Dallas Zoo

We went to the Dallas Zoo on Monday with the Rogers family. All the kids had such a great time seeing the animals, riding the monorail and riding the carousel. We went early in the morning, so it wasn't too hot and all the animals were active and awake. The monkeys were a little too loud and active. Gaitley has been scared ever since. She keeps saying, "monkeys loud." They were really loud though, so I guess I don't blame her. Garrett and Jacob even got to touch a snake while we were there. Brave boys!

Ty, Garrett and Jacob enjoyed walking while Gaitley got pushed around in the wagon.

Best buds!

Garrett and Jacob listened so well to the man telling about the snake.

Brave boy!
Gaitley loved the carousel.

First Camp Out and First Swim of the Summer

On Friday night, Britt took Garrett out to Lake Lavon for his first overnight camping trip. Last summer they spent several nights in the tent in our backyard, but this was their first time to go somewhere else. I have never seen Garrett more excited about something. He couldn't wait for Britt to get home from work on Friday afternoon. They got out to Lake Lavon around 4:00 and spent the afternoon exploring, fishing and setting up the tent. Gaitley and I joined them for hot dogs and s'mores around 7:00. Garrett was ready for us to go home because he didn't think the girls belonged out in the woods with the boys. Britt said he did great and even slept until 8:00 the next morning. He is already excited about their next camping trip.

Yummy s'mores!

Gaitley loved hanging out by the fire and exploring in the woods.
The true campers!

Garrett spent all day Sunday playing in the water. He started out with water balloons, then moved to the sprinkers, and then finally the neighborhood kids convinced our next door neighbor to let them go swimming in their pool. It was freezing, but the kids loved it.

Easter 2010

We spent Easter in Rockwall this year. I was a little sad about not going to Spearman, but we had a great time with friends here. We went to the early church service this morning and then Britt took the kids out for a little photo shoot while I got things ready for lunch. We went down the street to a neighbor's house for Easter lunch and an egg hunt. There were four families in all, so the kids had a great time playing and hunting eggs with their neighborhood friends.

Easter Egg Hunts

We had our first Easter egg hunt on Sunday with our Sunday school class. We about blew away because it was so windy, but the kids enjoyed it. Garrett knew all about the candy and was ready to go. Gaitley quickly learned and was excited to fill her basket with eggs as well.
On Wednesday, we had our second egg hunt with our MOPS group. It was a lot of fun too. We are so lucky to belong to such wonderful groups.
