrying the moos across the way and the wind rocking the camper. After awhile I realized it wasn't the wind. I peeked outside the window and I thought we were under attack! Cows were everywhere surrounding us! They were rocking the camper and the moos were really right outside! Of course due to the rain and the cows, when morning came the ground outside was a muddy, poopy mess. Flies everywhere because of the poop. Needless to say, the next night the cows were shut in the pasture.

Logan and Catarina took their first Ferry ride across the Missouri river while we were there. They got to see both sets of Grandparents, many aunts, uncles and cousins.
