4 little penguins

Alternately titled: Hanieh and Williams wedding! Congrats to my beautiful Sister in Law and her new husband!

Everything was beautiful and went off without a hitch....except for Brian who didn't walk down the aisle without some help from an usher!

The beautiful bride and her groom

I love this pic...wish it was clearer! Look at Brian peeking around his cute!

Little ring bearers.

Field Trip #2---A SkyFari

We went all the way to Omaha, Nebraska for field trip the Omaha Zoo.
The Zoo would have been worth it all on it's own (an awesome zoo--you should go), but luckily we didn't have to turn around and make the 7 1/2 hour trip back after our adventure. We actually went up there to see friends (some we haven't seen since we moved) and to spend the weekend with them. But since we were up there we figured another field trip was called for.

It was a CRAZY day...which is generally how things go when I'm with my friend C and our combined 7 (almost 8) kids....We saw the awesome aquarium and then gave into the whining and begging and took a ride on the new "SkyFari", which is basically a ski lift that takes you from the front of the zoo all the way to the back. It was slightly stressful to have an 18 month old on a ski lift above dangerous animals, but not quite as stressful as the rain, thunder, and lightning that began right at the end of the "lift"...The zoo of course promptly shut down the ride and left us stranded (with no stroller) at the furthest point away from our car in the pouring....I mean POURING rain. C and I took turns carrying Brian while walking, running, and even doing a little bit of dancing in the rain....We decided most moms would have been upset, maybe even a little angry at the situation...but one of the things that makes C and I friends is our ability to make the best of any situation...and we had a BLAST! Thanks for a great day C!

Before the rain....look at all those sweet smiles....we didn't actually get any after pictures...which is a good thing...we weren't looking very good!

Wordless Wednesday-pink blanket

Brian is slightly attatched to his blanket(s) (aka: Dee Dee). I have worked really hard to make sure he is attatched to SEVERAL Dee Dee's so that we won't be in big trouble if we lose one. Apparently that has transfered over to being attatched to any and every blanket he finds....even pink ones....poor Kate....her things are being taken even before she is here to defend herself!....But how cute is he???
