Toledo Zoo Fisher Price Weekend

The Toledo Zoo had a Fisher Price weekend this past weekend and we went to check the new toys out (as well as see the animals). They had a tent with all kind sof new FP toys that the kids could play with and try out. Syd had fun playing with the people oriented activities. They also had a test-drive track with all their new FP Power Wheels vehicles. While we were waiting I asked Syd which one she was going to try out. She kept pointing at the Escalade and saying she wanted to drive that one. But there was this really cool new four wheeler that Zack and I were trying to convince her to test. When it came time to actually make the decision she chose the Jeep below, which seemed silly to Zack and me since she has a Jeep at home that she can drive any time. She seemed to have a good time driving it around. Diego and the new Planet Heroes were supposedly walking around the zoo too, but we didn't run into any of them. It was over 90 degrees out, so we wondered if they wimped out.

The zoo also had a mini-dog show going on. We got to watch a Border Collie race against a child in the dog obstacle course. Then they brought out some of their petting zoo animals to introduce them to the children in the audience. Below you see Zack and Syd with a pot bellied pig.

And, of course, we had to end the day at the playground area. Here's Syd posing with a grizzly bear.

T-Ball is almost over

Syd has had a great time playing t-ball this summer. I finally remembered to bring the camera and got a picture of her getting ready to bat (we have video of her actually batting). This picture is from the second to last game of the season. Next week they play their last game and have a celebration with medals and all. It's been nice. Grandma and Grandpa Capwell have come to all her games and after we all go out for dinner. Syd has enjoyed them being there and spending time with them after.

Swimming at Country Campground

This past weekend we went camping at a local campground - Country Campground (http://www.countrycampgroundllc.com/) with the Raiters. We had a good time. Our tents were on a pond where Syd fished a lot. Of course the best part for Syd was the fact that they had a swimming pool. Here's one picture of her taunting the guys just before she jumped in to splash them.

4th of July

We went camping in New York (Watkins Glen area) the weekend before the 4th of July. We camped with my aunt and uncle, cousin, and second cousins.
We had lots of fireworks. We always stop on our way there in Pennsylvania to pick up a load of them.

Syd took Dani for some walks in the woods.

And Syd even found a newt.

We got back from New York on Wednesday the 4th, so we went with Grandma and Grandpa Capwell to the fireworks in BG.
