Zoo Playground

Saturday, September 17th, 2005

The kids had a ball at the zoo today. They played on the playground. We could barely find Lauren because she was lost in the huge play tower with the 3-story slide. Jake and Beth loved the big foam room — Beth was a regular gymnast:

We did have time to get a family picture for Lauren’s school project:

Meanwhile, Jake and Beth had wandered off. I went to go find them up to no good on the playground:

Trip to Gatlinburg

Tuesday, September 6th, 2005

Jen took her mom and the kids on a weekend trip to get away from me. They had a great time exploring eastern Tennessee near Gatlinburg. Here are a few pictures, but there are a lot more in Image Galleries 52 and 53.
