Welcome to the Roe household blog. We're attempting to post 365 days of pictures in a Roe. Cork and I have been married since 2002 and welcomed identical daughters in August of 2009 after a struggle with infertility. Our girls were definitely worth the wait and I say they were destined to be here because they were conceived on my birthday, due on my sister's birthday and born on my grandma's birthday. What are the chances of that! We welcomed our third daughter in June of 2012. We all fell in love with her right away. She has two amazing older sisters who love to watch over her.

Lions and Tigers and ...Well, Maybe Just Cats
We went to the zoo today and saw all types of big cats. The year old tigers were playing in their outside enclosure. One of them ran at the glass and jumped right at us. The kids loved it! The lions were inside, but right up against their glass. While we were there, the girls got their first introduction to the birds and the bees. The lions were mating and a father explained it to his two young daughters in medical terms. There was talk of ovaries, ovulation, and much much more. In my opinion, it was all very age appropriate for his daughters. At the end of his explanation I told him that it was refreshing to hear someone tell their children the truth. He told me that I should come to the zoo in the summer and listen to some of the "garbage" other parent's tell their kids.
