I had a fabulous time checking out all the different fish. I can see why Mommy trained to become a fisheries biologist. And to be honest, she may have been more excited than me to go to the aquarium! But I sure enjoyed seeing all the fish and touching the starfish in the "touch pools".
That night we went out for Mexican food and went to a great playground that had everything from a suspension bridge to a giant slide. I had a blast going down the giant slide and got so confident that I was doing it by myself by the end! Of course Mommy forgot her camera in the hotel room... so no pictures from the park. The next day we went to the beach in Santa Cruz. There's nothing better than playing in the sand and water on a warm day. I played in the sand with Isabelle and in the waves with Daddy. It was fabulous!
We couldn't have asked for a better vacation. The only thing that would have made it better would have been if it was longer. Hope you all enjoyed your weekend as much as we did!

And today, Daddy felt inspired to do something with the bounty of figs growing on our trees in the backyard. So he decided to make jam. But not just any jam. Fig Orange Spice jam (click here for recipe). He ended up having so many figs that we now have 25 jars of this fabulous concoction. Warm this stuff up and pour it over vanilla ice cream. Or put it on top of some gooey brie cheese. Or smear it over some pancakes.... YUM!

Hi everyone... Molly here. Well, I have the distinct feeling that my life is about to change as I know it. My mommy and daddy shared some exciting news with me this week. I'm still processing what it's all going to mean to me. But it is definitely nice to know that God heard all of our prayers! Check out the video below to better understand what I'm talking about...

Anyway, I'll leave you with some pictures from my latest adventure in painting. You'll notice that I really get into my artwork!

Mommy and Daddy are doing well too. We're gearing up for a string of mini-vacations this summer that include a trip to Monterey/Santa Cruz with friends, a trip to see my Grandma and Grandpa Belknap, and a week-long international adventure to Canada to visit Mommy's family. All this by the end of July! I can't wait to see everyone! I think Mommy and Daddy are looking forward to the break. Hope you all get a break this summer!
Also, just a quick prayer request for my Uncle Oscar from our Thursday Bible Study group. He's in the hospital right now with a burst appendix. Not good. He's got quite the abdominal infection brewing and is in a lot of pain, so please keep him in prayer! Thanks!
