A Doctor Visit with Charlie and Jayna...

This month I got to go with my daughter to a Dr. appt. I had been hoping that she would ask me to go and I was so excited when she asked me if I wanted to. Of course I wanted to go! She and her husband are due to have their first baby and our first grand-daughter around the end of August/first of September. While we were waiting for the Dr. to see her I asked her to do the heart hands on her belly so I could take a picture ( I just LOVE these pictures) and I had to have one. So even though I don't think she wanted to she did. THANKS CHARLIE. I Love You. When the Dr. came in and put the doppler on her belly, she instantly found the HEART BEAT and boy or should I say GIRL was it strong and fast. This is definately one of the greatest moments of my life and I am so happy that I got to share this with her.

Got Sketch 101 Class LO...

"TRACTOR TROUBLES" My grandson and his John Deere tractor. It was so cute how he would bend down while sitting on the tractor and use his hand to make it go. Then when it would get stuck he would get off the tractor and even though he was to little to push it out of the snow he would push with all his might. After a bit of letting him try his Daddy helped him push it out.

The Koalas and the Kodiak 08...

The Koalas were the reason we waited a week for our Annual Zoo Trip. They were very cute but not active at all (they do sleep 18 hours a day) and the display wasn't all that great. There were just a couple of trees for them to sit in and they were separated by a glass wall, enclosed in glass and there were some bright lights that put a terrible glare on the glass. Seemed strange but I'm sure there was a reason for it being this way. Anyway I could only get a picture of one of them as the other one was pretty much facing the back wall of the display. So here it is...

If you look closely you can see his eyes open.
This only happened for a brief moment and I managed to
get a decent picture of it. Isn't it CUTE?
