Diaries of the Happy Sanitarium met up with us at the zoo. The kids rolled down hills, rode on the carousel, ate cotton candy, chased each other in circles, played in all the little caves and animal burrows, climbed on all the animal statues, and occasionally stopped to look at the other animals.
Natalie, that's the very same fox cave that you and I got our picture taken in 10 1/2 years, 2 husbands and 5 kids ago : )

Back in February when Nora turned two, I allowed myself to be convinced her pleas for a turtle for her birthday should be given in to.
And there they are. A girl and her turtle.

Friday evening we moved over to Uncle Ted and Aunt Lynne's. All three of Grandpa's daughters were in town along with 6 out of 8 grand kids and all 5 greats.
Nora and her cousin Jaylin got to know each other. Jaylin is the happiest kid you'll ever meet. And he doesn't have a "stop" or "pause" button either. He's alllll go! I wanted to be kissing his cheeks the whole weekend.
Sunday we had family pictures taken and I will try to post some of those shots soon. Family photos are always good for a laugh!
