Outside fun

Hi All,

We have been having a great time being outside. One of our new favorite places to explore is Olbrich Gardens. That is where we went this morning. We met our friends Molly and Lucy there. There is a great little playground and lots of garden paths to explore. There were a lot more flowers in bloom since we were there last week. The fountains all had water in them as well. They all had a great time trying to throw things in the water and trying to catch the water in the fountain. There are butterflies painted along the paths for some reason, I'm not sure if they are used for decoration or to mark a certain path. The kids all loved trying to find the next one. They were getting so excited.

Yesterday we went to the zoo with Uncle Brett and JoJo. Haeven and Joe have a love/hate relationship. They are best buddies but watch out if they happen to want to same thing at the same time. Luckily yesterday it was more on the love side. :) All of the animals are out now except for the alligators and the giant tortoise. The kids all love riding the merry-go-round. Reese was hanging onto Uncle Brett so tight that he said he felt like one of the animals going up and down.

I know we do the same things week after week but the kids always have a great time. I just love seeing how they get so excited when they find out where we are going each day. I love taking them places so they can explore and learn by seeing the real world around them.
Sorry about the pictures. I haven't figured out how to rotate them yet. If anyone knows how please let me know. :)
