Saturday we went to the Abilene Zoo and walked around in the sunshine.
I thought this was really sweet--Ally grabbed one of the tabs on Rich's pants while we were walking along.
Then to Target to pick up a few things we needed, and of course, to buy some presents for the kids. Aidan picked a 288-piece Lego project. It was really the only thing he wanted so I didn't want to say no. Rich tried to warn me off, seeing what the future would look like in the hotel room. The box was full of tiny pieces and confusing instructions. But Grandpa put aside his "I told you so" and went to work helping Aidan.
Later we met up with friends at Jim's house and went out for dinner. Most of the photos did not turn out but here are "the boys," Jim, Aidan and Rich. Does Aidan look like he is controlling these two or what?
Sherri, Susan, Jim, Karen and Jane with Aidan in front. It's always so great to see these friends who've been with me through thick and thin.
Ally is such a sweet girl. She almost always has a smile on her face and a big twinkle in her eyes. She enjoyed playing some kids' games on the computer and could recognize most of the letters of the alphabet. She also had fun singing songs and telling us about her friends, including her "boyfriend," Raleigh.
