Lions and Tigers and Bears...

Yesterday Russ and I took Josie to the Zoo for the first time. It was Russ' first time to the Boise Zoo too and I think he had way more fun than Josie. His favorite part was watching the Tiger walk around. Josie really enjoyed the monkeys and penguins and I liked the giraffes. The zoo is quite impressive these days, as Russ would say "it's pretty legit."

Random Pics from the last few weeks:

Russell and Josie enjoying the last days of nice weather.
Josie knows she's not supposed to get into the wipes but she does it anyway.

One of her new favorite things, wearing her blocks around her neck. (Yes I know she looks like a boy here)

New York

Russ and I had a great time in New York City. We walked A LOT, so much that every part of our bodies ached. We went through Times Square many times. Russ' brother Dan works in a building near Times Square. On Friday evening we ate dinner at his office and enjoyed a great view of the Empire State Building. On Saturday we spent the afternoon in the Ironbound distict in New Jersey, where the Brazilian neighborhood is, we ate lunch and Russ got a much needed brazilian fix. Sunday was our last day in the city. We spent some time in Central park and then went to check out the view of the city at Liberty State Park. It was a great trip, we missed Josie a lot, but it was great to get away. Here are some pics from our trip.

Anxiously awaiting the Subway.

In front of the Statue of Liberty... it's that tiny thing to the left.

Happy Birthday Josie!

I am in New York without Josie and I miss her so much. Today is her birthday and I thought I would reminisce. Here are some pictures from the day she came into the world and changed my life forever. I love you Josie... Happy Birthday!
