Our Fall

The fall brought us a very sweet little girl named Mazie Kate. She came 4 weeks early on October 5th.

Beach trip to the Outer Banks, NC

In late May we joined Uncle Greg and Aunt Sarah at the beach. Zachary loved the sand and thought the waves were funny!

Florida

We went to Tampa as a family at the end of February.

From Florida

Randy worked on Friday while Michelle and Zach met up with Heather, Paul, and Ellie.
It was fun to hang with them in Florida, even though they live 10 minutes from us in Richmond.

I am writing now…Zach:

We went and saw manatees and played on the playground. Ellie was so exhausted that she did not get to play with me on the playground.

Dad got me a chocolate cake from Ukrop’s. Mom said I had to have a Ukrop’s cake for my 1st birthday.

From Z Birthday

I didn’t know what to do with it at first. Mom showed me how to eat the icing and then…I love it.

From Z Birthday

Grandma and Grandpa Lee, Unlce Jeremy and Aunt Kim, my neighbors, the Webb’s (Bucky, Teresa, Brody and Braeden), The Belton’s (Matt, Charity, Audrey, and Elliot) and my mom and Dad’s small group came and celebrated with me.

February updates

I, Zach , am finally taking over for a while. Mom is too consumed in other things. A lot has happened since the sledding pictures (with no snow.)

I went back to the construction site and took more pictures of me and the CAT machines.

Zach sledding!

Snow and Ice.

Well we are either desperate, pathetic or creative!
Zach was home “sick” again today, which meant so was Mommy. We are trying to get healthy. This week it is a very goopy eye.

It snowed, hailed, rained, and sleeted all day today. I love going out to have fun! Zach is a great reason to go have fun, especially after being inside for days. He had a blast for the 10 minutes we were sledding. Check out how much snow/ice we really got! Ha ha.

The link below shows a very short (4 sec.) clip of sledding.

Snow in Richmond!

We found snow!! The Children’s Museum made snow outside for the kids to play in over the weekend. Zach went on Friday afternoon. I will let you see his impressions of snow for yourself….

This stuff is freezing on my hands.

From Zachary Jonah

Enough is enough! I can’t believe I am sitting in a kayak in the snow. Does my mom really think this is a fun sled?

From Zachary Jonah

Needless to say Zach did not like the snow. But at least we tried.
