Day 4

The Christmas Season - Part 2
On Christmas day, we decided to take a walk to the duck pond to feed the ducks. It was such a pretty day - perfect for a walk. The ducks were hungry, but unfortunate for them, the seagulls were more hungry. Every time the boys would throw a piece of bread in, the gulls would snatch it before the ducks could. Poor ducks! Smile! Please Smile! Come on Ben,...fine!

Having a little bottle. Kate was hungry too!

Fun times with grandpa and grandma!

A sandbox for Christmas. 6 feet of sand to play in, complete with storage compartment for sand toys which also doubles as a little bench to sit on while the kiddies play!

The National Zoo
The National Zoo!We discovered that the best day of the year to go the zoo is on New Year's Day. We went first thing in the morning, parked in the closest parking lot, enjoyed the animals with NO ONE ELSE (they were all home enjoying their day off I guess), and got home for nap time and the football game the guys wanted to see! Brilliant! Guess where we will be next year on New Year's Day?

Some of our favorite animals...nice cow, huh?

My favorite animals!
