Our Lives Lately

It seems that lately we've been on the go-go-go. It's good for me to get out of the house, and the kiddos seem to enjoy our outings just fine. :) Here's some of what's been going on in our lives.

Savannah and Libby couldn't be fancier as they head to a Fancy Nancy birthday party.
They had such a great time.

Xander enjoys his first ice cream cone. This picture totally missed the delight he was showing
when I handed it to him. This is his "mmmmmm." I think he'll never be the same.

Miss Maren knows how to smile for the camera,
and the ice cream doesn't hurt.

This is how the big kids show that they love ice cream.
Poor Hudson and Libby had to eat a good lunch of grilled cheese before
they were allowed the treat.

When Pichie and Andrea visited, I didn't get pics of all the kiddos,
but when Elijah and Xander loved one another like brothers, I had to grab the camera.

So, we went to the zoo this morning, and as we waited for Aunt Sarah we peeked in a window at baby reptiles and Libby asked, "Do you think they have any baby alligators?" I told her I didn't know, but I didn't see any, and suddenly the empty tank next to the turtles we were watching was filled with water and a fearless man dropped 6 baby alligators in right before our eyes. We were amazed that they had no interest in biting him as he filled their tank with rocks and plants, but instead they swam around watching us until we left. They were pretty cute, as far as alligators go.

We sat at a table and had lunch right here. Then we walked through the cat complex
and when we came back around the tiger was perched up right above the table. We were kind of glad he didn't do it while we were eating, we would have been a little startled. :)
