A few pictures from our trip yesterday...

We went up to Durham to the museum there. They had a butterfly house, too. It rained like crazy but we had fun anyway. There was lots to look at and do - an aeronautics area, lots of fish, some owls, an ant farm, Kapla blocks, a farmyard...all kinds of stuff. My favorite was Loblolly park - they have all kinds of drums and chimes and things and you can just beat on them with a stick and make LOTS of noise!
Here's a picture of Oliver signing "frog" because there were frogs in that aquarium.

Here's the tarantula. Oliver wouldn't touch anything through the glass except this. Gross!!!

Next are a few of the butterflies we saw in the butterfly house. It was so amazing. Since it was raining and you have to go outside to get here we actually had the place to ourselves for about 10 minutes before anyone else came in.

Something I want for Roy...

After much consideration and some advice from an expert I've decided I want this. I don't know if Bob will use it, he probably won't, but I think it'd be easier than a stroller AND I can wear it around the house. I really want it in the Sienna color, but that is the only color that Cottonbabies doesn't carry. I'll probably order it from them because I've ordered from them before and I trust them - they also have free shipping on that item! If someone wanted to get me this as a baby shower gift I would be incredibly happy! My second color choices are indigo or forest green. I just found out that there's a store in GSO (and 4 in Asheville, 1 in Raleigh) that sell this item.
