Jack's 3...almost

This past weekend we were so excited to spend some time with my family.  They came down early since the kids didn't have school on Friday and it was AWESOME to have 2 full days with them.  That's a rarity!  They wanted to come see us and celebrate a certain grandson/nephew's birthday a little bit early.  We had beautiful weather for their visit and jam packed as much in as possible.  On Saturday we got up early and I drug the whole bunch to the zoo for Pancakes for Penguins!  I was really excited to use our zoo membership (early bday present for Jack) for the first time and of course support the cause of getting penguins back to the zoo.  It was a huge success considering we stood in line for an hour until we actually got our pancakes.  But- they were yummy and a nice breakfast before we trekked across Africa and part of Australia.  Afterward we came home and sung happy birthday and let Jack open a few presents.  It was a fabulous weekend and makes me wish my family lived closer.  Some day, maybe...
Here are a few pictures from our weekend-
