Zoo day

We made our first summer trip to the zoo on Saturday! We always start out with our favorite the flamingos! 
We had a great visit 
Lots of new stuff at the zoo for the summer and special guests from Ice Age were there! Kaitlin was so thrilled!
Colin was neutral 
These penguins have become my measuring gauge for my kids!!!! They know they have to get there picture with the statue! It's tradition 
Colin has grown a ton! 
His favorite is the aquarium 
Giraffes were practicularly photogenic 

Kaitlin is currently doing a research project on bald eagles so it was extra special to see them up close! Kailtin has learned a lot about these birds and it was great timing to see her bird!
Can't wait for another zoo day! We headed to the pool after the zoo to cool off! We got there and applied sunscreen when a storm rolled thru and the lighting sirens went off! We waited out the storm and got a few hours at the pool before another storm rolled in! Such a busy day! 

Angry Birds weekend

Last week was Kaitlin's last soccer game for spring! It was another rainy and cold day but they had a great game!
Kaitlin and Kory had a little break at Starbucks after the game ! 

Kory has always loved movies and he has passed this loved on to Kailtin!!! Kaitlin had the new "Angry Birds " movie marked on her calendar for weeks!!! She was so excited and excitedly marked down the days to the movie premiere!
