We took a road trip to Atlanta this past Saturday with some friends. We have been meaning to take Jax to the asian marked over there ever since we brought him home. He was so excited to see all the familiar food! We came home with a lot of tasty items including a seasoning packet for his fave....yes, the chicken feet.  Now, I can finally cook the chicken feet in my freezer...I wish I was kidding but I'm not...there are these sad little feet frozen solid.....I digress
 We went to 3 different markets and if you ever go, the one on Buford Hwy is the best. They have food from every country you can imagine. We bought so much food we will be having a chinese feast soon,,my favorite are the dumplings!! Bert has been dining on Kimchi since we came home.(yuck) The produce was absolutely, totally amazing!! We bought several different things i.e sugar cane, mangos, plums, peaches, dragon fruit, star fruit, jack fruit and we bought a coconut. Yes, I know I can buy a coconut here at Publix but we were just caught up in a "fruit frenzy" (fruit ninja, anyone). Jax has went on and on about wanting to drink the milk from a coconut, we have tried to explain to him that the milk is gross, at least to me. Well, he tasted and finally believed us.
 On a side note, keep us in your prayers, Jax has outpatient surgery on Friday for reflux..the urine into the kidneys kind of reflux.
Eg does these horrible faces on purpose
We were showing Max how to take a "chinese" picture..peace sign.

July, so far...

We came home today from an awesome Alabama Revival Conference.  Definitely life changing services for me! Made me reevaluate some things in my life I had let slip and just overall was awesome!!
 My crew was all snazzed up but unfortunately over the course of 4 days these are all the photos I took.  (above)   That is, until I got home and Micah found a big copperhead under our jon boat...then I took these pics.(below) I debated doing a live capture and relocating it. (HA those who know me, know that is a joke).  Bert was working so I had the kids call Grandpa ASAP and he came over and blew it's head off. No, really it's head was GONE! Thank you dad!  Even though we live in the boonies we really don't get a lot of snakes, but this one scared the bejeebers out of me! I read you should plant Marigolds wherever you don't want snakes, well it is 2.5 miles from my house to interstate and I am wondering how many Marigolds I need!!
