Hurricane Ike

As many of you know, Cody was sent to the Galveston area after Hurricane Ike hit. He said the destruction was horrible and brought back many pictures of the devastation many of those that live on the Gulf Coast will being going home to. After seeing these I am pretty sure that living on the coast is something I can live without.

There were many more houses on this block. Only these 5 were left standing, the rest are as you can see completely gone...

This is the lion the guys helped get out of the church. The guys said the lion went willingly but the tiger, which we do not have a picture of, did not.

This is the cow the guys rescued from the second story of a home. Poor cow!

The guys used an airboat to get to many of the places to check for survivors. Praise the Lord they found a few and brought them to shelters.

General damage to the area, it is just awful to see in pictures I can't imagine being there in person.

This is the bridge the guys had to use to get onto the island. Yes, it was down to one lane and the others had been taken out by the waves. Scary...

Party Time!

This evening, Kylie went to a Luau Birthday Party for "The Boys" down the street. She had so much fun! The boys had a pool and of course cake, what more could a girl ask for. Even baby Josephina, the boys new little sister, enjoyed the festivities. What cuties they all are!

Family Fun Fair...

This afternoon was the "Family Fun Fair" at church. We stopped by for only a few minutes since it was really too hot to stay very long with a toddler. I would have to say that Ky's favorite part was the Camel. She loves animals, as long as Daddy goes to see them with her!

Goin' Bananas

There is a cool inside play place not far from our house filled with tons of inflatables and play areas for kiddos. The best thing is, it has air conditioning for those HOT Texas days. Kylie and her friend Ryan had a "Playdate" there the other day. It was worth every penny!

Eklutna Lake - Alaska

For one day only all of the Jones Kidlets were together! Even baby Tidbit in Jennifer's belly. What a great trip. We can't wait to go back during the winter sometime so we can hit the slopes. Well the bunny ones for me at least.
