We went to the zoo today and took Craigs two nephews. I have been watching them while their mom works. All the boys play really well together and they have so much fun. Jaxon is 4 years old, Ayden 3, Mason 25 months, and Gibson is 23 months. I was kind of nervous about taking all of them but we made it thru the day with no meltdowns, everyone was nice & listened, and they all slept the whole way home. Everyones favorite were the bears cause they were fighting. We even saw the red panda. It is always up the tree when we go so the 2 older boys thought that was cool. The babies didnt seem to care. Craig got some really cute pictures. It was a nice day. There was a lady in the reptile house with a baby in a front carrier, one on a leash, and 2 others running around screaming. I was standing next to her and she said, to her husband, " Why would anyone have 4 boys! Oh my gosh! Try birth control." Nice. Oh well. To each their own. I would much rather have 4 well behaved boys then have to invest in leashes for my kids.

We were supposed to close on the house tomorrow but the mortgage guy faxed the papers to the tiltle company and it got jammed. He didnt notice for a few hours so they never got them. We are going to make sure he has his helmet on and a special helper next time. ;) Now we are closing Thursday morning.


  1. You are an awesome mom to take four little guys to the ZOO! Glad you had fun. Love the pics!

  2. Fun pictures. WAY brave taking four little boys to the zoo. You are great. Melody

  3. And 4 boys.... oh my! I think watching 4 young boys at a zoo may just be my definition of hell. Kudos to you for getting them all out with no broken limbs or snake bites.
