Greek Food Festival (May 17th)

Every Spring the Greek Orthodox Church holds it annual Greek Food Festival. Dad, Barbara, the girls and I all decided to go experience a little Greek food and fun. The festival was a lot of fun, there was free face painting and other activities for the kids. The girls had to get their faces painted and tattoos on their arms before we could even eat. The adults enjoyed great Greek food while the girls at hot dogs. NJ and Emma really enjoyed watching the Greek dancing which we could see from our table. After some shopping at the great arts and craft booths we headed back to the Village. We did have to make a stop at Krispy Kreme on our way home.

NJ enjoys any chance she gets to put face paint on or dress up
There were several performances, this was the one with little kids
Emma was so tired!!
She passed out as soon as we got in the car.

Zoo (May 1st)

We make many trips a year to the zoo but this time we went with the kids in our Mother's Day Out program. We had a great day, it was a little chilly in the morning but we were very thankful it wasn't hot. The kids enjoyed looking at all the animals and spending some time outside with their friends. The train ride was a big hit as always and then we enjoyed lunch at the new restaurant in the zoo. We stayed a little longer then everyone else and looked at the snakes which are NJ's favorite.

Emma tried to look over all the walls but she needed a little help most of the time

Over half my pictures are of the backside of the kids
