Today we met up with a lot of friends for some fun at the zoo.  It was a great day and we had so much fun.  Can't wait to see you all again.


L to R: Kelly, me, Susanna, Kelly, Amber, Karie, Felicitas, Erin, Melissa, Colleen … phew.

Marisol getting in touch with her inner goat.  So gentle, soooo gentle.

A fun game of follow the leader.


Ooh, another goat … and a very wet bottom.  I don't even want to think about what she may have sat in.


GET ME OOOUUUUUUUT!!!!!!!!!!!!   Mmmmm, pretzels – they're mine, all mine, you CAN'T have any!

Jay – I can't even think of a caption for this ha ha.


Jay and the gorilla.


Taking a little break for lunch.


Marisol sniffing the plants, apparently they smell divine.  I have a BALL … so many balls, so little time.  Each time she picked up one she'd scream BALL.  Flynn found one little ball and threw it over and over again and no matter where he threw it he would always find the exact same one and throw it again.

This was around the time I realized we should go home for naps.

We had a great time today with you guys. I can’t believe you got these photos up so quickly! I’m still working on trying to get 4th of July photos up. Thanks to your son Jay who graciously held the door for all us mommies with strollers. What a big help he must be for you!

Wow you sure had a gigantic group of friends! How bout I fly out and do a Tupperware party with you all? LOLIt looks like you had a great time! I’m impressed that Jay doesn’t seem terribly bored being so much older than the other kids. What a good big brother!

Hey, great pics. We have a similar theme, I just put pics of goats on my blog as well.

I just had another thought about your group of friends. I’m pretty sure that’s a whole Relay For Life team too. Wanna come to our Relay Aug. 8th? I got sucked into chairing the event this year with a friend, the kids’ll have fun and really California is super close to Missouri…compared to other places.
