Garden Explosion

When we got home, this is what we found in our garden. The neighbors had picked all they could eat. I have since made 20 jars of spaghetti sauce, 16 loaves of zuchinni bread, and three batches of zuchinni brownies. The tomatoes and peppers just keep ripening so salsa will be next.

Nathan's Birthday

No, Nathan did not turn 39 but it was the only candles we could find in the house. Since he lies about his age anyway, I decided it didn't matter.

Nathan checking out the ice cream situation.

The kids waiting patiently to eat cake.

From this point on, I gave Avalee the camera. She took pictures of Nathan's high school friends that were in attendance. It was a fun night for Nathan to have a birthday and catch up with old friends.

DC Zoo

I love the DC Zoo. They have the best animals and it is free. Avalee insisted on carrying this purse she had found. At each animal stop, she pulled out a toy animal of the animal we were visiting. I have no idea where she found these animals but it was pretty funny when we caught on to what she had done.

This is the first time the kids had seen a seal.

And they were so excited about the panda bear. Everyone else was also excited about the panda bear so it was hard to get a good picture.

The DC zoo has mist sprinklers in many locations. The kids loved to stand under them.

They would get completely wet but they were always dry when we got to the next one.
