Celebrating Birthday

We celebrated Daphne (3rd) and Kera's (4th) birthday while they were in town. Instead of another cake (we had a lot of cake that week and weekend), we celebrated with a kuchen (that is, a coffee cake for those non-Bohemian readers).

Then, Ken & Kera opening gifts....Daphne & Kevin & me opening gifts...
Goofy cousins.

Daphne's Birthday

Daphne wanted to go to the zoo on her birthday. So we went.... only to find it was dollar day and there were a ton of people there. And they also had crafts, so Daphne had more fun in addition to just seeing the animals.
She also got her face painted and rode on the train... and had cotton candy (that's what is in her hand).
Seeing the animals.When Kevin got home that evening, we went to the pool...

And then we had a princess cake... (her face looks funny because of the butterfly paint)
And she opened presents.

I think that Kevin thinks Daphne is older than 3 years....

How much does Daphne love her brother?

Daphne likes to have Joey lay on her belly, like Mommy and Daddy.
Just showing her love...

Visiting over the 4th

We went up to Cleveland over the 4th. Our first big trip with the new baby. We only had to stop twice to feed Joey (but on the way back, we managed with only one stop). and Jeoy was introduced to lots of new people, family and friends.

First of all - Thank you Jim for letting use your pool!

Look at this bathing beauty!

Joey's first time at a pool.
An Olympian backflipper (that might have ended with a big back slap on the water).
Kevin and Daphne.
Having fun. It took me 3 tries to actually get Daphne in the camera frame - I think Kevin kept tossing her higher and higher.
Swimming by herself.
Daphne was learning the art of sunbathing.
This is Joey's one month picture (taken on 6/26/09 - it just takes me awhile to post the pictures)
Justin & Jackson joined us for the swim.Jack jumping in from the side of the pool.

At the zoo

I think we picked the hottest day of the year so far...
Look at those curls!!

Joey's first trip to the zoo and he's sleeping by the insects - I think they may be cockroaches.
