The Zoo, a car and some cows...

It's been awhile so i figured i'd let ya'll know what's going on. First and formost, Peyton, our big 6 1/2 month older had his cardiologist appointment this past week. She said that he looked great from what she could see and he sounded great. he wouldnt allow her to do the Echo but what are ya gonna do? It's bottle time and he was hungry - he's a growing boy ya know. she watns to see him in 4 months b/c she wants to keep an eye on things where they did the surgery. the arteries are narrow and she doesnt want them to get narrower b/c it will make it harder for the heart to pump the blood where it needs to go.
Anyways, Other news....lets see, less than a month before brenden and landons birthday! Expect an invite - it'll be out soon!!!! Uhm, Oh!!! We went to the Zoo this past weekend. Actually we ventured to the zoo and if you ask Landon "the zoo is that way" (points up to the sky) b/c we went to the Toledo zoo with our friends Lauren, Cameron and Natalie. Natalie is Peytons arranged girlfriend. At the zoo we had alot of fun looking at the animals. We saw monkeys, bears, snakes, birds, turtles and hippos and elephants. Here's some pics from the zoo.

Brenden and Landon looking at the monkeys.

So, they had a "little People" petting zoo there with all types of animals. There were Alpaca there and gerbils and birds and turtles for the kids to pet. Right away the boys noticed the baby goats. They had the goats in a large cage for all the kids to go in with their parents to PET the goats. Rick took the boys in and let them down to pet the goats and this is what happened (see below picture for the rest of the story)

The boys chased the goats from one end to another. The entire crowd watching the kids in the cage were cracking up at the boys. The one mom beside me said "Omigosh, do you see those twins in there, they look like they're having the time of their lives chasing them from one end to the other..." I laughed and put my head in my hands as they boys were screaming "eeeeee" as they were chasing them. She goes "Are they yours?" and I shook my head yes and she goes "oh bless you, let them run their energy out now...." All in all though we had a great time. They fell asleep on the way back to the hotel. What a fun time we had. Now whenever you ask Brenden what a monkey does he beats his chest and laughs. They had a great time.
Other news....we got a new vehicle. I was tired of putting the kids in and out of the Aztek. I had been looking at vans for awhile and finally settled on one. Much thanks to my parents for all the help in getting us into the van. We got a Chrystler Town and Country. The boys LOVE it b/c it has a dvd player in it and they can watch Backyardigans and go places....two for the price of one! Anyways here's a picture of it!

We also enjoy going down to the farm to see the moo cows. There's some baby cows there that the boys love to feed. They have so much fun. They grab the littlest handful of straw and feed them one strand. It's too cute.

Well that's about all i have time to post right now. Thanks for checking in!
