A Day At The Zoo

Today Eric, Molly, and myself went to the Milwaukee County Zoo. I love that we have a Zoo Pass. It makes me feel like a real, American family. Okay, so not really, but I do love it. I think I see something new every time I go. The Zoo is huge, so it's easy to get lost, or see something new. The weather was great here today, so we took advantage of it. Despite the fact that I have no voice thanks to the "worst cold known to man-kind" from my husband, and my fabulous husband now has a sinus infection and pink eye in both eyes. I know, you all are jealous!

This is ALL Molly wanted to do...push the stroller. If we really let her do that every time she wanted to, we would still be at the Zoo. She would push it maybe 2 feet, then get a drink, then push it, etc, etc.

So I spared you the pics of the animals, you are welcome, so here is us on our way out to the car.

Oh my little one, who is going to be 2 in a week!

Clearly she gets the curls from me, ha...she gets them from...

This guy! I think this was Molly waving her white flag with all of the pictures.

I also went today to get Molly's birthday present. I love the fact that Molly was with me, and no she did not get an early present. She helped me put it in the cart, then I think she forgot about it. We got her a drum full of instruments. Punishment for me, happiness for Molly. Just kidding, but I am sure I will have a post or two about all the loud noise coming from Molly's room! Hope you all have a great weekend!

Aww! Your little music lover is going to have a blast with her present! Y'all look so cute in your pictures! What exact day is her birthday? I can't remember if you said already, but Lily's is the 9th :) She'll be 3.

Oh, and I am so jealous about the cold and pink eye thing, let me tell you! Ha!!

Have a great weekend!

P.S....I got your cards made today and I will try to list them in a minute (or maybe tomorrow). I made some "T" ones, but if you don't really like them, don't feel like you have to order them or anything! I am so new at this thing and then my machine quit working today too. LOL! I had to go get a new cutting blade for it.

Looks like so much fun! Love the pics!!

I have two brothers. Neither are math teachers, but one is an almost-genius at math. (And makes sure we all know it!) =)

Actually, if you want to count all my step and half brothers, I have six...but I grew up with two of them. Again...none math teachers!

The zoo is a lot of fun and thanks for sparing us pictures of animals. lol Kyndra likes pushing the stroller too, but she never gets very far. I wonder if Molly will always have curly hair or if she'll grown out of them. Your house is sure to be full of music soon!

Sounds like fun! I wish we had a zoo around here!

I hope you get better soon and that your hubs pink eye clears up quickly.

Molly is such a pretty little girl. i just adore curls! She will love all those instruments!

How funny about the zoo. I wrote a post back in May or June I think about our trip to the zoo-(What? There's animals at the zoo?) I'm not sure Bella realized there were animals there - she was so focused on playing with her friends :o)
I always liked buying gifts while Bella was with me since she had no clue. Not anymore. Have to do it all privately! Sort of fun - but takes longer :o)

Looks like you had a lot of fun! Great pictures. Our flowers here in the sweltering desert are all dead, so I am totally jealous of yours!
