We belong to the ZOO!!

That's right - we belong to the zoo!! We got a one year membership - and so far Harrison is LOVING it (of course it's not 100 degrees outside yet either)!! So... this wasn't really Harrison's first trip to the zoo - however it was Harrison's first trip to the zoo with dad (and the first time I remembered to take pictures)!! One of our first stops - the meerkats... Here's Harrison enjoying the view from above! And Dad and Harrison as meerkats!
The gorillas are always fun to watch...
But our REAL favorite is the pandas!!! They even have panda stamps - so Harrison had to get one of those! Days later - the stamp has washed off - but he still looks down at his had and says "PANDA"!!
Isn't he cute!!
and our last stop... the petting zoo! Hey dad - didn't I tell you the animals with the red collars are "feisty"!!

Our little movie star!

So this first video is what happens when you ask Harrison his name.  I swear we did not teach him this - we call him HARRISON and plan on keeping it that way - so don't go getting any ideas! :)
This happened one night - and we thought it was hilarious... nothing too exciting - just cute! :)
This last video is my favorite....  first of all you have to know that Harrison LOVES to see himself - we really have to stop everytime we pass a mirror!! :)  Anyway - when he found out he could watch himself on the display screen on the camcorder he flipped out.  Now everytime that we get the camcorder out to record him doing something he runs around so he can see himself - so to tape him doing his "smile" we had to turn the screen around so he could watch himself being taped!!!  HAHA!  Enjoy! :)

Here are a couple of pictures of the Garners in the snow over the weekend!
View from my parent's front porch
(this was about half way though the afternoon -
my parents actually got about 6 inches when it was all said and done!!! CRAZY)

Harrison checking it all out....

Harrison didn't want to participate in the picture...
he wanted to play... hence the angry face!! :)

He has a whistle... and he knows how to use it!!

I'm not sure if all kids can do this - or if Harrison just has some kind of super human ability... but I'm not kidding this kid can spot a "choo choo" from 10 miles away. Serioulsy - we can be walking through the grocery store - and there's a Thomas balloon clear on the other side of the building - and Harrison will start yelling - CHOO CHOO - and pointing and I have to look around for 5 minutes before I can find it... but there it is. Or my new favorite... I got Harrison out of the car the other day - and I had to grab a bunch of bags. So I put him down and told him to go inside. He started heading for the door - I turn about to grab the bags - I turn back around - and my child is laying in the middle of the garage on the nasty floor. I immediantly think he has fallen - and I'm like "it's ok buddy - stand up and brush it off" - but NO NO.... Harrison has found the Choo Choo on the front of our recycling bin (I guess that's kinda the symbol for the city we live in since there are so many trains - so they put a picture of it on the front of the bin) and is laying on the garage floor pointing it out to me!!! HAHA!!! Anyway - so we're over at Corey's parent's house over the weekend and Harrison is playing in Mimi and G's bedroom - and we're trying to get him to go back into the other room - when on his way out he notices a choo choo. I have NO idea how this kid saw this... it was in a bag - inside of a clear bin with the lid on laying in the corner- I would have NEVER seen it... but Harrison did! I'm pretty sure that it was suppose to be part of his Easter basket - but since Harrison spoted it - Mimi let him have it. What he found was an adorable Thomas the train floor mat - complete with a Thomas whistle!! I didn't figure he would have any idea how to work the whistle - but boy was I wrong! I think it only took one person showing him how it worked before he was running around blowing that thing as hard as he could - and let me assure you - it was REALLY loud!! Without sound you can't really get the full effect - but here are a couple pictures!

and here it is.... THE WHISTLE!!!!!
