we've gone to the zoo. an adventure to say the least. took both kids by myself on probably one of the most humid days we've had so far (humidity and i do not get along...especially now that i'm in my third trimester) and both of them wanted to walk - of course in opposite directions. once we got that figured out and the hugely pregnant mom got to stop running after children things went great. we had fun looking at all the animals and trying to see what we could find. surprisingly most of them were out and lying around whatever water feature was in their enclosure. mia's favorite is still the snake house. don't know where that came from, don't know how long it will last but every time she's asked what her favorite animal is her consistant answer is "giraffes and snakes". oh well. =)
checking out the farm animals inside the barn
we've been playing outside ... alot! our favorite spots are the beach, the walking park that's close to our house, any park we can find (the definition of a park to a 3 year old and a 19 month old means the area has play equipment and at least a few slides and preferably some swings!) and our own backyard. as you can see, we're not all that picky as long as we're out.
we also got to see pete's youngest brother graduate from high school. congrats jimmy! we're so proud of you. now look out college here he comes! this is him with mom and dad.
