Luke is driving the gator. Andrew is shot gun with
Olivia and Zane in the back. The humidity
has made Olivia's hair so curly!
TADA!! It's stained..finally. Mark worked really hard
and we had lots of help.

We celebrated the house being done by going
to the zoo this past weekend.

We were cleaning up the yard and piling up pieces of
leftover wood on the firewood pile. The gator came in
really handy. The boys worked really hard.
We went to the Toledo Zoo and had lots of fun.
This picture is for Grandma Joan who hates snakes.

Luke and Zane helping to push the Gator and Andrew
up a little hill. Team work. Team work.

Playing Grocery Store is so much fun! Zane asked me if they could
use real food from the pantry to put in the shopping cart. I agreed and later
heard Luke say, "Is this on sale?" Zane's reply was, "It's on my list."
The flashlight Zane is hanging up was the 'beeper' and Luke was the Beeper Lady!
Olivia was handing Luke the groceries and Andrew was the bag boy.
The past weeks we have been busy staining the exterior of the house.
No, Zane is not really staining! He's only in training to help in another 4-5 years.
He wanted to be on scaffolding like Daddy and
he even paints with this tongue sticking out-like Mark.
Zane and Andrew liked putting water in buckets and using a little brush to help 'stain.'

Photo taken at Hocking Hills-Old Man's Cave. Luke got his hands in the water
every chance he had. Here, he climbed out on a limb so he could splash around.
