Happy 4th of July!!!

The first picture is actually from Sunday! We had a very nice picnic for Joyce and David's Birthdays! I think everyone had a good time. I know John and I did.

John and I went to the Butler Fair on the 4th...but it was hot so we decided to go swimming! We went to Conley's Waterpark. We were the only ones there. We had a wonderful time.

The last is a video John took with the waterproof camera!! We have had alot of fun with that thing!

Toledo Zoo

The day after we went to Kalahari...we went to the Zoo with the Vulhops. J.J. found out that the Toledo Zoo had a hippo...I have never seen a real hippo before!! We went to the Cleveland Zoo last year to see their hippo but it had been retired! : (

So this trip we actually got to see the hippos!! They were inside so we didn't get really go pictures of them...but better than nothing!

I really liked the was huge! And also the big lipped fish..don't know the name of it...but check out the size of its lips!! They also had a baby elephant...It was fun to watch playing with a stick!


We decided we needed a few days off work...So we went to Kalahari! It is a huge water park in Ohio. We had a really good time! The Vulhops also went. I cant wait to go back!!

We bought a waterproof camera to take with us!! I think it took fairly nice pictures . My favorite one is John under the water!

Project of the week!


John decided he wanted to remove the old grape vine and replace with new grapes. The Blair boys were over helping Mom with some outside we "borrowed" them to help with the vines.

These pictures are the final result! I think they did a wonderful job!

APRIL 25, 2011

Hope your not tired of fishing pictures yet!! The year has just begun! : )

We went fishing at Moraine State Park today also. Again we caught lots of perch and blue gills. It did rain today as well but not while we were fishing. We both actually got a little too much sun! I look like a lobster! I knew I should have got the sun screen out!!!

This picture is from a couple weeks ago... but I thought it was cool!! I saw this bird swoop down and grab the fish out of the water!!
