Fantastic Weekend**

We had a fantastic weekend. Friday night G spent the night with the grandparents and Sat. we all went to the zoo. Even the lion at the zoo was happy to see us roaring loudly as we stopped by.

G had her obligatory photos taken with the budda and at the polar bear exhibit. She also bravely walked the wooden poles lining the walk to the exhibit. Grammie had to hold her hands though.

Then she and Grandad rode the merry-go-round. I got several pics with this very big smile on her.

Her legs stopped working and Grandad carried her to the car.

Then she and I went to the harvest moon festival with our local FCC friends. We got to ride in the front seat of the carriage, made a lantern, had a ladybug painted on our face, had roasted "washmellows" (marshmallows), and rode on a hayride.

But then all good things must come to an end with tears. She had fallen asleep in the car on the way home and it was extremely tough to wake up. Then I picked the wrong sleep wear and well the night deteriorated quickly. And yes I let her sleep in the ladybug paint.

What a fun weekend. It sounds like you guys were as busy as we were this weekend. Love the crying pics. It so reminds me of my boys when they are woken up after falling asleep in the car-- too funny!!

Have a great week!!!

The one with her in your lap looks like she is going to hurl...

The one with the flame looks like she is holding a lighted torch in her mouth. Cool. It is in the distance, but fooled me at first glance.

Great pics.

Glenys is so lucky to have her grandparents nearby. Our families are so far away and we really miss having them near us.
