4-wheelin' fun!

We went to visit grammy and pop-pop for my birthday a few weeks ago, and we decided to take Wes' quad with us, since they have a nice big yard, and thought maybe Lauren would like to try it out. We also figured it would be a good way to get Wes to actually ride it, since all he's done is sit on it, replying "Mommy, it's too big" when I tell him to make it move. Mission successful!And just one to show that yes, he does have a helmet :)

I just realized it's been over 2 weeks since my last blog post! Ooopps! Things have been crazy...Jim's AT for 2 weeks, fall sports practices starting last week, and landscaping at our house which also started last week. Throw in a couple of birthdays, and it's been a crazy month!

Here's a sneak peek at some of the progress of our new and improved yard! We actually have real grass now, with more coming! Very exciting!

Zoo fun!

We went to the Ross Park Zoo a few days ago, it's been years since I was last there, and we thought Wes would enjoy seeing the animals.

This bear wasn't impressed with us!My fave of the zoo pics

Then we had a nice little picnic lunch, and headed over to the Discovery Center to check that out. It's a great place for kids!

Here's Wes lovin' on his cousin
