Lions and Tigers and Bears

We went to the zoo today! Grandma Linda, Megan and Mallory Cahill all joined in the fun. Addy's favorite were the elephants and Lilly LOVED the dolphin show. It was a treat, but all the fun had the girls exhausted! Here are some of our favorite pictures from the day...



As for other milestones this week. The girls got asked out on their first date. After the zoo, we had the girls playing in their exersaucers on the driveway and 2 of the neighborhood boys drove up in their electric Jeep. One of them (I'll keep anonymous for future embarassment), asked "We were wondering if the babies could take a ride with us in our car." I told them I didn't think the babies could ride safely in the car and maybe next summer. He then sped off in a huff. I think this is signs of future trouble... Other milestones--Addy and Lilly now have 6 teeth! Their toothy grins are priceless. They are also working on clapping, waving and formulating words. No wonder they are so tired. Here's a video of Addy in the walker on the driveway. Please refrain from leaving me comments about how dangerous these toys are, I'm fully aware, but at this point I use them just so they are contained for short periods of time. I figure they are safer than eating rocks, grass and mulch.

Addy is a woman on a mission! She is soo cute! I think she was on her way to that little boy's house that asked her and Lilly out.

Aimee and Jeremy- you better watch out for those girls! That little boy in his jeep is just the beginning!

I have a shotgun on the mantle...and if any young man want's to ask my girls out....that's perfectly fine. I would like to first have a brief conversation in my family room and put him in the chair facing the mantle!

Jeremy - Dial it down with the shotgun! Girls - you did not inherit your love of animals from me! But I am happy you like the zoo so much. Lilly - you are a little walking machine aren't you? You and your sister are adorable in yellow! When are you going to wear your cute little yellow outfits from your aunt Cat? Addy - you are in such a hurry. Did you see a shoe sale at saks - I normally only move that quickly during a sale at Barneys! I hope you girls have a great weekend!

They are so cute! It looks like you had so much fun at the zoo. We want to take Chase but just haven't gotten around to it yet.
As for the walker, I am totally getting one. I keep thinking how much energy Chase would burn off in one of those things. He's gotten kind of bored with the Around-We-Go so I think a walker would really be interesting to him.
