A Lovely Day

People keep asking for pics, and since I'm exhausted and have no time to go into detail of all the fun happenings in my life, I'm simply going to post a few pics.

The first set is from our trip to the Zoo today. I have to say that I'm quite proud of the fact that I got them all in the car, out of the car, and all the way to the bathrooms at the Zoo entrance where I met up with Clare. Then, a couple hours later, I got all three monsters onto the Tram, off the Tram, back to the van, strapped in, and back home all by myself. I've come a long way from the day I attempted to go to the doctor. I just might be getting the hang of this whole mom thing.

First things first: Snack Time!

A Jaguar on the prowl. Reese is destined to be a Zoo Tour Guide.

Okay, so I just thought this was the cutest thing; a giraffe doing a split in order to eat grass. I also think it's pretty darn sad. Give the giraffe's some friggin trees.

We're in the bird sanctuary, and it becomes apparent of where not to stand. Sure enough my child finds that place. No harm though, and he is just so stinkin cute.

Lastly I will leave you with a couple pics from our trip to Opies, our neighborhood sno cone joint. I took the kids during my single mom weekend. Yep, all by myself and I still managed to take pics. The pride overfloweth, but don't worry it came with a fall. Moments after I took the shot of Blake, he dumped his sno cone on the ground.

And about the time you have Momhood all figured out, they move out on you and leave you wondering what the heck you do next.

Manuel, I'm guessing you wait for grandkids and start the whole cycle over again.

Thanks Jess, I'll check them out too. It really comes down to which one has the best deal.

That's true Hillary. The nice thing is you get to spoil the grandkids then sit and watch their parents deal with your handy work. So much fun.
