OK. So I am throwing in the towel on trying to catch up on my blog posts with everything we did this summer. The summer is over and I haven't even begun to start in on what we did. So I will try to squeeze them in as side notes, but keep up on current events otherwise. Today we went to the Bohme's and had a wonderful time. They have a beautiful home and their property is amazing. They have beautiful trees, bushes, flowers, landscape I should say. They have a dog, the kids call him the "smart dog" (Sam) which they love. They have a pool and a hot tub so the kids are entertained and we just get to sit back and visit and enjoy the natural surroundings. Sam is the babysitter. He watches the kids while they swim. He is very protective. They have a new dog and the kids love her as well. She is very shy, but by the end of the day she was warming up to our little monkeys. Thank you Joe and Tammy for your patience. They are wonderful friends. It is nice to sit back and enjoy families and friendships together.

Garrett and I have different Spring Breaks, but we still found the time to go to the zoo as a family. It was a preliminary for the twins because they went to the zoo with their school about a month later. We had a great time. We got to see some big cats and entertaining monkeys. The kids could tell us a lot about the zoo animals. They spent all year learning about them to prepare for their end of the year trip. We finished off the visit with a trip to the gift shop. The twins got water bottles, Austin got a cool safari hat, Avery got a necklace, and Nolan got a pair of binoculars, which he didn't put down for a good two weeks. All of this bought with their own money.
