I can't even remember when we went to the zoo but we did


Luke thinks this shirt is soo cool. Whats not soo cool about a giant flaming soccer ball? He picked it out himself at the T to the A to the R to the G to the....you get it. That giant blob is an orangatan named something. He is male. And I can't even remember when we went to the zoo, but having to mail in your pictures is like a surprise , "Oh yeah, forgot about that...Yeah, that was fun...wow, I forgot I took these pictures.."

How to load up three in a 2 kid stroller. Hold tight Baylie!

I like these little munchkins. Did I mention that we are going to Bama at the end of the week. My kids are thrilled. Like crying with joy, and even more excited that their dad is going too...think we don't go on enough vacations or what? Luke wants to know why California is not right next to Alabama. Good question. And Darby is excited to ride the airplane.

On a side note, my sweet family were good sports and actually went to the mall with me to shop a bathing suit (the Eddie bauer tankini was a disaster people!). I know, can you believe it. I'd almost forgotten what a mall was and that there is more than the kids play area. But as I walked in Nordstroms I was reminded of my wise friend Jackie who said that Nordstorms must be what heaven is like, but everything is free. True that Miss J. Now you are speaking to me. But even though my wonderful kids and husband accompanied me to various shops in search of the perfect one piece, I left feeling ...well, how bad does swimsuit shopping suck? So lets all just remember the cute zoo pictures.

Those lights in the dressing room never help swimsuit shopping! I feel your pain!
Have fun in AL! I don't think we have plans to go down there in the next couple of weeks, sorry we will miss seeing you. I'll let you know if any plans change though. Have fun at the beach!

i like the quote. its like that commercial with payton manning, he is like unless you are under 24 or a professional athlete, go buy some bigger shirts. like i threw out my clothes and now have like 10 pieces of one size up. makes the choosing a lot easier. and i am like, you don't like my clothes, you must have too many : )

oh yeah and i am all for pushing soccer cause brazilians are super short, but they pay them hundreds of millions of dollars to play in europe. go short sports players.

i like the nordstrom heaven analogy. i'm pickin up what you're throwing down. i agree about the lights in dressing rooms. i am always more successful buying bathing suits online.
