After picking up Kelly and Phil from the airport Thursday night, the rest of the clan - Scott, Julie, Nick, Noelle, and Catie, along with Ron and Pam - joined us Friday morning for a trip to the Kansas City Zoo. The most exciting part was riding the new sky tram through Africa. I think everyone enjoyed that!
We had snacks, walked around Africa, saw many kinds of animals, and I think the kiddos had fun!
|The happy couple - 45 years happy!|

|Noelle with Kelly, then Phil with Nick!|
|Max and Catie having fun on Daddy and Phil's shoulders!|
The next morning, my acquaintance Shefaly Lindsay came over to take family pictures. All of them are really great - but here's a little taste.
|Pretty cute little family!|
|Phil and Kelly playing with Max...|
|Grandma, Grandpa, and all the grandkiddos.|
Sunday morning, we enjoyed brunch at the Eldridge followed by bowling at the Jaybowl in the union. Nick really got his form down, everyone took a turn with the kids' ramp, and all had fun.
|Grandpa is so silly!|
|That form is coming along!|
It was a really fun weekend thanks to all of the hard work by Grandpa and Grandma getting everyone in place and everything planned.
