Zoo Day with Daddy

 The Polar Bear was swimming all over the place, and Adelaide
was wearing her cute new birthday boots (we had to make a
 rule that new birthday dollies stay in the car.) 

 Autry is a scary bear and Clarabelle spots a bird

 The dinosaur exhibit was done, so for some reason the zoo thought it would
be a good idea to have a decapitated taredactyl  hanging out on the zoo path.

You add Gibson and I to this picture and you can imagine the looks
we get from people. Sometimes I want to turn and say, "Yes it is true
I do have four kids 4 and under" 

 The elephant was very exciting for Adelaide

Randy got an iphone a couple of weeks ago and is enjoying all the fun things that it can do. These last four pictures were taken with one of the cool apps on his phone. It is amazing what technology can do these days.

Addie's "Birthday"

Birthday Clothes

 She was so excited about every present she opened.
Her favorite presents so far were her baby doll with a binky and bottle and 
a new pair of pink boots.

The girls playing with Addie's new toys. We have to keep reminding Claire
that these are Addie's new toys.

 She wanted all her new clips in her hair

     We celebrated Addie's 2nd birthday today. Her birthday isn't until October 11, but all the grandparents were able to come down this weekend so we treated today like her birthday. Adelaide had so much fun today. She got a new birthday outfit, lots of new clothes, 4 new dollies, a horse from Autry, hair clips,  and a new pair of boots. Addie had a lot of fun and was loving having so much attention.

Visiting the Dukes

We recently went to visit the Dukes in Jefferson. The kids love playing with Isaac and Adrie. I love talking with Shannon. The entire time we were there I barely even saw Isaac and Autry. They were playing outside in Isaac's stick fort, pretending to hunt deer, and playing pirate. Autry and Isaac are boy through and through. Meanwhile Claire and Adrie are inside playing dress up and putting make up on each other. Then there was Addie just wandering around the house. It was a lot of fun. The kids want to go down to Jefferson every day and play.
