We enjoyed the wildlife park that we visited in Australia and I am having so much fun remembering our time there as I scrap those animals. The echidna's were so funny looking with their needle type nose!

The Dog Whisperer

When we were in Australia, one of our missionaries, Phil Waters, had the most beautiful dog named Buddy. Pastor Jackson is not a dog person, but Buddy took a liking to him and it was so funny to watch. If truth be told, I think Pastor took a liking to Buddy too!

Old Baldy

The lighthouse on Bald Head Island is known as "Old Baldy". We are enjoying visiting the different lighthouses in North Carolina this summer. Since we used most of our vacation time in April visiting Australia, seeing lighthouses on Saturdays during the summer makes it seem like we are still having some vacation time!
