It was another pretty fabulous weekend for my precious family of 3. I had a night to myself on Friday night to celebrate my bestie's birthday. We went out for Mexican & margaritas and then headed back to one of the girls' houses for a much needed gab fest. We have been fighting a little bit of a nap battle with Elyse so I was more than ready for a night out. Fish tacos, mango margaritas, and fun with some of my favorite ladies is just what I needed!
|Only 4 of us went out to dinner, but we had a fabulous time...Ashley, Andrea (the birthday girl), Bethany, & myself|
On Saturday morning, I had another outing with Andrea. She normally sells bows, tutus, and other girly things at some of the local craftshows, but this year she decided to take a break. So instead...we actually went to one of the craft shows & had a blast eating some fun festival food and just hanging out. We got there early to avoid most of the crowds and ended up getting home right at lunch time.
I spent the early part of the afternoon hanging out with Hubby, listening to Elyse cry as we continued to fight through the napping issue. After a long afternoon, we finally gave it up, fed Elyse & headed out for a fun family outing...the zoo! We are lucky enough to have a pretty great zoo just 20ish minutes from our house & a baby giraffe was just born a few weeks ago. We knew Elyse wouldn't completely understand or even be able to see a lot of the animals, but we also knew it would entertain her with all the different sights, sounds, & smells.
|Pammy J (the baby giraffe) and her momma!|
|She was so beautiful!|
|In the beginning the sweet baby was just laying in the corner of their pen...but then decided to do a little showing off!|
|I think giraffes are just incredible!|
|Elyse wasn't much into taking pictures...but talked almost our entire way around the zoo.|
|I think tigers are so beautiful....the coloring is just amazing.|
|& these little kangaroos where adorable, not sure if these were joeys or another species, but they were so cute.|
|Momma, thank you for bringing me to the zoo.|
|I'm not sure what all these animals are, but I'm sure I'll enjoy it more when I'm older!|
I'm actually home from work today...Elyse's nap schedule has been so nonexistent that I decided to take a personal day & try a little different schedule. Nap #1 was a success...so we'll see how the afternoon goes. Either way, I'm so thankful for another day home with my baby girl! She brings such incredible joy to my life!
