Hi. I'd like to think that my blog and I are like old friends. You know, the kind that can go months without communicating and then when they finally do, they just pick right back up where they left of? Let do that, shall we? Rather than ramble about why I slacked off and how I'll try to do better, lets just jump into whats been up lately. Sounds good? Great! Maybe I still have two readers left.
Mothers Day was last week and it was pretty amazing. Daniel and the kids woke me up with breakfast in bed, a little yogurt parfait, and then they all jumped in bed to snuggle me. *Bliss*
My mom joined us for church and then we headed out for a beautiful and fun day at the Fort Worth Zoo. We brought sandwiches and had a little picnic there. It was perfect, minus the stupid bee that was apparently hungry and though our food would make a great meal for him too.
After our picnic we headed out to explore all of the Zoo. We stopped at the giant walk through bird cage first. Birds usually really, really freak me out but for some reason I really was digging these birds. I think because they were very calm and mellow. Maybe they had been drugged. Probably not, but I appreciated their mellowness. The kids loved the birds, I think London the most. My mom has always been a "bird person". She and my dad used to sit outside on their patio and "bird watch" in our back yard. They would have a book with all kinds of birds in it and binoculars. So it goes with out saying that she was loving the giant bird cage. I'm pretty sure thats not what the zoo called it, but that is exactly what it is.
After the birds we saw all sorts of fun animals. I can't believe it, but this was London's first trip to the Zoo! I wanted to take her several time last year, but Daniel worked crazy hours all Summer long, and it never panned out. She enjoyed it so much! At first she was a little standoffish but she warmed up quickly to the animals. She enjoyed making all the appropriate animal sounds for whatever animal we were looking at. She also enjoyed all the little telephones that were through out the Zoo. You pick them up and they tell you about the animal near by. She couldn't get enough of "talking on the phone."
I think this was one of the nicest Mothers days we've had and I'm so glad that we were able to spend it with my Mom!
