Catching Up…As Usual ;)

So I haven’t posted in a while once again, sorry about that.  We’ve been busy here settling in to the new neighborhood, making new friends, going to birthday party after birthday party, hosting our own parties, etc.

The kiddos and I headed down to the Rose Festival a couple of weeks ago, and I intended on taking my camera, but after juggling the kids and the stroller and my purse and all that while going from ride to ride, I’m actually glad I didn’t!  I did however take some pics of Lindsay’s face painting when we got home, so you can at least see that.  The kids had a blast going on all those kiddy rides, and are already looking forward to County Fair Season.

This past weekend, the whole fam headed to the Zoo for some Father’s Day fun.  It was the perfect day for it, surprisingly not crowded, nice mild weather, picnic packed and lots of fun had by all.  We ate while watching the Birds Of Prey Show, and, being stationed right by one of the landing platforms, had to duck a few times to avoid being flown into!  Needless to say, the kids thought that was the coolest.  After every bird flew, Emery would clap and say, “YAY Birdies!”  We then hopped on the Zoo Steam Engine and took a ride through the forest, over to the Rose Garden.  We played for a bit at the huge playground they have right down the road from the roses, and then meandered through the heavenly scented paths of the garden.  I wish my house smelled like that.  :)  Lindsay and Emery had to smell each and every rose that was at their level, and then went around making piggy noises, smelling everything in sight: benches, trees, bricks.  You get the picture.  Goofballs.  We then hopped back on the train (we got to ride the silver bullet train this time though, and with Emery being so into trains right now, you can imagine how much he enjoyed this) and zoomed off, back to the zoo.  We headed home, tired and happy, had dinner, kiddos took baths and headed off to bed, Barney and I soaked in the hot tub and settled in for a well deserved rest.  A great way to spend a Father’s Day in my opinion.  Hope your weekend was as enjoyable!

    Heather…always enjoy the pictures of your beautiful children. Sounds like you have been keeping real busy since I left. How did the garage sale go…I saw some of the pictures on Chloe’s site?

    We are looking forward to seeing you in August.

    Love to all,
