The Traveling Jacket :)

My step mom has this adorable jean jacket from the Gap that she has had literally for YEARS for when my brothers and youngest sister were little. It is now called the traveling jacket because it does just that! It travels now to each of the grandkids. I have had it now for 4 years and now it gets to travel back to Arizona for Kelsey's little girl to wear! My boys haven't ever really gotten to actually wear it because by the time it actually fit them it was summer time and too warm to wear it. But I still got some pictures of them both wearing it. You can see Parker's here. And here are Tyler's!!

I had forgotten about it because we hadn't needed to wear coats for quite awhile, so when we got home from Arizona I pulled it out and tried it on him and get a picture of him wearing it and found it actually is a tiny bit small for him...Oh well, he still looks cute in it and he was actually posing for the camera! haha

Phoenix Zoo - October 15, 2012

Today we decided to go with Valerie, her two youngest kids, Ella and Nathan Jr, and hers and Chris' dad to the zoo. It was pretty fun, but we could only stay for a couple hours because it is so big and it was getting to hot. 
 Some of the things we saw were the biggest turtles ever...
 I love this picture...Tyler just ran up on his own and grabbed his grandpa's sweet! He NEVER wants to hold our hands!
 And Parker took a turn to push the stroller :)
 Snack Time!!
 Tyler's expression cracks me up! haha
 They took a ride on the Merry Go 'Round...
 ...Saw the giraffes...
 ...and got to pet the stingrays...OR just play in the water like the boys did!
It was a lot of fun to spend some time with Val and her family. We wish we lived closer so we could do more stuff together!
