Through The Eyes of The Ladybug

Today we went back to the Cameron Park Zoo in Waco, I think it is time to look into getting  membership to a zoo; we spend ALOT of time at zoos!!

As we were getting ready I was trying to think of a way to put a new spin on a frequent trip (I think my car could drive itself by now!).  Safi loves to take pictures but I am reluctant to give her my "big camera" to take pictures with and my phone is full!!!  Then I remembered that I have a little silver point and shoot that my Dad gave me YEARS ago.  Perfect, so I charged the battery while I was scurrying around and we were set to go.  I would surprise Safi when we got to the zoo.

These are all pictures that Safi took, she was Over The Moon about having her own camera and taking pictures of the animals.  She was so very careful with the camera and that ginormous smile never left her face.  The Zoo was another awesome trip and Safi saw many new things there today.......

To begin, I must show you what Safi looked like while she was taking pictures.  Her Daddy tried to get her to look through the viewfinder of the camera.  It was quite funny, then I just couldn't take it anymore so I had to show her how to look at the little screen on the back.

And now on to the zoo.........

This is the potty, she had to take a picture of it before she could pee.

Monkeys in the tree!!

Fun on a Rainy Day

This morning was DRAGGING!!! It seemed as if the time were actually moving backward :/

Safi came out and said she wanted to wear her Ladybug Boots (they are rain boots), I thought it was appropriate since it was rainy and wet outside.  So we came up with an outfit to match the boots (red and black of course).

Once dressed we headed outside to splash in the puddles and run in the rain!!!

Safi had fun and the time seemed to move by a little faster :)

Fun with Aunt Mad and Uncle D

Madelyn and Denys came for a visit today, well Madelyn was planning on coming and Denys was a welcome bonus :)

Safi couldn't have been more excited. Plans ended up changing because the weather was a little colder than expected. It was a beautiful day but the wind made things a little chilly, so no zoo :(

Instead we all piled into the car and headed out to feed he starving college students and the Ladybug. Chuy's, Safi wanted a creamy and guac fix!!!

From there we went to go "throw balls"aka bowling. It is pretty safe to say Safi did better than all of us, little cheater :))

Safi had so much fun and it was awesome to see "My Kids" helping my little girl. The smiles on all their faces was so wonderful to see.

After coming home Safi took over as boss and she had Denys in her hand.

Madelyn had he own fun with Isabel :))

A Cold Weekend with Pops and SueSue

This weekend Safi and I packed up and headed to Pops and SueSue's house, it was time for a change of scenery!!

We had a nice uneventful weekend, but I don't think that anyone would have traded it for the world!!

Dinner with Uncle Jerry and Aunt Pat on Friday night, tromping about one of Pops' work sights, S'Mores, helping haul wood, a walk that ended up in a two hour stoller nap for Safi, playing phone games, and making memories!!!  Sounds like a good weekend.  Oh and getting to sleep with Mommy in the "Big Bed" for the first time.
