Family Trip to the Zoo

Today was our first FAMILY trip to the zoo. Graham had so much fun with his daddy there. If you know Chad or me, then you know how much we LOVE LOVE LOVE the zoo! Before we had graham or were even pregnant with him, we went all of the time, Just Us Two and always had a blast. Now that we have Graham, I'm sure they will all know us by name by the end of the year. I felt so bad today because I didn't realize how warm it was going to be. I dressed Graham in a long sleeve shirt with FLANNEL lined jeans. HELLO?!?! FLANNEL!!! IN THE SPRING???? Well, I actually forgot that they were flannel. Until we got out there. mommy had sweat beading up all around her forehead and upper lip and I started freaking out because I was so scared that Graham was going to overheat. So i took off his socks and shoes, rolled up his jeans and pushed the sleeves up on his shirt. Poor baby. Don't worry. I gave him plenty of water in his big boy sippee cup.


We met our friends, Amy and Brad Steelman and their 7 month old little girl, Rylee out there. Rylee was super sweet on Graham and I just know they are going to be great friends! We are going to get the babies together again soon so they can roll around on the floor and play. They are both developing pretty much at the same pace (they are about 2.5 weeks apart) so it will be fun to watch them play.














what a life!!!

How sweet! I'm so jealous-I wish we had a zoo here! I love animals and when I used to go to Arkansas Children's Hospital for my eye I got to go to the zoo all the time. Maybe one day we'll get one here!

thanks for the sweet comment!

about the diet.. its an 11 day diet that you can access online. the website is http://fatloss4idiots.com/ You get to choose between 15 and 30 foods, and you get a menu for 11 days. After 11 days you can quit or just take a 3 day break and eat whatever you want.
I lost about 8 pound in my 11 days, but since it was my first time doing it, I'm not sure if the weight will stay off.
