The day before our trip we had a bagel picnic.
With the rain we chose to go the aquarium.
“row, row, row your boat..”
The girls..Caroline, Avery, Ella and Addy
So happy to be with the cousins.
Trying to touch the stingrays.
The girl won't know how to use her legs after this trip.
LOVE the sea turtles.
The weather's starting to get better.
Matthew finds his own fun.
Such a cool monkey
Watching the giraffe eat.
Up close and personal
Hello Mr. Elephant.
Turle bathing on the rock.
The Mangel's clan.
What better way to spend an afternoon?
Matthew was bummed that the snake was “closed” again.
What a cute chair.
Sitting on the rhino...thought I'd tell you since you can't see :)
These birds showed up out of nowhere the minute the pretzels came out.
Ella and Caroline striking a pose.
Trying to get her by the flowers.
Playing in the fountain before leaving the zoo.
Addy wasn't sure...
Ella racing through the fountain.
What more do you need??
I liked this part of the zoo!
Addy was the cautious observer...as per usual
Getting everyone to look is not easy.
Lots of help to get shoes on.
The darned birds found us again.
Careful with those snacks Addy.
Saturday morning trip to Mt. Trashmore.
What's wrong with this picture?
Matthew wants no parts of it.
What will Addy think of the beach?
The legs wouldn't hit the ground.
Sitting on the board was a little safer.
But she thinks she's surfer girl.
She LOOKS like a beach baby.
Starting to really like the sand.
She's checking out the kids boogey boarding.
So much fun to be at the beach.
Throwing the sand up in the air..
Having a blast now.
I think we need to go to the beach more often.
Matthew comes in to say hello.
WHAT are you doing Addy?
This headstand thing made me laugh.
Who does this??
Oh well, I love the girl.
Everyone at work.
A very serious project in the works.
Taking a break for snack.
Needing something more than a snack now.
We watched a wedding.
The next day we head to “jet ski beach”
What a surprise...snack time!
Another big project...
we actually stole this from someone after they left.
Addy much less aprehensive without the waves.
Not time for a jet ski ride yet though.
King of the castle.
Pig costume...couldn't find the hat.
Once we got home we went straight to the garden...
dad knows how much Addy likes to pick so he left them for our return.
