Philadelphia Zoo

The kids are off this week for spring break. We decided to go to the zoo today since the weather was so nice. Lots of other people had the same idea - it was packed!
These are some pictures from our visit. Emma took the animal shots & I took the people shots.

Here's a cute picture of Mushu. I love his underbite. Mushu will be 5 yrs old in a couple weeks. This picture happens to be on my work computer so I'm able to post it. Still working on going through the pics at home.

Wow...posting two days in a row!

Yesterday when trying to update this blog I added the follower option. It lets you know who is following your blog. So far no followers. That can make a person feel unwanted :o) Of course, I haven't been very good at updating so why would anyone need to follow it. Maybe in a week or so I'll let friends and family know my plans to keep it updated.

Today is my niece Bridget's Birthday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY BRIDGET!!! She's 17...for some reason that makes me feel quite old. I know she doesn't read this blog but just in case...I'm sorry your gift will be arriving late. I'm mailing it (along with an extra surprise) today. It's been sitting in the back of my car waiting to be mailed and I just kept forgetting.... I hope you have a great day!

General Update

I've been bad at keeping this blog updated. My hope/goal is to try and post even the smallest update each week. Our lives are very full so there is always something to write about.

In the past few months everyone except me has celebrated a birthday. Kids are now 10, 12 & 16. No more single digit ages for the kids. By the end of this year we will have two teens in the house. Two teenage GIRLS. Yes, I am scared.

I will hopefully post some pictures from the past couple months and, if I get lucky, some videos. We ended up with a virus on our home computer - fortunately Jim had recently copied all the files, pictures included. I just need to go through all the disks and find the pics I want to post.

My other goal for this blog is to get it looking a bit nicer. I changed the template today. That pink color was really hurting my eyes. Blue is a little more pleasant but it still needs some umph!

I'm trying out Smilebox and this is my first attempt at a scrapbook. I took Emma and James to Dutch Wonderland in July and these are a few pictures from it.
