painting class in Germantown (which is right near Memphis) where you could submit a picture of your pet and an artist would sketch it on a canvas for you to paint. You could also bring wine and snacks. The proceeds went to the Street Dog Foundation. Wine, painting, a good cause, and Libby? I was so in. Luckily my Aunt and Uncle who live in Germantown were going to be home and we were able to visit and stay with them.

|He loved opening the cabinets under my Aunt and Uncle's bar|
|Itching to get in the water|
|Loved his first time in the pool|

|My other Aunt and cousin Bussy came to visit while we were there.|
|James once again trying to get in the pool.|
|James' first baseball game|
|We went to the Memphis Redbirds game to watch Chris Carpenter pitch (he's a pitcher for the St. Louis Cardinals)|
|Of course Joseph wouldn't sit with us.|
|Libby ready to paint her masterpiece|

|Showing off our artwork. So much fun!|
It was a great weekend away. I can't wait to get down to Memphis again to visit everyone. Libby has started running and we are talking about doing a color run or a beer run together.
In less upbeat news, I would like to ask for your thoughts and prayers as I go through something that is leaving me feeling very broken down. It's not a health issue...just emotional. I'm working to get through some very dark feelings and trying to get back to my mostly upbeat self. I thank you for your prayers.
