Still here!

It's been a busy Spring! William only has 3 days of school left. Lauren is "talking" alot and climbing more than ever and I have no idea where the time has gone! But we have had some fun times! We've enjoyed some LSU baseball games and slowly dragging out the water toys!

Our Zoboomafoo

Uncle Barry & Aunt Jenni gave us a membership to the zoo for Christmas and we have been looking forward to taking our monkeys there!  We finally had some nice weather last week, so we went to the zoo with William's friend, Riley.  William was curious and took his time watching all of the animals.  William likes the show "Zoboomafoo" on PBS and I was surprised at how much he knew about the animals.  Lauren wasted no time talking to all of them.  She cackled most of the time and kept me laughing.  
Talking to the monkey.
William & Riley
Black Jaguar
Spectacled Bears
Zoo experts...Biology majors...What is this?  There was no sign. 
William said, "I think it's a Pappotamus."
It was about 2/3 the size of a hippo, but definitely not a hippo.
These were my favorites!  William said, "I monkey around like them."
I would most definitely agree.
Riley & William watching the otters.  These were William's favorite.

If you don't like snakes, close your eyes.  William wanted me to take pictures of them. 
He loves to look at the pictures on our blog.  So, here they are. Just reminds me of a hiking trip to Oak Mountain with Uncle Chad.  A snake was between us on the trail.....I. could. not. move. Ugghhhh.......

Nicole & Ian
Baby Black Rhino
Lauren's favorite.  Flamingos.
Thanks Uncle B & Aunt Jenni!  We had fun hanging out with the monkeys!

Moving on up!

We have a climber!  Lauren started climbing in January.  Climbing on the chairs, the fireplace, the couch, the scooter, the steps.  And the pantry.  We had to move the oreos up a few shelves.  She pushes one of the little chairs to where she wants it and climbs on up.  There has been a sunroom project going on this past month at our house and she has been the little "foreman."  The carpenters entertained her for hours.  You would think William would have been right there watching with his tools, but Lauren was very intrigued.  Or nosy...

And not to leave the guys out of all the activity...They were "watching" the Saints beat the Cardinals.

Lauren's Birthday!

Lauren's 1st birthday was on December 18th.  With all of the Christmas activities, we decided to have a little family party in January.  We had to reschedule once due to icy bridges and freezing rain,  but it was worth it.
