Chalk Up Another One!

Another great day for the Layman family! The four of us had a great time at the zoo today! What another wonderful fall day! We enjoyed lots of animals...but also took advantage of a ride pass and rode several rides! Seth and mommy rode the new sky ride...a little nerve racking for mommy...Seth has no fear and seemed to be sitting too close to the edge for mommy to really enjoy the ride! The new African Journey is going to be quite the exhibit when it is done. Then all four of us also rode the train and boat. Kate was lovin' every minute of both! She was such a big girl and sat all by herself (next to me, of course) on the train.

Then...the kids and I headed over to my parents for dinner...Andy stayed home as he appears to be fighting off some kind of "ICK". What a treat for Seth as we were joined by the cousins, as well as Doug and Amy! It has been a long time since I've seen them. Kate was lovin' all the attention and distraction too! Wouldn't you know the boys would find the new compost pile for diggin'....straight into the bath after this one!

Kate continues to do well....she is looking great to all of us! Every day, she seems to get a little stronger! I'm anxious to see what happens this week concerning a trip to Michigan and her weight gain....we go in for our weekly check on Monday afternoon!

What a great day for all of you. We're fighting the ick here in the Hess household too. Seems to be going around. Kate looks wonderful in the pictures. Being home definately agrees with her. Praying for great weight gain today!

Wow! Sounds like Fort Wayne Zoo is really growing. I miss all the fun fall stuff. No fall colors in Florida - just year round flowers which are very pretty. It is so good to see Kate finally enjoy being a little girl outide of the hospital scene. All those fun things and being outside should make her sleep well - and gain some weight. Will continue the prayers. Etta
