Hogle Zoo!

We went to the Hogle Zoo for the first time in 2 years. They have changed alot since then! Xander had a lot of fun running around and finding all of the animals! His favorite were the snakes and bats! (He is such a boy!) I don't think that Mara really knew what was going on :) Here are some of our highlights!

Xander was able to get close to this Giraffe.
It made him
a little nervous.

I just recently got back from a great trip to Disneyland! I was able to leave Pat home with the kids, so it made the trip extra nice to get away for a few days. I went with my mom, my sister Karri and a bunch of other girl family members. We had alot of fun laughing, taking pictures, and making my older aunts ride Space Mountain, Indiana Jones, Tower of Terror and California Screamin'! Needless to say, they only did them the once :) It was a great trip for me, but I missed my little family. They were waiting for me when I got home and gave me big hugs and kisses. Mara almost cried when she saw me, so that made me feel good. I appreciate Pat for letting me do this. It has been a long year since I quit working and stayed home with the kids. I love being home, but as you all know, it is great to get away. You come back appreciating your husband and kids a little more!

I hope that I can keep up on this blog. This is a new adventure for me. So please check back for new pics. There should be some fun ones with the summer comming up!! ;)
