I Think It Looks Like a Panda Head

That was my first thought when I saw it in person. That is also what my good friend Diana thought when she saw this. The real answer is…

Anteater! Jacob was so excited to see this. I believe it to be one thing he said we had to see before leaving the zoo, this he said as we entered the zoo. It was among the last 5 animals we came to before we left.

*I know it is Wednesday, but our internet was down when I got home from work yesterday, and just now is back up.*

Introducing the New Girls to 2007

Just after midnight Jacob and I headed over to the hospital with Ronda and Matt to see the new girls in the family. After Matt and Ronda, we were the first ones to hold and feed the little ladies in 2007. We were able to spend the first few hours with them. It was fun and really cool. Here is a video of uncle Jacob holding Gretchyn and Matt (daddy) Holding Geneva.


Our honeymoon video – NOT THAT KIND!

Our big “secret honeymoon” was to Bardolph, Illinois St. Louis, Missouri. We had a Great time and got to see lots. The Highlight of the trip was our visit to the zoo. We were able to watch the feedings of the sea lions and the penguins. However the most remarkable part was what we heard in the ape house. Listen to the video for what is said six seconds in.

Jacob says “You’ll never hear THAT on the Discovery Channel!”

I Scream! You Scream! We All Scream for Ice Cream!

I love ice cream! My two current favorites are Bunny Tracks and Peanut Butter Brownie Sensation. Oh, then there is a seasonal Cinnamon. Birthday Cake flavored is yummy too, I prefer it without the sprinkles. Mint Chocolate-chip is good. While I am not a great fan of Rootbeer, it is good with Vanilla ice cream. Peaches and Cream is probably my favorite with real chunks of fruit. I love Strawberry ice cream, but not the kind that has the big clots of shredded fruit in it.

I hate doing dishes though, so one (this one) must eat from a cone to truely enjoy the experience.
