It's a jungle out there! Part 1

We got to go to the Phoenix Zoo this summer (before the temp's got to hot) with Christian's summer camp class (also his old pre-k buddies) Little Rascals Preschool. I must admit I am not a BIG zoo goer in our state, but over the last few years the Phoenix zoo has added some really AWESOME! attraction's.
The boys had a lot of fun seeing the different animals: rhino's, lion's, tiger's, no bears OH MY! Rick was even able to get us some really AMAZING photo's of some the animals. I LOVE the one of the lion sleeping (he looks so peaceful), but I wouldn't want to be caught around him when he's awake! It was cute to watch Baby Noah's reaction to all the different kinds of animals. I like to tease him & say do you remember bring 2 of of each of all these kinds of animals on to your boat? haha LOL I am sure he is going to get sick of those kind of jokes/comments real quick as he getts older, but for now it is funny.

Baby it's cold outside.........

It's funny to be putting those words as my title when it is 100 degrees out today, but this post is long over due & at the time it was around 26 dgrees when these photo's were taken! Back in January we decided to head up as a family to Prescott, AZ. for the day in the middle of a snow storm. CRAZY! I know but if you live in AZ you know we don't get snow to often, so we took our chances & I am glad we did! The grandparents & Mrs. Brenda we're not to thrilled though. They were all a little worried to say the least.
We did have a wonderful time, but boy did we freeze our butt's off! Christian LOVED it until his pants/socks started to get wet from the snow, Baby Noah never liked it! & Rick said " Beth you better get used to it if we ever move to MI."!
It was beautiful though to see a white winter wonderland. Our winters can be so warm in the valley, that it can make it hard to feel like the holiday season.
Funny thing though all the stores closed early due to the weather, you would think these people would be used to this! CHICKENS!

I came across these photos of when we took the boys to the park in our neighborhood a few months back. It is AMAZING to me how much Baby Noah has changed in just 5 short months! He is no longer bald with peach fuzz & is actually in desperate need of a haircut, but I just can't bring myself to do it. It means they are no longer a baby once they get that first real haircut! It is sad how fast it all goes by, but I know that make us apperciate it all that much more.
