These Two Are Amazing


Growing up with brothers and sisters--or even just friends as close as siblings--is the best.



Sure, in the years to come, they will annoy each other incessantly. 


But in India,


Thailand,


Or the USA, 


These two love each other. 


Completely.

Tigers Eat Babies in Thailand


We were not impressed by the way the THOUSANDS of crocodiles the Tiger Zoo in Thailand were treated,

But most of the Tigers seemed to be treated well


(other than the drugged adult tiger with whom you could take your picture--we declined)


(Although the "experiment of tiger cubs nursing off pig mothers to make them more docile seemed a little Frankensteinish.) 

But the baby tigers were definitely not drugged or docile...


As Reed almost discovered! 

After the Incident of the Almost Missing Baby Fingers,


Reed kept his distance from the Baby Tigers.

Although for the $1 a bottle of milk cost, Rebekah insisted on feeding,


 Feeding,


And feeding the Baby Tigers repeatedly. 


(DISCLAIMER: Reed was never actually in danger of losing his fingers; Grandparents and Grandparent-Types can stay calm.)

(Hurry Up, Then) Rest

Yeah, our presence online has been pretty scarce for 3 or 4 months. 
We had to pack up our apartment in South Asia, 
Go to a bunch of meetings, 
Fly back to the USA, 

And for the past month we have been trying to REST.

Sitting around the yard each morning,


Not wearing our shirts, and eating whatever we want,


Eating on the couch while watching TV,


Hanging out in our new apartment,


Doing a little bit of work,


Waiting on football season,


Swimming (a LOT of swimming),


And working on our tans.
