Its a Zoo

Friday was a scheduled weather day for us so we had the day off. We decided to go to the zoo with our friends the Milligan’s and had a wonderful time. Alyssa took some great pictures with my camera but this is the best I think.

Here is another she took:

and of course I have a few I took:

There was a really pretty flower garden area and I wanted to take Aly's picture there and her comment was..." No way it looks like one of those places you take a wedding picture" so Erik had to pose her!

Aly's and mom:

All the kids:

Me and Danette:

Help My Kids

Its a very easy thing to do...

Autism Speaks created a music video of the Five for Fighting song, "World" which features images of autistic children and their families. The band is generously donating $0.49 to Autism Speaks for each time the video is viewed.

When you have a moment, please visit the link below to watch the video and pass it along to your friends and family. They are aiming for 10,000 hits, but hopefully we can help them surpass this goal. There is no cost, obligation, or solicitation. It just takes a moment of your time.
