Zoo - Loo

One of our favorite summer places is the Monroe Zoo! If you are within driving distance, you should go!  The Horn T Zoo is so much fun for the kids.  We go several times each summer they are open!!  Each time we have gone we learn so much!  You get your own "personal tour" of the animals and get hands on experience with many of them!  Below you will see the kids feeding Coco the monkey, petting Bella the bear,loving on their pregnant momma zebra, talking with their birds, and exercising with their porky-pines! It was a fun way to end our full weekend!

Family Fun Day!

This is a talent that she is pretty proud of.  This also helped us discover that her dad can do the same thing.  Genetics?! 

Charli lost tooth #4 at the Central City Subway this weekend!  

We took a family "work" trip to GI on Saturday and found our own fun!  The kids enjoyed some new scenery...and a Saturday that didn't include rain!

We even found a train to ride!

It IS as much fun as it looks!  ;-)

We got to see Monsters University with friends this weekend too!  The theater was so full that we sat in three different rows - in two different sections :(  The kids enjoyed the movie though!

Charli * Maggie    (not pictured Cohen & Kadence)

Charli had a full week at camp this year.  The camp is just outside of town and was a full day M-F.  She was exhausted, but did so many fun things.  It was called "Deer Camp".  She got to canoe, learn archery, swim, etc.  All activities which were right up her alley! At the end of camp they handed out about 7 awards.  She was "lucky" enough to win the "most humorous" award and came home with her own banana trophy!  She giggled...and is pretty proud of it!

Charli also earned her orange belt last week!  (we had a BUSY week!)  She tested for this the week before getting to spend time with Aunt Rachelle out west, so she had to wait to find out!  It's amazing to watch their little minds & bodies work and learn! 

Happy Birthday Harper!

I have decided that if I wait to upload pictures from my "real cameras" this blog will never I am sure I will have old pictures to post when I finally get those pictures too!  

Harper had a super 4th birthday.  He felt like his birthday got to last two days because his daycare party was the day after his actual birthday...which was a-okay with him!


These types of pictures never get old!
Harper got a 4-wheeler for his birthday!  Charli was this age when she got hers, though it doesn't seem like it!  

It's the year for modes of transportation for Harper I guess!  Grandma & Grandpa B got his a fancy (John Deere) green scooter!  Now Charli, Harper, and Chad all have Razors to zip around the neighborhood on!  I am sure our neighbors loooooove that!  

Not sure there is anything better than a birthday waffle to wake up to!

Happy 4th Birthday Harper!!
