Mother's Day, Carnival fun, Put me in the Zoo

We've had a busy few months! We had a great visit from Grandma Harris and Aunt Lisa. We took the boys to a local Carnival, which was fun for about the first 10 minutes. Gabe loved the giant slide and the truck roller-coaster. Nana took Grant for a ride on the Carousel. We also went to the Bronx Zoo with some friends from church. It was a great trip! The boys loved seeing all of the animals, especially the Elephants. Nana bought elephant stuffed animals for each of them, and "elephant" has become Gabe's new favorite toy. Then we celebrated Mothers Day. Michael took some fun pictures of us playing together. I also cut my hair short for the first time in almost 10 years. Wahoo! I love it short!

Mimi and Papa visit

We had a great visit from Mimi and Papa. Mimi ran the Boston Marathon (go Mimi!) so we got to spend a few days playing together before her race. Papa also took pictures of the race, and got an amazing shot of the winner crossing the finish line!

Gabe has also discovered his love for taking pictures. I figure it must be genetic at this point. :) Talented Papa and Daddy have passed on the photography gene. Michael taught Gabe how to use his old digital camera, and Gabe hasn't stopped taking unflattering pictures of us yet.
