Zoo Visit

I took Paige to the zoo last weekend with another mom & her son, who is 3 months older than Paige. What a blast! She is finally old enough to enjoy watching the animals & imitating their many noises. She especially enjoyed the petting zoo. You can bet we will be visiting the zoo again soon!

Paige helped mom plant flowers in every available pot last Friday. We had beautiful weather. With good help like this, we may have to get more pots & more flowers!

What happened to April

You know, the month between March (last post) and May (current date)?! We knew it would be busy before it even began...

On April 1, Beth returned from a long weekend trip to Las Vegas with a friend (and no baby!) for some fun in the sun.

Two weeks later, Grandma Sara and Grandpa D arrived to help care for Paige while Beth flew to NY for business. The grandparents left just before the stomach flu struck our household for the second time in two months. Paige & Beth got it bad; Steve got it just enough to feel queasy.

Days later, Steve packed his suitcase for a 6-day training session in Orlando, leaving Beth on single-mom duty and still recovering from the flu. We slept a lot that week.

On April 23, Paige & Beth flew down to FL as well to meet up with Steve & visit with his parents, brother, sis-in-law, & nephew. We had fantastic weather & a really fun visit with the family. Paige loved chasing their cat. For days after we got home, we heard "meow meow" all over our house (even though we do not have a cat).
