The funny thing is that I wasn't sure if he was ready for them or not, but Jared dumped out the whole box of Cheerios on the floor, and we keep finding them everywhere. Or I should say Owen keeps finding them everywhere. I watched him pick one up and eat it - he did fine. Bring on the cheerios!
It actually was a very inexpensive day. We took advantage of 75 cent admission and 75 cent hotdogs on Wednesdays (in July and August). We had a good day at the zoo - it was raining when we left home this morning, so I was skeptical about the weather for the day's adventures. But it turned out to be just a cloudy muggy day. The boys favorite thing was the playground, water misters, animal statues (who goes to the zoo to see real animals?), and the seals. I really liked the giant tortoises - I didn't see those last time we went, and they're just cool.

I don't appreciate the mess, but it's neat to see their imagination. The broom and mop are their oars. Oh, and Owen (not pictured) is the shark, who looms around the ship, which is okay until they start trying to fend off (kicking and hitting with their oars) the shark attack...

Alex and I went to the temple yesterday. We took the boys with us and traded off watching them. Here's just a few pics from our visit. The night ones were a little blurry, but I thought one of them looked particularly "spirit-ual".

My days of getting things done when Owen is awake are over. Now I am following him around, picking up the things he can't have and watching his every move. And his crawling got him into trouble this morning - he took a nose dive off the bed. I fed him and he went right back to sleep, so he went right beside me in our bed. The only problem is that he woke up before I did, and crawled right off the end of the bed. His nose is a little swollen. Poor guy. I won't be getting any mommy awards today...

Big O is 7 months old today AND he is not the littlest baby cousin/grandchild. Today Auntie Ashley had her baby girl HAILEY! Hooray! Congratulations to them - we can't wait to meet her.
Big O still has trouble getting from his back to his tummy. Sometimes he gets stuck... and it reminds me of a junebug or beetle that gets stuck and its arms and legs are in the air.
