Field Day

Last week was field day for James & Wesley. They each got the standard green ribbon that everyone received. Amazingly (it seems these days), the school also gave out place ribbons for certain events. Wesley won a blue ribbon for the shoe kick event. James won a blue ribbon for the 3-legged race (my friend and I won that every year, too - or at least that's how I remember it...) and a red ribbon for the football toss. They both had a lot of fun. I know I always loved field day!

My little monkeys at the zoo

Here's some pictures of our trip to the zoo with friends...

This gorilla was a little freaky! We went into the building where he was and the kids walked over to the glass. The gorilla had been on a "ledge" a few feet away and immediately came over and banged the window. The kids all freaked out and moved away from the window. Then he sat down for a while and I took some pictures. Not sure why he came over so quickly. Weird!
Here's the kids with the "safe" Gorilla.

I think Red Pandas are so cute!

Megan's face cracks me up on this one!

The cheetahs were trying to get to the kangaroos and emus in the adjacent area.

Matthew saw this and said, "Penguin school!"
(from the penguin episode of "Go, Diego Go!")

We saw a couple of peacocks, but this one had its feathers out. So pretty!

11 years ago...

This was a big week 11 years ago. The dates fall on the same days of the week this year, so maybe that makes me even more nostalgic. Jim graduated from USAFA 11 years ago today.

Our 11 year anniversary is Saturday, too. (The Cadets can't get married until they graduate, so 3 days later, there we were

at the Boise Temple!)

These 11 years (and the 2 1/2 years we knew each other before marriage) have been GREAT! I'm so thankful for Jim in my life and the life we have together.

Here's to many more years to come!!!
