This blog was started in 2008 when we did IVF for the first time to build our family after 5 1/2 years of infertility. We now have 9 and 3 year old boys (thanks to modern medicine) and we are enjoying our blessed life as parents ♥ In the summer of 2016 we took another huge step and moved across the country from Oklahoma to New York! This blog is about life and everything in between

Family Fun at the Zoo

Let me start off by showing you my little man sleeping in yesterday at 11:15am...

Needless to say I woke him up! We all 3 ran errands together all day and got a lot done. We picked up some new books to read, and got groceries and chores done. Today we spent the day at the zoo!

We met my friend Rachel and her family there around 11am, and little B got to play with the steering wheel while we waited for them to park.

This is Rachel's little girl Jet. She will be 1 in June and has a little sister due in August!

We both packed lunches and after walking around for awhile looking at everything, we found a shady table and sat down to eat. The weather was just perfect--sunny and warm but not too hot with a nice breeze. It was very busy there but we managed!

On our way to the aquarium we passed a playground and carousel. Brad got to swing while Rachel and her fam rode the carousel together.

Brad loved watching the sea lions swim around!

He especially enjoyed the petting zoo where he got to touch several goats that were just hanging out. He got to see bunnies, pigs, sheep, and a donkey too.

We had gotten pretty hot after all that walking, so we took our shoes and socks off and cooled off in the water!

We picked up some Sonic on the way home and all 3 shared a strawberry sundae to cool off. Brad conked out for his nap as soon as we got home.

And here is a pic of hubby's "new" car! A fabulous PT Cruiser! He is very happy to have a newer car that has AC, CD player, sunroof, etc. He got a great deal on it from a dealership and payed for it in cash. We switched the carseat into his car so that he isn't stuck at home with Brad whenever I am gone at work. Now they can run errands together or go to the park!

This evening I had my dad over for dinner with us. He has been feeling a lot better the last few days and it had been awhile since he had eaten a nice home-cooked meal. It is so nice to see him getting back to normal!! We were all so worried about him for the last month and a half that he has been sick.

We all had such a good day today, and I can't explain the happiness I felt when I saw Brad's face light up at the zoo. Now that he is older he can really enjoy and interact with the exhibits and animals that they have there. I don't know if he'll remember it or not, but I sure will!
