Legos on the roof.....and other happenings

Happiness is.....legos on the roof. In the last 24 hours, Caleb has been on a mission....see how much mischief he can get into! That seems to be the name of the game anyway. It was quiet this afternoon, and here he was, throwing legos onto the roof.

This morning, while I was upstairs getting ready, it was strangely quiet. When I came into the kitchen, I found an ENTIRE box or Life cereal on the floor. I had just opened a box of Maple Brown Sugar flavor,and he didn't like it at all. So I guess he was getting rid of it!

When I found him, he was spraying the wall down with Resolve carpet cleaner. He had also sprayed Resolve all over the cereal. Last night, he got into the Resolve, and had sprayed down the kitchen....table, chairs and puddles of it on the floor. He's such a handful, but I LOVE all his mischief....he keeps us all laughing.

Last week, the Byers hosted a beautiful bridal shower for Vita. She is graduating and leavng soon to head back to the Ukraine. It was a priviledge getting to know her....she always has a smile and is sweet to the core! Our kids LOVED having her babysit.

While at the Byers, Esther shared her hamster with the kids.....SO CUTE! Now we all want a hamster! Yes...I said "we".

Last week, we took advantage of the weather and made a trip to the zoo. Now Caleb asks several times a day to go to the zoo :) If it would ever quit raining, we might just do that!

Of course, the kids were most enthralled with the monkeys. They were very active and got many laughs.

It was quite amazing to watch the mama and baby monkey go swinging from limb to limb. The baby was holding on for dear life....literally!

In a pretend wolf den

The wolves were "fighting" and growling.....probably actually mating season....I'm not sure!

Happiness is....taking my three kids to the zoo. We have such fun out together.

Every year we say we're going to buy a zoo pass, and then we never get around to it. I would love to get one this year. I know the kids would love it. Looks like a fun time.

I can sympathize with you on all those messes. Jillian loves to make them as well.

It's at times like this when a baby-sitter comes in handy:)
