Outback Ray

We have an awesome library in our city and they are always doing fun (and free!) activities for kids.   The most recent activity we went to was a guy named "Outback Ray."  He brought animals with him and gave the kids an  opportunity to pet them.  Emma was the more ambitious between her and Josh and wanted to pet each of the animals, which included a snake, cockroach, hedgehog, bunny and possum.  Josh  was a bit more reserved but he did touch a couple!

Thomas the Train

We took Emma and Josh to see Thomas the Train at our local railway and they were so excited! They had a bunch of activities set up and then we got to go on a train ride, very fun!

How you know its time to go home...the kids were tired and insisted that I carry them both!

Memorial Day

We celebrated Memorial Day on Saturday with my family by having a cookout. In true Ohio fashion, it was too cold to spend much time outside but we still enjoyed spending time together and eating hamburgers and hot dogs!
These kids love appetizers

Can't get enough!
