Wyatt at the zoo...

He fell asleep about 2/3 of the way through. Poor little guy must have been so worn out.

He's escaping into the jungle!

Wyatt, where are the animals?

Little sweaty adventure boy!

Oliver went and sat on top of these steps so he wouldn't disturb the animals. It was so cute! Gramma went and sat with him - it was too sweet not to snap a picture.

I just like this close up shot of Oliver - he's so handsome!

I'm not even sure what they were looking at but they all look reeeeeally interested!

The otter does flips and tricks for the kids. They all enjoyed the show. Oliver wanted to stay even after everyone else had walked away. The otter is one of my favorite things at the zoo.

Oliver and Delilah played the Mount Cameroon game. Oliver is jumping over the laaaava!

Wyatt and Delilah checking out the flamingos

Oliver, Wyatt and Delilah all got to ride the "music-go-round" (that's what Oliver called it) Oliver chose an elephant. Delilah was on the cheetah right next to him...

and Wyatt rode a zebra. It seemed like they had fun but I was a little dizzy when we got off!!

big guitar boy

Oliver is such a rock star. He loves playing this guitar and he even sings now when he does it. He makes up songs and dances. It's hilarious to watch and also very sweet. I'm glad he's interested in music!

little musicians...

Oliver was very gracious and allowed Wyatt to play his guitar for a few minutes. Wyatt was very careful with it.

He had a little trouble holding it but he strummed some good music!

Then they got together and formed a band..Oliver found his harmonica and they played together for a few minutes.

They switched after a bit because Wyatt couldn't hold the guitar up anymore. Poor little arms. They made some..."music" together.

the knight and his noble steed

We got these swords and sheilds at Toys R Us - they were on clearance for a good price so both boys have a set now. They're foam so even if they get hit with one it doesn't hurt that bad. We got Gumbo, the horse, at the Dollar Tree. Oliver rode around all day trying to find a dragon to fight but alas there were none in this fair land.

So he went outside to practice his sword skills.

playing outside

This was actually a few weeks ago. We took a walk and when we got back the boys were still so full of energy that we let them stay out and run around. They chased each other all over the yard. I don't know what they were playing but they sure were having fun.

Bob found a lightning bug and the boys were very fascinated by it. It took a while to catch one since there were only two or three but Bob finally got one. Oliver wasn't afraid to touch it like he usually is. We let it go when they were done looking at it.
