Here's Olive looking prim and proper.

The straw just adds class, don't you think? I think he'll make a rather sophisticated bachelor.

Kelan just LOVES his daddy these days.

We've had some fun with sunglasses recently.

Lookin sharp.

We went to the Reid Park Zoo!!

Jak, and several other kids his age, saw this guy and said "It's Marty!!!" (from Madagascar)

Apparently this lion is really old- and really tired.

There were peacocks roaming around.

The giraffes were so cool.

The elephants.

Here's me and the boys in front of the giraffes. They were awesome.

Kai looking handsome...

Jak got hatched!

Daddy and Jak.

These little otters were so friendly!! They stood there and talked (squeaked) at us!!

I think the Macaw wanted us to leave him alone.

HUUUUGE Tortoises!!

A very wise looking baboon.

Crazy lookin anteater.

We went with Craig to his medical screening in Tucson, and after dropping him off, the boys and I drove around a bit seeing the sights. We got downtown and found ourselves at the Tucson Children's Museum! We had a blast but didn't get to stay long enough so we're going back on Friday.

He's so cool...

Our little scientist in the lab.

This was the most "museumy" area in the place, a collection of Mickey Mouse paraphernalia. As you can see, I had a hard time getting the boys to pose because they were so excited to explore.

A little hip-hop dance lesson in the dance room.


The lights and siren really worked on this thing.

Fireman Jak.

These dinosaurs were big and they moved, so we didn't last long in the dinosaur room.

Kelan playing with the art computer.

After a bit he decided he wanted to go to the train room.

Here we are in the doctor's office area, where Kelan picked up his baby to go shopping.

The man knows how to shop! He ended up with two carts full of fruits and veggies.

Here are our little sailors in their submarine.

Jak in the train room, ringing the really loud train bell.

Pretty church in Tucson

The boys loved the big buildings.

Jak asked for the camera.

And then took a picture of me.

See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil.

It's an odd tradition, but it ensures that the dinner dishes are done...

SNOW!!!! Ok, so it's not a lot, but our highs were in the 70's all last week, so it's a big deal to us!

It was super windy this morning. Nice hair, Kelan!

Jak, determined to make a snow ball...

He was just a little disappointed in the outcome of his snow angel!

Jak was so happy to see snow!

Random pictures from the past week...


No paparazzi!!



Don't smile Kai!

He likes to move it move it!


The curls dancing on the hearth.

Ok, how do we put it in Drive?

This boy smiles a LOT!

Silly daddy.

Daddy gets hugs from Kelan.

We were watching American Idol and noticed that Jak and Kelan were awfully quiet...

The next morning, I came out from doing laundry and couldn't find the partners in crime. They were out back on the "rock mountain"!

Jak loves hearing himself through daddy's headphones!
