For our anniversary we enjoyed some Patachou.
Then off to the zoo we went.
The orangutans were my favorite that day. We had never seen them so active. They were playing peek-a-boo and wrestling with each other, swinging from the vines, and scaling the walls.
We also did our annual camping trip. In the backyard, of course :)
It's a lot of work just to go camping in the backyard. I can't imagine packing all of this up (plus more!) and camping somewhere else. Phew!
The kids did a great job sleeping. Lincoln and I stayed inside, which was a smart move since he was up most of the night. I thought AJ would have been the one to not get any sleep out there with the kids, but instead I was the one who only slept about 3 hours straight. At one point AJ texted me at 4 am because he could hear Lincoln crying all the way outside!
No matter how much work it is, the kids always enjoy the "forest castle".
The kids have been asking for months to get some frozen yogurt.
So we went and they enjoyed this special treat. Selah was so cute...AJ took the kids up to pick their flavors and he handed Selah a sample cup to try a flavor and she marched away with it because that is what she wanted to eat out of. Maybe next time we will be able to get away with sample cups for all the kids! :)
And once the sugar set it, they just wanted to make silly faces.
On our anniversary we thought we would eat at our dining room table. Ari said "Who is coming over?" Because the only time we eat in there is when we have company. Our little anniversary dinner was just for us, candle-lit and all.
And these are the pictures that turn out when your 4 year old takes them :)
These cousins are 8 weeks apart.
We also got free tickets to an Indians game. Since our last one got rained out we were able to stay longer at this one.
It was pretty hot, but we got to enjoy a free concert ahead of time since it was Faith and Family Night.
And we kept putting off getting our corn and green beans, but I was worried we would miss our opportunity so we spent about four evenings freezing sweet corn and canning lots of beans. So glad we did so we can enjoy these all year long.
