Journaling reads: "While on vacation at the beach, we met up with dad and he took the three of us fishing. This was Spencer's first chance to use his new, "real" fishing rod. He didn't catch anything, but got a few bites and had fun trying. When he got frustrated, Dad passed on some wise words: "If you always caught something, it wouldn't be called fishing, it'd be called catching." We also got to see an alligator and a boat that got stranded during low tide."
Our neighborhood finally put in a playground so we went and checked it out a few weekends ago. Spencer's a little old for it, but he made the best of it. We had fun getting Cooper to slide down the slide. Rio wasn't as cooperative. After Spencer started to get bored just playing, he asked me to make up obstacle courses for him to do...so that made it a little more fun for him. We actually stayed there for quite a while. And it's really close to the house, which is nice.
I took a TON of pictures but had to include this silly one of Cooper with his tongue just kind of sticking out. I also like the picture of Matt & Rio. Even though it's blurry, I think it shows how Rio's always on the go when we're outside.
1 - Me & Brigitte. In my defense, I hadn't been on vacation yet and she just got back from Jamaica. She kind of had an advantage with the whole tan thing (though I'm lily white most of the time anyway).
2 - Sydney playing in the pool
3 - Dalton had just learned how to jump in with this ring. I love how this picture captures the splashes.
4 - My handsome husband
5 - Spencer playing in the pool. Thought this was a cool "action shot"
- Zebra...this guy came out in the road, behind our truck and in front of the one behind us, and wouldn't move. It was funny.
- There were a lot of emus there (and those are pretty spooky animals) but this was only white one we saw. Had bright blue eyes too.
- They had several beautiful, bright birds
- The turtles and the rabbits were in cages beside each other and they had them labeled "the tortoise and the hare"...clever.
- I think this is a mountain goat
These are all "baby" pictures. We were there at a great time because almost all the animals had little babies running around. Here you see baby deer, baby pig, some kid of big baby (not sure what it is)...and then my favorite picture: the baby emu peeking it's head out from within its mom's feather.
