Grandma Visit!

Last weekend, my mom came to visit for a couple of days and it was so much fun!  We visited the MN Zoo, dyed a TON of noodles for my upcoming busy bag swap, made wax paper leaf art, shopped CHILDLESS(!), and watched chick flick shows, chatting late into the night. I wish we could do that every weekend.  I haven't written about it because I wanted to post the pics but I only post Nikon pics when I blog from the desktop and I can only do THAT when all 3 boys are sleeping (or pretending to) and NOW is the first time it's happened ALL week!  Whew, I've got a lot to get done in the next 60 minutes that just isn't going to happen.

So I said to mom, I'd REALLY like to get a few pics of you and the boys because I was looking for a good one and there just weren't any.  When we get together, we're so busy taking care of the kids, we just don't snap photos (perhaps you never noticed that the good photos are from when Aunt L is here, snapping away?). 

She said, okay, sounds great!  And these are the it.  The grand total of all the pictures I managed to take all weekend.  Buckle up, this may take awhile.
Penguin Exhibit, Take 1 (there is a penguin statue between them)

M, look at the camera! Take 2

Tropics Trail Tortoise Take 1

M!!!! Look at the camera! Take 2

Tropical Fish Exhibit where there was good light, Take 1...stand up, N!

Take 2...oh, forget it.
Yes, I managed to take 6 pictures in 48 hours...really, 1 hour at the MN Zoo.  And while my mom looks FANTASTIC!, my kids....(sigh). They are all smiling in photos 2 and 4, so I guess that's as good as it gets.  And it's also the reason why I hire professional photographers.  Love you, mom!  We'll try again next month!!
