Fun with NC Friends

The Graus made a pilgrimage to Athens! Four kids under five under our roof in the rain...and we're all still recovering.

Couple #1: Jackson and Katie

Couple #2: Taylor and Ben

Queen of the Hill at the playground!

Waiting oh so patiently for the world's best greasy burgers

Catching Up...

I've been super lazy with posting pics lately. We've been laying pretty low, then the kids and I went to Hilton Head last week and the Graus visited us later that weekend. A New Year's Resolution is to get better about the blog, but Facebook always seems to win...

Making a mess before bed

Ben making a pretend scary face...Todd making a real scared face

Brotherly love...

Making Ben's Valentine box for school

Todd made him a fabulous potato heart stamp

At the "interactive kids museum" in Hilton Head...Astronaut Ben

Working at the grocery store...

Down the slide...

Today we went to...

...the Zoo, and the kids had a blast! It got crowded fast but the animals were great. Ben liked the lions the best, but in second and third were the Pandas (since we watched Kung Fun Panda II yesterday) and the Lemurs (since they look like King Julian from Madagascar)...good thing we have quality cartoons to teach Ben animal appreciation (:

Waiting patiently on line to see the pandas...

Leaving the panda's house...Ben was psyched that Baby Po was eating bamboo!

Before the zoo got scary crowded...

At Meercat Manor

Ben at one of two cannons at the entrance to Grant Park...
you really can't go many places down here without seeing a cannon.

Too cool Katie 

Post zoo, post dinner, front yard football.
And that's a day!
