Field trips, Football, and Fancy Footwork!

Just wanted to take a minute and post a couple of pics. Last Friday, I took Hannah and Adam to the Montgomery Zoo on a field trip with Hannah's class. Nana met us there to help me watch Adam so that I could participate as much as might be necessary with Hannah. As it turned out, she was far too interested in her friends to care that I was on the field trip at all- but we still had a fun day. Also, yesterday I climbed up into our attic to retrieve another round of hand-me-downs for the twins that we put up from Hannah and Adam, and I found the little Alabama romper that Steven and Jennifer gave Adam for his first Christmas. I decided that there was never a more appropriate time for that than right now! Look how cute he is! Ava has decided to really walk now. She seems to have decided she'd rather do that than crawl, so she walks usually 15-20 steps before giving up. I'll try to get some video and post it on here soon. Until then, assume that I am far too busy chasing her around! :)

The Rock Ranch

Yesterday we went to The Rock Ranch, which is owned by Chick-fil-A's founder, Truett Cathy, for the first of its 2008 Fall Family Fun Days. Chick-fil-A sent us passes so that we could treat some of our raving fans to a fun day as well, and several families from Columbus were able to enjoy the beautiful weather and family time. We had a great time and hopefully will get to go back again soon when we can maybe just take the two older children and allow them uninterrupted play time. I am posting some pics from yesterday- the ones on the cow bench seem especially appropriate for our family!

We've had a busy few weeks lately with both of the older kids starting school and the babies turning one... its been a while since I've blogged on here and I've got a lot of new pictures to post. I'm going to do one slide of just some fun pics I've taken lately of the kids and then one of some of the projects Daniel has been doing around the house. He recently made our fish pond bigger, as one of our koi had three babies and since they grow so large, we thought it was important to give them all the room they'd need. Also, for the last few days we've been working in the kids bathroom to turn it from cartoonish jungle animals to something that would be nicer for guest at our home. Surprisingly the kids like it better now, too! Ava has been trying to walk some lately, and has figured out how to stand herself up from the floor without pulling up on things. Brody is now deciding that he can let go of things and stand for a moment before he sits down. They both got riding toys for their birthday, and the funniest thing is to watch them push each other around- I love that they play together already! Adam is doing great in Pre-K and we just can't believe how smart he's getting- he's starting to tell us words in spanish lately! Hannah is loving first grade and we couldn't be happier with her school. She had her first soccer game on Saturday and it was a lot of fun watching her and her buddies really play hard- we think they even won! And Daniel and I.....well....I guess we can sleep when we're old!
