Boo at the Cleveland Zoo

Despite cold rain, Isabella had fun watching the animals perform at night the Boo at the Cleveland Zoo. It was our annual Guat-tot Boo at the Zoo trip but since because of rainy weather we decided to get through the zoo quickly and get somewhere warm. We missed seeing our Guat friends but I was lucky to run into a few families with Guat-tots who were not part of group. They are now thinking about joining. (Yeah for new families!).

We headed to the zoo with Aunt Julie, friend Cassie and Grandma Mary and Papa Steve. Our little sticker stayed pretty dry in her stroller but was excited to jump out to catch the animals in action. It's a different world at the zoo at night! After a wet walk-through of the zoo, we stopped at Quaker Steak & Lube for dinner. Yum!

Don't worry! I'll post more Halloween photos and get back to the huge backlog from late summer.

Bath time

When cousin Hollyn was visiting Ohio from Philadelphia, Isabella helped Aunt Chris with bath time. Isabella loves babies and always wants to hold them, feed them and bathe them.

Down on the Farm

I have lots of catching up to do. We've had a family get-together at the Baldauf farm; Isabella helped give cousin Hollyn a bath during her Ohio visit; we've enjoyed fireworks with friends to celebrate the beginning of fall; we had the first (and last) gymnastics class; we've gathered to see family visiting from Colorado; we've celebrated my 30th birthday (shhhhh!); Kevin and I visited Las Vegas, the Hoover Dam and the Grand Canyon; and we celebrated with Tim and Melissa as we prepare for the arrival of Baby K!

Quite a lot to show you so hang on and watch over the next few weeks for all the Fall photos from the Kramer household!

With all the parties and activities lately, I should have a lot of photos to post. But, no. I've not been good about snapping pics of our favorite Guat kid so I've stolen a few from others blogs. Thanks to those who have captured the kiddo in action.

While I've reported in previous posts that Isabella wanted to be called Isa, she now goes by Bella, Isabella, Isa or Patch. Yes, that's right. Patch. For those who know the Dalmatian movies, Patch is one of Pongo's and Perdita's 99 puppies. If you're lucky or a waiter or a nice lady in the store who tries to talk to her, you may hear her bark at you.

Quite an imagination!

When I talk to people lately about how busy we've been, I feel like all I say is "And we" because it is nonstop around here. Having a three year old is exhausting! Isabella is on the go and so we are on the go with zoo trips, store runs, play dates, story times, etc. And we're working. I guess that's life, though. So check back soon for updates on our crazy busy lives and for details about a new group we are part of: NEO Guatemalan Adoptive Families. Best wishes!
