Day Number. . .3!

We went to the Cincinnati Zoo! And this is what greeted us. . . an on the loose peacock!

It was raining that day on and off. So most of the time we were running from building to building.

Fruit bats.

Dad and 'Siah (That's what we call Josiah, for short.)

This is a manatee. You usually don't see them at zoo's, so it was neat seeing one there!

The wolf is one of my favorite animals!! I like the howl sound it makes along with the way it looks!

Joy and Joshy.

Another wolf.

When we were about to leave, this peacock had its feathers opened!

Here are three of the boys.

All of us kids by the entrance of the zoo.

And another night in the pool!

The 2nd Day of Our Vacation!

After a peaceful sleep. . .

. . . we went to the Newport Aquarium!

This was our greeter! JK!

A jellyfish chandelier.

Things did get stressful at times! (As you can probably tell!)

This is called a "shark-ray". I thought it was pretty interesting. The head is like a sting-ray and the rest of the body is like a shark. The people put a shark and a sting-ray together in one tank and this is what they got!

The head of an eel.

Here's Nomi feeding some birds.

These birds likes my dad, alot! They were all over him!

And when we went back to the hotel. . .

. . . of course, more swimming!
(I'll post the third day soon, I hope!)

Vacation 2008!

We just took a four day vacation to Kentucky and Ohio. We stayed at a "La Quinta Inn".

It was my dad's 36th birthday that day, too. So before we left, we celebrated it.

Then it was time to. . . hit the road!

And, of course, we have to keep the twins quiet who are right behind him! So we do what ever we can!

I like this picture of the clouds.

"Are you excited?"

The first day we got there kind of late (around 8 pm!). So we just got settled and went in the indoor pool! (I love the pool!)

Here's Joy trying to stay afloat!

And that was the end of the first day.
(I'll post the other days, too. Just be patient!)
"Boots" pinched Christian today! Not good!

Our New Pet

The other day my mom came home with a hermit crab! We use to have hermit crabs before, like five to seven at a time! But they all eventually died so it's been a while since we had one.

His name is Boots.

The kids watching him.
