Below are the boys at the Como Zoo! It was such a nice day that we had to get outside! It got up to 75 degrees there one day! So yes- it snowed and was bright and beautiful all in the same week! Welcome to Minnesota- they say - stay a week and you may experience all four seasons in 7 days!
This was so CUTE- a baby giraffe- born in February- and in two months it was that big! We also saw twin baby monkeys and a baby gorilla! We had a great time at the zoo! Next trip- we will try and go to the other zoo and the great children's museum! Minneapolis is a really great city for kids!!!
This is such a sweet picture! This cute little monkey was interacting with Eli for a good 5 minutes! It would follow his finger and follow Eli!
It was very windy at times in Minnesota.... it felt almost like Mommy and Daddy were back in college at Oklahoma State! Easton kept wanting to put his hat on and he kept saying "cold" over and over!
Mommy and her cute Daddy-look-a-likes! Obviously these are the cutest two little boys in the world! (I know... I'm partial... after all they look like handsome Daddy!) This was right before the game in the family room! What a lucky grandma Gammy is that she has two grandsons that look like their daddy! And by the way.... she isn't partial either!
(Below)This is Easton at Easter brunch downtown! It was delicious! Although Mommy had to get a new plate after Eli spilled his orange juice...... yep- straight in my plate! Good thing it was a buffet! The boys were wonderful! Even at church service! We attend a church in Maple Grove, called Church of the Open Door. It was VERY family and kid friendly! They encourage children to be brought into the sanctuary! We can't wait to go back!
Easton got served orange juice in a fancy stemmed glass- all was good till Eli got one!
(Below) The boys Easter morning..... sorry I don't have pictures of them with their Easter baskets or of their egg hunt with Owen Kubel! (They were taken on a different camera and of course it is in Minnesota- and we are now in Shreveport!) They both loved their Easter baskets.... what a smart Easter bunny- both boys got exactly the same thing, down to the color and everything- he or she must know that they always want the same thing! :) And notice in the picture who is eating candy at 9 am before church! Eli isn't eating any because he doesn't like candy! Too bad the Easter bunny didn't give him real carrots- Mommy will have to remember to tell the Easter Bunny next year! Hey- peas might appear in some eggs next year! We'll see whose children, other than Eli, like that!!
We will post again when we return to Minnesota May 7th! It will be an event filled week, as it is Mother's Day weekend! Hope everyone has a great next few weeks! Please keep our family in your prayers, as mommy and the boys spend another 20 days without Daddy! God has given us such great family and friends to help us along our journey. Thank you Lord!
