A face only a mother could love....

Is this a face or what. He just got out of the tub and he loves to wrap a towel around his head of no hair I might add (like mom does). Perfect photo op. As his grandpa says, Avery, you have a face only a mother could love!! Aww, he's my cute boy.

Trip to the zoo!

Yesterday we went to the Hogle Zoo with all the usual, friends, family...It was a great day. We got there early and the weather was great, just slightly breezy. We couldn't have picked a better day to go. All the animals were awake and eating their breakfast when we got there. Kathy and I were discussing the amazing animals that our great big God makes...How amazing and intricate are the giraffes and the zebras...Just can't fathom...No two patterns on the zebras and the giraffes for that matter are the same. Blows me away. After making the rounds to see all the animals, we rode the new carousel which was sooo cool. Avery chose to ride the gorilla of course. Emmy chose the cheetah. Then we rode the train. We stopped and had a picnic lunch which consisted of the famous egg salad sandwiches with all the other picnic fixins... I love eating picnics at the zoo. Reminds me of when I was a kid. We always had egg salad sandwiches. YUM-O!!! Ahhh, MEMORIES, MEMORIES!!! It was a great day with the fam...Jared was in a great mood and the kids had a great time. Here's a few pics of everyone.
