Time flies when you're...BUSY

We had a super busy, yet FUN, holiday weekend. Here's a quick look at all we did over Memorial Day weekend:

Ben had a haircut on Friday, so Mommy had to experiment with a new hair style. Check out my little rockstar!

Gigi and Papa also came in on Friday night to visit for the weekend. We picked up some pizzas from Papa Murphy's (we recommend the 5 meat stuffed and chicken delite)

On Saturday we headed to the zoo! I know it seems like we are there A LOT, but we have season passes (compliments of Uncle Todd), so it make it easy to head over there, even if just for an hour or two. Ella wasn't feeling great, but she was happy to be carried around by her Daddy in the baby carrier. Unfortunately, since Ella was being carried the entire visit instead of riding in the stroller, Ben also had to be carried. So we kept rotating who had to carry him.

Super Daddy!!!!

As always, the aquarium is Ben's favorite, so we spent alot of time with the "fishys". Ella seems to really like them too.

Here are Ben and his Gigi checking out the manatee

And Ella with her Papa

This is about the time everyone started to poop out, so we left the zoo and headed to Polaris for a little lunch and some shopping

On Sunday we went to a cookout held by friend's of Matt's parents. Ben was super-excited about the cookout for several reasons :

1) There were cows and alpacas right next to the playground

2) Ben was able to play with his friends Alex and Grady

3) We also got the chance to spend some time with Uncle Todd and Uncle Jeff

Ella was still not feeling great, but she seemed to have a nice time anyway

Ben had so much fun that he didn't want to leave. He thought if he hid from us, we wouldn't have to go home. Can you find him?

After dinner that night we headed over to visit the family that lives across the street - Devon, Tonya, Brock and Ava. They had baby kittens that Ben really wanted to meet!

They also have 2 very sweet horses, Duke and George, that Ben loved. He kept running over to the stable and standing on a chair to pet them. I didn't get any pictures of them, but I will the next time we are over there.

Ella was just happy to have Ava push her all over the place. Notice the spatula that Ella carries around everywhere. She is teething and has decided that a spatula is the best thing to chew on.

On Monday we went to the Memorial Day parade in Bellefontaine. This was Ella's first parade and she was VERY EXCITED. Of course, she had to bring her spatula with her

Ben loved seeing the firetrucks, police cars, and horses

And Papa was even in the parade!!
