The first week of May, Aaron went to Texas for his nephew's blessing. Jake (Aaron's younger brother) and Julia have an adorable 2-year-old girl Lydia and now have a beautiful baby boy as well -- Ethan Michael Parks.
Aaron's Mom holding baby Ethan:
Our sister-in-law Bobbi also went and brought her little boy Jaxson. Here are some cute pictures of Lydia and Jaxson playing together:
One day, Aaron went shooting with his brother and some friends. He was pretty stoked that he got to fire some semi-automatic weapons. Here's one of him that is rather frightening (due to the red-eye and crazy face he is making) but I think it captures just how excited he was. Boys and guns...go figure.
One night for dinner, Jake made crawdads (a type of freshwater crawfish that look like mini lobsters) I enjoy seafood...but I don't know if I could have enjoyed this meal:
Here is a video of the crawdads pre-cooking time...crrrrreeeepy.
Aaron absolutely loved it though and said it was delicious. Boys and weird food...go figure.
I'm sad that Finn and I couldn't go on this trip too, but I'm glad that we could send Aaron so he could have some good bonding time with his brother, shoot guns and eat crazy food!
