Back to the Zoo...

We went back to the zoo
with a bunch of "I Love NY" groupies!
aka the cousins! Amanda brought back a bunch of t-shirts when she went to New York and we thought they would look cute wearing them all together

Posing with the wild life...
Gramps and Gram came, too! We see them all the time and don't often take pictures with them, so we decided it was time they were added to the blog and scrapbook.

On the August long weekend we went to Shuswap for a family gathering with the Stobbes. Eleven of the twelve great-grandchildren were there (with another one on the way) and Rachael was the second oldest - the youngest was a week and a half old! Here they all are with Oma and Opa.
We slept in a very small motel room. It had a double bed with a single bunk bed above it. The girls both wanted to sleep there so they squished it out for a few nights. Besides, it's way more fun sleeping together on a bunk bed!
Rachael hit it off great with her second-cousins Abby and Tim. You'd have thought they played together all the time!
And Kaitlyn found a friend her age - Tim's sister Meghan.

We went to the beach a couple of times and had yummy ice cream!
And we had campfires and roasted lots of marshmallows!
We had a fun weekend. Almost everyone was able to come.

We hope to see everyone again at the wedding at Christmas!
