I’ve been meaning to post these since we got back from Michigan a month ago.

This is from our trip to the zoo–my mom took this photo of Mary playing with the goats:

and here is a picture of me and Melissa in 1989 at the same zoo. Please disregard our 80s hair.

I have a TON of pictures from our trip, so I will not be posting them all tonight…but here are a few!

On Sunday, my mom invited family over to eat and visit. Here’s Julie, Grandpa M., and Wesley [note Wesley’s mischievous smirk!]:

On Monday, we went to the zoo! My sister was home by then, so our party consisted of Melissa, Mom, me, Mary, and Wesley.

This was nearly Mary’s first stroller experience. She dug it.

We bought giraffe biscuits to feed the giraffes. It was awesome.

Sorry I don’t have almost any zoo pics of Wesley–he was in the baby carrier a lot of the time. My mom has pictures; I’ll steal some for my next blog post!
