It's Superman and Super Cowboy!

As most everyone knows, AJ is completely obsessed with Toy Story. He must now regularly wear a cowboy hat. It's fun when you want to take a walk around the neighborhood, but we must wear the cowboy hat that keeps blowing off and a grumpy AJ in tow because it won't stay on his head! Anyways, before bedtime AJ insisted on wearing his cowboy hat with his superman jammies, too cute not to take a picture.

Story Time

The boys always read books before bed, but a few weeks ago, AJ decided to start a new tradition. Before they each get their own books read to them, Tommy now reads a book to AJ in his bed. AJ decided this one day, probably because he was delaying the bedtime process and ran into Tommy's room instead of his own. But it's not a bad tradition to keep! Tommy has a handful of books that he has memorized that he reads to AJ. It's very cute to watch them read to each other. Here Tommy is reading "You Are My I Love You."

White Sox Game

About a month ago, Chris, Poppy T, and Tommy attended a White Sox game. This was Tommy's first baseball game ever. Chris said he did great. He has been obsessed with baseball ever since. We play it every evening and he even sits and watches games with Chris now. He knows a ton of players of the White Sox and loves to watch them all play. It's great to see Tommy so interested in baseball. We can't wait to take him to another game soon!

Nothing better than summertime in Southwest Michigan

Binder Park Zoo

I know, it's been awhile. I've received a few notes from people (Scott), that the blog needs some updating. I wish I had some great excuse as to why the updates this summer have been far and few between, but I don't. Other than it's summer and we are enjoying it and at the end of the day I would rather relax to terrible reality tv than blog. Anyways, I will try and be better about it now!

We discovered a great zoo in our area called the Binder Park Zoo. I would say it's a hidden gem. We've been there twice now on the weekends and it's never overly crowded which is so nice. You won't see a lot of the typical zoo animals here, so it's kind of a nice change of pace in that respect. One of the great things about this zoo is that you can feed the giraffes! It's so cool. The giraffes are in a huge field along with zebras and other animals. You stand on a deck and can give the giraffes lettuce. It's really neat to see them so close. AJ and Tommy absolutely loved it. Tommy was a bit apprehensive at first and wanted us to help him, I have to admit, the tongues are a little creepy! However, AJ jumped right in and fed them laughing the whole time. We had a wonderful day at the zoo and hope to go back again soon. If you live in the area I highly recommend checking it out.
