We were also lucky to have a spur-of-the-moment visit from my friend Luke and his daughter, Annie. I hadn't ever met Annie so it was great to meet her. Ruby and Annie hit it off right away!
We have been having lots of fun with the kiddos in the 'hood. Ruby and Carden regularly ask for each other and love to play together. Here they re-enacting The Carpenters:
This past weekend, Ruby and I took a trip to the zoo with my friend Shannon. Ruby kept asking for Koko so we spent a lot of time at the gorilla exhibit where we watched mama gorilla eat her own throw-up over and over (yeah, nice but the kids were lovin' it!). Ruby kept saying, "Ew! Gross!" but we could barely tear her away from watching that and the baby and the big silverback. She was also very impressed with the penguins and, though a little nervous at first about sitting near these little windows, warmed up to it as she watched the little guys swim right by her face. More summer fun to come!
