Saturday morning stroll.........

One reason I am in love with the city I live is this.....on any given day we can wake up and pick anything to do (that is more likely then not within walking distance.)

On Saturday we woke up early and decided a family stroll to the zoo was in order.

Here is Clara and Rhiannon meeting the "big kitty"

and learning where milk comes from....Although she has no idea what milk is or tastes like.......

I don't know if you remember back to when I first blogged about going to the zoo with my sister.  We were in the monkey house and this guy here tried to throw himself out of the cage to (I can only presume) eat Rhiannon's face off.   Well Rhiannon had just finished telling us how she wants to become the next Jane Goodall.  We walked up to the little dudes cage.  He was swinging back and forth, happy as can be.

As soon as he saw Rhiannon he jumped off his vine and stood there staring at her for a minute while sucking his thumb.  (Just like last time.)  All of a sudden he jumped towards her banging against the glass ,with his fangs bared just like last time!  I now believe he has a problem with her, especially
there were about 10 other people standing around the cage as well.

After our stroll, and Rhiannon's scare, we decided pancakes were in order.

The Mister and I ended our Saturday fun times with a karaoke party and some double date action.

Us lucky girls had the boy's full attention.  (insert sarcasm)

But at least we had each other!!!

I hope everyone's Monday is going well.  

The baby and I actually tried to go for a walk on this WINDY Monday and a tree fell across the road about three feet in front of us!  

(True story.  I took that as a sign to go back inside!!!!!!) 

(P.S. We are all very excited that tonight is Rhiannon's first softball game!)

Art Day

The title pretty much sums it all up.  

Today is the perfect day for non stop art.

Buehrle was very excited for the art...

Rhiannons Masterpiece!

itty bitty insomniac

Today the puppy, the baby and myself are enjoying one of the last days that we get to have a yard for a while.  I am glad it warmed up a bit before we have to move on-wards to our next adventure.

Lately the baby has decided she doesn't need to sleep anymore.  (This makes for an extremely crabby two year old....)  Every night I try and convince her a little more that sleeping is actually fun! I know I am not the only one out there who has this problem, so tell me......

How do you cure your children's insomnia?

We take silly pictures......

And long eerie walks in the fog.....

Water Bottle Killer

Do you have a water bottle killer in your house?  Because the Mister has coined that name for me and unfortunately she has struck again........

Looks like it could be a pretty neat looking vase, huh?  Well its not.  

At one time this was my sun tea pitcher.  


The Mister and I's wedding has come and gone.  We are trying to get everything in the household back to normal and as that starts happening I will definitely do a couple of recaps on my favorite vendors. 

 Until then here is Clara's newest achievement.  

She is bound to be a make up artist for sure!!!!!!!
