Cincinnati Zoo

Monday, October 16th, 2006

The Cincinnati Zoo was a lot of fun today. We went with Monkey Grandma. The coolest part by far was the polar bears swimming right next to the kids. The bears were putting on quite a show. All of the pictures are in Image Galleries 73 and 74.

Here are a couple samples:

Dinner At Larosa's

Monday, October 16th, 2006

We had a big crowd at Larosa’s for dinner. Besides Grandma, we also had Uncle Pat, Aunt Carole, Uncle Matt and Aunt Carolyne. I don’t think Jake, Beth or Lauren had ever had Larosa’s pizza before. Not surprisingly, they all liked it:

Sunflower Farm

Sunday, October 15th, 2006

Cincinnati has its own Fall farm to go to. We did crafts, saw cool stuff and walked around. They even had a horse demonstration. Well, they had horses and guy who talked about them, but he didn’t actually want to show us anything cool on the horses:

Cincinnati

Sunday, October 15th, 2006

We’re spending Fall Break in Cincinnati right now. Somehow, Lauren convinced her Aunt Carole to let her sleep over at her house for the night last night. When we came to pick her up the next morning, it sounded like she had had a great time:

Annual Gentry Farm Trip

Sunday, October 8th, 2006

We made our annual trip to Gentry Farm. They had gotten rid of a few things, so there wasn’t quite as much to do, but it wasn’t crowded and the weather was great, so we’re not complaining. The funniest part of the trip was the cow that chased us on the hayride. It kept mooing at us and the kids thought it was hilarious.

Swim Meet

Sunday, October 1st, 2006

Lauren doesn’t get many swim meets in the Fall. So far, this is the only one she’s been able to go to. At least Painting Grandma was here to see it. Lauren swam in two relays, the back stroke and freestyle. I think it’s the first time she’s ever done 4 events.
