Zoo Laughs

We went to the zoo again this past week.  Since I probably take a hundred photos each time we go, I can usually capture some funny moments.  Here are five of them. 5. I took a break and sat down at a picnic table while Hobbs got us refills, and Tootsie Roll just started happily banging on the table. 4. It's always so funny and adorable to watch the kids play with the goats in the new "Wild Encounters" area.  Cupcakes went up to each and every goat this time, even if they were surrounded by … [Read more...]

Smiles, Hat, Trees & other Saturday Laughs

5. All I have to do is smile at Tootsie Roll and he smiles back at me so big! 4. She bit a "Saint Patrick's Day tree" into her apple. [Shamrock] 3. This is a game we call 'hat'.  He brings me the bowl, I put it on his head and he tries to see it until it falls off and then he picks it up to hand it to me again.  I'm in love with this picture. 2. "Mom why is your face... so close to my face??" 1. He's getting away! Linking up with the Mommyhood Chronicles … [Read more...]

Saturday Laughs with my One Year Old

5. I was trying to get Cupcakes to smile in front of this peacock, but she preferred to do Cheerleader Face.  I love peacocks. 4. I was cracking up watching Tootsie Roll cuddle up with this pillow.  I would have loved to have gotten a video, but I just couldn't get my camera out in time.  Trust me, it was adorable. 3. Well he's finally a year old, and just in time... these pictures were getting very difficult to take. 2. I painted tiger stripes on Cupcakes in the Family Play Zoo.  [This … [Read more...]

Flying Monkeys, Alligator Standing & other Saturday Laughs

5. Chasing peacocks is one of my favorite zoo activities.  :)  I'm sure the peacocks enjoy it too...  4. I go to the bathroom and am gone for 1 minute... I didn't realize this was a flying monkey. 3. I don't much care for toilet humor... 2. I was having Cupcakes try on dresses for my sister's wedding shower, and for some reason, she kept making this face.  Hilarious. 1. "Take a picture of my standing on this alligator."  We eat lunch on the go sometimes at the … [Read more...]

First #ZooDay of the Year! {Photo Dump}

Have I mentioned that I love going to the zoo?  It's true.  It's one of my favorite things: outside, awesome animals, kids LOVE it, and because my lovely mom gets me a membership for my birthday every year, it's pretty much free.  We *did* buy those ridiculously expensive souvenir cups for Hobbs and myself on our first visit, but that was only because we can bring them back every time in 2015 to get free refills all over the zoo.  Since we go so often, we'd be losing money NOT buying them.  I'm … [Read more...]

All the Babies, Sunglasses Swiper & other Saturday Laughs

5. Tootsie Roll stood up using his walkie toy and then practically raced across the room with it.  You can tell by the adorable sounds he's making that he was QUITE proud of himself! Unfortunately, Instagram won't let me embed the video (grr), so if you want to see it you'll have to click this link: Baby Runs Across Room!  Sorry.  But I promise it's worth it! 4. This picture is funny because we were trying so hard to take a family zoo picture... which is tricky when you have to do it … [Read more...]

7QT: St Patrick’s Day Party, Pizza Bagels & More

- 1 - #Updates It's feeling spring-ier and spring-ier outside!  Still, snow is everywhere and it's ugly.  I read one of my timehops from last year and it said, "I just want it to pour down rain to make all the ugly snow go away!"  That would be nice. It's Friday the 13th.  Good luck out there today! - 2 - Blog Stuff My goal is to read one blog post that I've pinned to my Bloggy & Social Media pin board per day.  I particularly enjoyed this one: - 3 - Fun, Quick Lunch Idea: … [Read more...]

7QT: BlogHer, Daycare, #ZooDay, 22 Jump Street

- 1 - Happy Friday! We have a really fun evening planned!  Hobbs won an award at work so they gave him a free dinner at the buffet where he works.  So we're packing up the kids and going to that.  Then, his security department is having some kind of thing at the local baseball game so we're bringing the kids to that.  It should be a great time.  The only thing I'm worried about is a late bed time.  Eeep. - 2 - Dessert of the Week Ice Cream.  We tried a new kind (we always get cookies n … [Read more...]
