…Let’s go walkin’
And we’ll talk about some things
Kick my shoes off,
And we’ll dream about some dreams
Got to get away when the world
Gets on me

Kids in the park
Don’t take long before
I’m laughing along with them
Almost makes me think
Those times can come again
Gets me feelin’ good and yet sad
At the same time…
(Sunday Sun by Neil Diamond)

This week Nana and Pa came to visit, and we decided to take the boys to the zoo; the Philadelphia Zoo was the first zoo in America. We had a nice day although it rained on us while we were in the park. Alex and Adam really enjoyed the primates…probably because they’re a couple of monkeys themselves…

Crusin’ into the park with Mama…as you can see, Adam is underwhelmed.

The Silverback Gorilla contemplates the nature of the universe…or maybe he’s just really, really bored.

One day left in Nana and Pa’s visit. We spent it at Warminster Park; the boys love the playground, especially the slides and the swings…

Pa pushes Alex and Adam on the swings. Looks like they really got airborne; Alex get’s really tickled at that…

Alex slides, while Nana is very overprotective…

Adam slides, while Nana waits overprotectively, as usual 🙂

Adam climbs the stairs. He wants to grow-up so much, and refuses to take the stairs on his hands-and-knees…

Alex considers what to do next. Where’s Nana?

After mom and the boys have returned from Disney, we spent a relaxing Saturday at Auntie GiGi’s. A day culminated in a “Low-Down Country Boil” with crab legs, shrimp, fish, corn-on-the-cob, and much more!

Great food…

Cindy and the boys, along with Auntie GiGi and Big Sisters Jessica and Kameran, took a road trip to Disney World. They spent three days at the Caribbean Beach Resort and visited the Magic Kingdom, EPCOT Center, and Animal Kingdom…

You can’t visit Disney without spinning your head off on the Tea Cup ride…

Locked-up for a photo op! Alex thinks this resembles too closely a crib, and he’s not at all ready to take a nap…

Today, the boys took their first trip by airplane. The boys actually slept for about half of the two-hour flight from Philly to Jacksonville, Florida. Here’re a couple pictures of the most enjoyable part of the trip…

First, Alex:

Then, Adam:

All-in-all it was a pretty smooth flight, if you overlook Alex’s last-minute spitting-up episode(s)…yuk!

Tonight, we’re spending the night with Cindy’s sister’s family. Tomorrow, Cindy, her sister and the boys are heading to South Florida to visit Nanny and Poppy, then it’s Disney World!

Me? I’m working 🙁
