Tree Climbing

April 18th, 2009 by matt

Ben and Grace have had quite some fun already this spring climbing the trees in our back yard.  They have even named a couple of their favorite spots.

The Milwaukee Zoo

April 18th, 2009 by matt

On a nice spring day this week, Sarah, Grandma ‘cilla, Ben, Grace, Max, Will and I all went to the zoo for the afternoon.  Even though it was crowded, we got to see lots of the animals.  Ben like the reptiles and he especially enjoyed the poisonous snakes.  Grace like the ponies but didn’t get to ride one this time.  Max paid special attention to the fish.  I think he wanted to touch the small sharks.  Will slept through most of the experience.

Here is Grace and Sarah on stroller duty

I’m sure we’ll be going back soon!

William is growing already

We’re trying to enjoy the infant version of William as much as we can because we know that all too soon he’ll be running around like his big brother Max.  Here is a quick shot of Will I took with my phone.

He looks like the other kids already, doesn’t he?

The first post here was Easter last year.  Can’t believe I’ve been doing this for a year!

I hope your holiday weekend was fantastic.
