Zoo Day

The boys and I went to the zoo today with Patrica and the boys. It was a special Wake Up With the Animals event. They do this at least once a year. We went last year too. Members get free McDonald's breakfast and a chance to get into the zoo early. The big deal this year is that the new elephant exhibit is open. I'll let Patricia blog about the elephant experience, but wanted to share some happy boy pics from the zoo. It rained, and we ended up only seeing Africa, but I think it was well worth it. Look at these cute faces!

The rest of the pics are here. For more information on the zoo, go here.

School Picture Day

Today is school picture day. The boys will get their pics taken alone and together. It was quite the fiasco last night looking for just the right shirts to wear and finding blue jeans that didn't have worn out knees. I tried to find new long sleeve shirts at Wal-Mart and Target without success. Johnny is going through a 'I won't wear short sleeves' phase:-( Luckily, I had these shirts in the closet in roughly the right sizes. Joey gave the thumbs up all excited about the horse embroidery, and Johnny agreed to his too. Yippee! Oh, we've had fights in previous years/sessions over what Mom wanted the boys to wear vs. what they wanted. Johnny's shirt ended up being a 5T and a little too big in the sleeves and body, but there was no turning back this morning. I took these pics before school. The boys were excited, and so was Mom.

The rest of the pics are here including Mom and Joey's parent lunch and Johnny being reunited with Buster.
