New addition to our family

Well it seems we are adding Hunter to our family. His dad decided to live in a place where he can not have pets. So therefore Hunter is being left behind. It is a shame because Hunter can be a really good dog when he knows he is being loved. It breaks me heart for him to have to be bounced into another shelter or in another home where he can possibly not be loved as much. So Hunter will be living with us now. We have to work with him on some things, but overall he is happier here and he loves us and Emma Jean. He is a rather large dog as you can see in the pictures below, but he has a really large heart for all of us in turn. Thank you Hunter for being a part of our family.

Hunter and Emma, you can see the size differnce.

This is Hunter's front paw in my hand after I told him he has a forever home.

Cincinnati Mommies!

I have met some of the best gals in my mommies group! Btw if you are in the Cincinnati area you need to check us out! If you are outside of the Cincinnati area take a look on and see if there is one in your area! I think that this group of gals are the best! I have learned, laughed, cried and laughed some more with these gals. Here are some pictures of the grill out I had here last Sunday and some of the mommies came!

This is Beth and I, she is our Site Administrator. Her husband is hilarious and she has a son who is 7 (who has become Adam's BFF), a daughter who is 5, and B/G twins who are 3! This girl helps keep me sane on most days!

This is Mary, she is in my East Central Group, what's awesome is she lives right up the road from me! Mary has a loving husband and has a son who is 3.

And this is Holly. She is my partner in crime! She is my Assistant Moderator for our East Central Group. Holly has a wonderful husband, a son who is almost 2 and she is due with son number two in August!

Loosing weight and it feels great!

So it has been a little over a week since I started with and I have lost 4 lbs already and some inches. I am so pumped about this website! It is amazing how focused you get on what you eat when you have to log each and every piece of food you eat. I will keep everyone updated on my progress!!!

4th of July

So it is the boys first 4th of July, and they are in bed, Adam is with his grandmother, and Kyle is at work. I am here sitting at my computer by myself... what is wrong with this picture? Tomorrow we have the grill out at Fred's and then on Sunday we are having a grill out here. I am hoping things get better soon around here... stress levels are quite high.

More zoo pictures

Aiden and Daddy saying hello to momma

Momma, Nate and Adam all smiles :)

Aiden was so confused on why I was taking so many pictures

Mommy and Nate looking at fish

The pretty Bengal tiger was giving everyone a show

Family time at the Zoo

This past Monday we went to the Columbus Zoo. It was a first for everyone but Kyle who used to live in Columbus. We had a great time despite the rain. The animals in that zoo were much more showy than our animals here at the Cincinnati Zoo. We had an amazing time, and I got some pretty good pictures... so here you go!

The Koala was way too cute, he was eating his leaves and he seemed quite content

Aiden loved looking at the snakes, he was trying to get them through the glass lol

Now the Kangaroo were just plain neat! You walked into a fenced in area, and they were right there, walking around with you!

It rained a few times while we were there, but the Orangutan's were happy cuddling under there huts.

Poor little Nate was cut out of the picture because he was too busy trying to reach for the camera, but non the less it is a good picture of Kyle and I <3
