Zoo Trip



Melissa and I took our kids to the zoo today. We all had a great time - nice weather and not too crowded. We got to see the bird show and ride the train. Gavin was even willing to wear his "backpack" with a tail, although it wasn't really his friend. Some of the animals seemed to be missing though. And, there was a big monkey fight that scared us to death (me & Gavin anyway). Melissa, Liam, and Trevan went running back in to see if they could see the fight, but it was over. It sounded like they were going to kill someone.

Clear Creek

Liam was able to go to Clear Creek the first week of June. It's a fun camp that our school district owns. His friend David was able to go the same week and they ended up in groups that were together most of the time. He really liked it.

Air Show at Hill AFB


Jim, Liam, Gavin and I picked up Eric and headed to the air show at Hill AFB on Saturday. It was great, but the traffic was not. It took us over 3 1/2 hours to get there. Poor kids. At least we brought DVDs to watch. The weather was great and we had a really fun day.

The Thunderbirds show was great. Gavin had a bit of a problem when one flew right over us and scared him to death. Other than that, and the fact that he was so tired, I think he liked it.
