Sunday afternoon found us at a family reunion for my mother-in-law's side of the family. The kids enjoyed some games that were planned for them and especially enjoyed being reunited with JOE who now has a very adorable brand new baby girl of his own - Congratulations Joe and Katie!
Monday we visited the zoo with our friends who have 8 children. Five of theirs were off to camp so we just took the girls and the youngers to the Columbus zoo while the three big boys trotted off to Kenyon with Tata to play in his physics lab. JT built a car with the lego Mindstorms he had there and Philip really enjoyed putting together some basic movies which were, apparently, a real hoot when played backwards. The flamingos and gorillas are my all-time favorite visits at any zoo but here we were treated to 2 baby flamingos.JohnMichael, Betsy, Alana, Cordelia, Miriam and Fiona. Betsy and Fiona really enjoyed seeing each other again. We'll meet up with them again in September at the beach. I'm not sure what happened to David and Ruth in this picture...And this other pic is Nehemiah in the tiger's den. What a cootie!
